Verizon HTC One seems to have been a fairly popular topic over the recent weeks.

AT&T lowered the price of the HTC First late last week and naturally, that had some questioning the success of the phone. To give a little background here, the HTC First was the first phone to launch with Facebook Home and it came available with AT&T on April 12.

HTC One, you probably saw the smartphone also will be coming in red. Since then however, we haven't heard or seen anything regarding this option but today one UK retailer has it listed for sale.
HTC One coming to Verizon Wireless. Well, maybe not as much back and forth as rumors.
