There has been plenty of back and forth in terms of the HTC One coming to Verizon Wireless. Well, maybe not as much back and forth as rumors. Regardless though, HTC execs had been chatting on Yahoo! earlier today and naturally, the subject of the Verizon HTC One came up. The question was posed in two parts with the first being whether Verizon will be getting a version of the One.
The second part went on to ask if there was another model in development for Verizon. It almost seems like the second part was asked knowing the first part was going to result in a no. The interesting and somewhat frustrating part here, HTC Director of PR Tom Harlin didn’t say yes or no. Instead he mentioned another previously released phone.
Harlin started with the rumors here by saying that while there have been “tons of rumors” they have yet to make any official announcement about the HTC One coming to Verizon. If you take that for what it is, they simply haven’t made any announcement — he didn’t say yes it would or no it would not be released. Harlin then went on to mention the DROID DNA.
“The DROID DNA continues to be the HTC hero smartphone at Verizon. It launched in late 2012, it’s features still compete with products in 2013. When we announce our next product with Verizon, we’ll make a big deal about it so you’re all aware.”
Basically, a non-answer on the Verizon HTC One. The interesting part here is the fact the question continues to come up. If nothing else, that should show HTC that people really want to see the One on Verizon. So how about it, anyone here still have hope in terms of seeing the HTC One released with Verizon? Or have you moved on and began looking towards another recently released handset?
