The hot-new HTC One is already available from a number of carriers in Canada — including Bell, Rogers, TELUS and SaskTel — and the list may not stop there. Two smaller players, Mobilicity and Videotron, are apparently preparing to join this trend, as well.
The information comes from XDA-Developers Forums, where one thread talks about two Android smartphones identified as “CA_Videotron VIDEO001” and “CA_Dave DAVE_001.” DAVE, for those who don’t know, stands for “Data & Audio-Visual Enterprises Holdings Inc.” which operates as Mobilicity.
Of course, this is still in the “rumors phase” and we’ll rather have to wait for the official press release from either HTC or any of the two carriers (or both) when we can get back to you with all the details, including the price. We do know the HTC One is sold by most Canadian carriers for $99.99 with a three-year contract or $650 sans any strings attached. It’s fair to guess Mobilicity and Videotron will keep a similar price though you never know…
