Submission + - HTC does what Google wouldn't: sell an LTE phone that sidesteps AT&T->

schwit1 writes: You won't see it advertised on billboards or television, you won't hear it mentioned in a carrier store, and your less technologically-savvy friends most certainly won't know about it — but quietly, HTC's done something extraordinarily important this month: it's broken AT&T's stranglehold on its nationwide LTE network.

It's a move that even Google, for all its money, power, and influence, didn't make with the Nexus 4.

HTC is shipping both 32 and 64GB versions of the superlative One — an early contender for the best phone of 2013, and arguably the best Android phone ever made — in a carrier- and bootloader-unlocked version that supports both T-Mobile and AT&T LTE. No strings attached.
