HTC One Max comes to Verizon, with some smaller Androids in tow

HTC’s largest screened smartphone to date debuted last month, and ever since we’ve had our eye on the One Max’s arrival in the States. Last week we were talking about Sprint’s plans for the phablet, but today we’ve got Verizon in our sights, learning of the handset’s arrival alongside two much more petite Androids.

The One Max itself will run Verizon users just about $300 on-contract. While not exactly surprising, given Verizon’s penchant towards pricing phablets in this manner, we’re still worried that specs like the Snapdragon 600, versus a beefier 800, might make it hard for shoppers to rationalize the price. We’ve also got to consider that Sprint’s on-contract One Max is only $250, or even just $150 if you’re porting a number.

What about those smaller phones? Verizon’s also getting Samsung’s Galaxy S 4 Mini and the S III Mini. It’s a little bizarre to see it introduce an old phone like that at this point, but maybe it thought the GS4M needed company. The GS3M will go for nearly $50 on-contract, while the GS4M is closer to $100 – both those prices are after mail-in rebates.

All three Androids are available from Verizon online and in stores as of today.
