Yeah none of the amazon/ebay ones have caught my eye, surprisingly the double dip hard shell case actually looks really good to me.

Bit worried about the potentially scratching from it but yeah wbu?

So can we recap what are our options at the moment of ordering the HTC One in NZ other than Clove and Handtec?

Not too many options. If you want one, the only place I know that's taking orders is Noel Leeming. They don't advertise the handset at all, but if you ask for it in-store, you can make a pre-order.

OK

Spent the last 4 hours going through it.
The phone is fab.
Have to say at the moment I am not a great fan of the BlinkFeed.
But the phone lets you swap a standard home screen as the default.

The screen is super bright. Colours are more natural than on a Galaxy S2 and S3.
The speakers are amazing!!!
The included earphones are a complete surprise - they are actually better than my pair of SOL!!!
Have some more pics and a couple of videos so will post those tomorrow.
Will also take some pics tomorrow and post those too.
But so far I am very impressed.

Nice one dauckland! :)
Hey, have you been using Zoe much? I'm not sure if it's a gimmick, or useful.
Seems cool, but I didn't think I would use it much. However rave reviews from media have been changing my mind and making me think I'm overlooking it's benefits.

Also, have you found any apps looking funny because they're not originally built for such a high ppi display?

Vodafone - nope. But from my sources it may be around the $1149 mark as it's 4G.

Telecom - while it's 4G, as they don't have a network to support it, their pricing is $999.

Availability for Telecom is around early May. It's going to be a long long month.

Yep going to be a long month waiting for the One. 

I have gone and brought a case already and its a tad pricey but it only costs the same as one take out meal.

Been looking for a while and this seems to be the best option without covering the phone up.

I'm not to keen on the "inflation" were seeing on cellphone prices these days. $1149 for both the S4 and the One? I shudder to think of the price of a brand new phone in a few years time and its not like we have decently priced contracts  like the states do to warrant it.

That's why I jumped on the $999 Telecom handset. With 20% off during Easter, I got mine for $799.

I want to put it on a plan or I might go finance through work.

Currenty (expires soon) if u get the a 2 year $59 plan u get $400 off, so if they bring that back (they wont) I would get 2 yr plan for a $600 HTC one.

I might just go through finance at work
