Well, my HTC One finally arrived yesterday after an agonizing 2 week wait. But in the end, it was well worth the wait because I only paid $574 for an unlocked version directly from HTC.com. Of course, unlocked here means that the phone is “SIM” unlocked for using with any GSM network, the bootloader is still locked (but you can use HTCDev.com to unlock that).

Although I didn’t go to Google IO this year (I probably never will as I don’t like going to shows anymore), I had the chance to “de-virginize” a brand, spanking new Nexus 7 Android tablet on the day it was released thanks to CruzerLite CEO Joel, who allowed me to do the unboxing. (Thanks a ton Joel!)
After trying the original Galaxy S2 back over in South Korea about a week back, I decided to purchase the unlocked Galaxy Note on Amazon. I was really sold on the product that you can take notes and the screen is big. Since I already have AT&T SIM card, it would work better for me to get the unlocked version, plus I can use it freely whenever I go overseas. (The AT&&T Galaxy Note will come locked and subsidized.)
