Verizon outlines HTC 10 pre-order details

The wireless carrier is the first to offer up a date, but still doesn't have a price.

Verizon Wireless on Tuesday confirmed it will begin offering pre-orders of the HTC 10 starting from April 29.

The actual launch of the handset is not expected until some time in early May; Verizon did not outline a hard date. Moreover, it’s not clear what price Verizon plans to tap the phone with as it stopped short of any real concrete details. As a reference, the unlocked HTC 10 can be had from HTC’s website for $699.

To sweeten the deal, Verizon has a number of promotions available for current and prospective customers. For instance, the carrier will give buyers three months of HBO Now, offer credit for trading in old phones, will pay off early termination fees for those who switch from another provider.

Customers interested in trying out the HTC 10 can swing by a Verizon retail store starting from April 29 to get some hands-on time with the phone.
