OFFER: No Contract, No Problem - HTC America to directly offer the HTC One Financed by way of Credit
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:57 CET under 04 - Android News

While unsubsidized mobile phones and smartphones are pretty common in other regions of the world, it still looks like U.S. Americans are pretty much sold to its carriers, instead of going carrier-free. As a matter of fact, and I know it from my own experiences, it's pretty hard in the U.S. to get a SIM card sans device. Nevertheless, as said it's common in other parts of the world to go contract free. For instance have we "O2 My Handy" (handy is the "German term for mobile phone) here in Germany which works independent from a mobile phone contract and which allows you to purchase a mobile phone which is financed by way of credit. This means you pay upfront a small amount and the rest 24 months equally.
