HTC Has Us Thinking Twice About HTC One for Verizon

Advertisement

Those of you who have been following the arrival of the HTC One have no doubt heard of the messy situation posed by the possibility of the phone coming to Verizon. First we heard that Verizon would pass on the One initially, in hopes to prolong sales of the Droid DNA. Then it was looking like maybe Verizon was going to get the One in the some general timeframe as everyone else, with evidence pointing to its availability later this month. Now we’re once again talking about a Verizon without the One, thanks to a recent tweet from HTC.

HTC’s US branch responded to a question on Twitter by stating quite matter-of-factly, “the HTC One will not be available on the Verizon network.”

Now, that could be some coy way of saying, “oh no, the HTC One won’t come to Verizon, but the HTC Droid Whatever will,” but if so, that’s a pretty annoying way to answer the question. It’s also worth noting that HTC has since deleted the tweet; that could mean that this was bad info, or maybe just something that Verizon doesn’t want publicized. Unfortunately, that open ending leaves us continuing to be unsure as to the phone’s ultimate fate on the carrier.
