You never read my review for the Note? Twice as long as that insubstantial read! ;p

Telecom serves up an Ice Cream Sandwich, fast

Telcom is pleased to welcome the HTC One X and One V to the Smartphonenetwork™.

Telecom’s Chief Marketing Officer, Jason Paris, says the speed and reliability of New Zealand’s only 100% 3G mobile network, compliments the HTC One X’s ultra fast quad core processor, allowing customers to talk, text, tweet and share when it matters the most.

“Whether you’re taking amazingly vibrant photos while shooting HD video, or savouring the authentic sound of your favourite tunes, putting these powerful HTC handsets on our smartphone specced 3G network will help you capture every moment and share it, fast.”

“The devices enable multimedia power and fast web browsing on a crisp HD display, or a sophisticated design that’ll wow your friends at the bar, our new HTC range has you sorted.”

For business customers, Android offers access to a wide range of existing business apps, while the ultra fast processing capability enhances productivity and collaboration, by enabling more efficient multi-tasking between business applications and personal tools.
For all users, sharing photos, video or presentations on your compatible HD TV is effortless, using a unique ‘swipe to screen’ action. The HTC One X boasts a 1.5Ghz quad-core chipset with four high-performance CPU cores, giving you powerful multi-tasking and smooth, ultra responsive apps, games and music.

The HTC One X and HTC One V both feature the attractive HTC Sense interface and Ice Cream Sandwich, the newest Android release.

The HTC One X is $0 on a 24Month $100 Smartphone plan and the HTC One V is $0 on a 24 Month $60 Smartphone plan.

Pre-orders will be live on Telecom’s website from 10 April, and available online and in store on 26 April. Gen-i clients should contact their client manager for more information.

So, does this mean they won't be messing with the firmware any more? Maybe just adding in a couple of their own apps and leaving it at that...?

That's an amazingly fast release! I'd had my S2 for four months before Telecom released it here...

After watching all of the hands on reviews yesterday, I just called Clove and switched my order to white. The grey just looked really unremarkable and didn't show off the amazing design, plus the glossy edges on the grey look strange. Will have to wait an extra 2 days because they're a bit backlogged on the white model, but I figure I'll have it for years so what's two more days? Now to wait for another 10 days for it to arrive...argh.

Looks like Expansys have updated their HTC One availability from pre-order to "Normally less than 5 days".
I've pre-ordered mine so will be interesting to see when it actually ships.
But all signs point to soon.

Yep looks like they found a white one to ship to me yesterday via Royal Mail. Can't wait! Motorwayne, your comments about the white version definitely stuck with me and convinced me to go that route!

Good to see one of the Telco's finally taking a major product that doesn't have a picture of a fruit on it seriously.

I don't think Telecom changed anything of any merit on the SGS2 did they? Just a browser rebrand, some CSC tweaks and that was about it I think?

Fair call, your review is more substantial, he pads it out by having a ridiculous amount of largely unnecessary photos. :)

My DHD has a gel case on it. Looking at the dimensions given in the review for the One X, it is the same width, about 10mm longer but about 3mm thinner than the DHD in its case. That has relieved my concern a little at the OneX's size. When I saw it compared in one review to the Galaxy Note I thought it might be a bit of a pocket buster but was reassured to read that it is shorter than the Galaxy Nexus. Hopefully with a polycarbonate shell and toughened glass screen it won't need to be covered and will still fit in my pocket.
My fervent hope is it will be marketed in the same bracket as the Lumia and not like the Sensation which at $1100 put it out of consideration. Mind you the OneX is a quantum jump on the Sensation.
