A quick public service reminder for all you Sprint fans this morning as the HTC One Max hits store shelves this morning beginning at $149. Unfortunately, the surprise $149 price tag is for new customers only with existing Sprint subscribers forking over $249 for the chance to own HTC’s newest One device.

 

Customers on Sprint’s One Up early upgrade plan can grab the One Max for $25 per month. Interestingly enough, Sprint’s press release earlier this week indicated new line pricing for the One Max would be $249 however, the website is still showing a $149 price tag as I select a new line of service. Holiday surprise or Sprint error? If you’re a new customer on Sprint I’d jump at the opportunity to grab this reduced pricing before someone gets wise and boosts the price back up. Of course, you can always keep your eye on special pricing from the likes of Amazon who will probably offer up some crazy deal within a few days.
