T-Mobile confirms April 24th launch date for HTC One on Twitter?

The latest rumored date for an HTC One on T-Mobile was April 24th, but without official word we were naturally reluctant to put 100% of our faith into that date. A new development has made believers out of us, though, as the T-Mobile support Twitter account seems to have confirmed the aforementioned date to a user.

Oddly enough, the Tweet mentions that T-Mobile previously announced the date to be April 24th, but we know that never happened. Perhaps this support rep — using the tag “AG” to identify themselves in the Tweet — was just confused, or perhaps they let something slip that they weren’t supposed to just yet. Going further, the rep stated the device “should” be available both in all stores and online.

We’ve had our fair share of “gotchas” by now to know not to take this one series of Tweets at face value, but with this information lining up with recent rumors we can’t help but think the date has some legs. We’ll see if T-Mobile has anything to say about this apparent confirmation in due time.

    “… the rep stated the device “should” be available both in all stores and online.”

    Was there a second tweet that said this? I know there won’t be One’s at my local stores on the 24th.

    and tmonews says about the same tweet: “At the very least, it’s just one more confirmation that T-Mobile will truly drop the HTC One (in select stores) one week from tomorrow.” Where did you get the “all stores and online” bit from?

      It was a follow up tweet in the same conversation.

    Still waiting for T MO to send me notification that it can be preordered since I signed up, if this date where true I would think they would of sent that notification out by now ,but who knows either way it looks like where getting real close and I really can’t wait to get my hands on one …

      TMO replied to me on Twitter that the Preorder option was no longer available! It never was available for preorder on their site. I check their sites and sites like phandroid every hour every day for such an announcement.

    I totally understand not having a release date for the HTC One as early as last September. But 2 weeks before the launch? Come the eph on, guys.

    Carriers need to start announcing their lineup 2 to 3 months in advance, so people can make an informed decision about what they want to buy and save up for it (if necessary). Even if it wasn’t an exact date, I’d be very happy with a “week of” announcement.

    I’d be pissed if I bought a phone only to have another, unannounced phone, released a week after I bought my new device, that was better. Most carriers don’t even announce IF they’ll be carrying a device before hand, let alone WHEN.

    Consumers need to stand up to this kind of bullying. And T-Mobile isn’t by ANY means the only carrier who does this.
