It was expected to be expensive. The S4 is also expected at this price or about a 1k lower... Nothing to be surprised here.

I'd pick HTC One over Samsung S4 anyday. Atleast now we can expect a major price cut for HTC Butterfly :D

All flagships (except few) have started to cost more than 40K at least the MRP. No idea what the street price will be.

No doubt HTC repeats what BlackBerry do. As d later also announce it's products at enormous prices which is inappropriate according to market trends , as in the case of BB Z10. Same is that of HTC Butterfly and now 'One'. These companies must present something new and refreshing , as Nokia did by launching WP 8 devices at favorable prices , to survive in market :idea:

For all who are considering it as Expensive!
S 4 will be rocking @ 40-45k !
and for this Build quality and H/W, you won't get it for Nexus's Price!

Better to go for Xperia Z then which has a better camera and is also water and dust proof ;)

HTC already had a potential winner in their hands. With this sensible pricing, they have done a world of good to themselves.

What?
I sure hope you didnt mean to say HTC copies Blackberry..

While the price is high without doubt, one cant really expect those specs for a lower price at launch either. HTC is desperate but desperate not to show it, unlike Sony. But with the Butterfly selling at 44k odd I can only marvel at the level or thick-headedness of the HTC big-shots.

And I expect the base variant of s4 to be priced LOWER than the HTC One. Its always been that way, Samsung trying to marginally undercut HTC. Mark my words.

No.

It has the SAME chipset as One just its clocked at lower speed.

I don't think so. Htc one has some 600 series chipset which was shown at CES 2013. But X:Z got S4 pro like nexus 4. Or maybe i am wrong someone else can clear it.
