Sprint Scores a Red HTC One, Adds NextRadio App
Sprint today announced that a red version of the HTC One will be available online and in stores beginning Friday, August 16. It costs $199.99 with a new contract. Sprint is still offering the black and silver versions of the One. Sprint said that between August 16 and August 30, it is offering a buy-one, get-one free deal on the HTC One. In addition to the new shade, Sprint is offering the NextRadio interactive FM radio application to the One and EVO 4G LTE. NextRadio acts like a streamed internet radio station, but instead of pulling data over the network, uses the built-in FM radio to capture music. The radio requires the use of headphones, which serve as an antenna. The NextRadio app will be preinstalled on select devices moving forward. It is also available for download from the Google Play Store for free.
