HTC One shown in Blue, but now coming to Verizon Aug 29?

0. phoneArena 06 Aug 2013, 13:14 posted on

Today one of our tipsters informed us that Verizon has communicated to its reps that the HTC One is now being pushed back (again) until August 29th. No reason was given, but it seems that they don't want a competing phone to be released until after the new Motorola DROID Ultra, MAXX, and Mini are released on the 20th.

yes. It just might take Verizon a while to shelf it, like the One, and every other freaking phone that's not a droid or iPhone >:( I can't post the link but google search lg g2 verizon and there should be an engadget link at the top saying LG execs name Verizon as a partner

Past history indicates no, they'll release a similar upper-midrange phone instead. LG hasn't gotten any love from VZW since the Ally.

I hope for our sake and LG's that you're right, but I'm not getting my hopes up on rumors.

It was PA that got the wrong roadmap leaked in the first place, putting an Aug 1 release date into the air. Now the same thing is happening with Aug 29th.

EXACTLY. There was no "delay", there was, and indeed remains, inaccurate reporting of unsubstantiated rumor by PA. Sourced as "anonymous tipster".

At least the readers should get an apology, but instead we get this "article". PA was wrong about Aug 1. PA was wrong about Aug 15. If you are wrong about Aug 29 will you admit your complete inaccuracies?

If you're talking about cellphones...........i think its verizon, but not by much. Both AT&T and Verizon have mirrored each other throughout the years and both companies will say that they're the biggest mobile company in the US

if you're talking about overall (internet, cable, etc.) then AT&T is bigger than Verizon

AT&T Internet and cable are horrible. Plus, he asked which one is the biggest mobile company in the US which is Verizon.

This is more or less a story of too little too late. The phone while it's a decent device just can't compete with the Galaxy S4 nor will it be able to hold a following after the Motorola Ultra line is released and with the Moto X coming too why would anyone want this phone unless it gets a much needed spec bump to the internals.

The Moto Ultra and X are mid tier phones.

For Verizon, the Ultra and MAXX will be top of the line. In the absence of competing phones like the G2, and with the One arriving so late to the party, the Droids will be pushed as this year's flagships.

Um...I tried the GS4 but went back to the One. It's still a great phone! Your first sentence is true, I'll give you that, but the One can hang with any device out.

Lol, the Moto X has nothing on the One. You, my friend, are insane.

1080p Snapdragon 600, compared to a 720p S4 Pro?

The camera is better on One, the design is better. The sound is better.

Early reviews indicate the One's camera is only better on paper. Seems Motorola's RGBC was actually a better way to deal with low light than HTC's UltraPixels. As for processors, the GPU is identical, and that's what you'll experience day to day, not the CPU.

Other than that, the main advantages are the 1080 screen and dual speakers. I'd rather have near-stock than Sense, so I'm willing to accept lesser A/V.

This is a lot like what VZW did with the Rezound and Droid Razr in 2011. Even though the Rezound was superior in some ways, it was pushed out and pushed out until it was released after the Razr. Verizon loves its Motorola Droids and will give them preferential treatment, unless something clearly better (like the Droid DNA vs. Razr HD) comes along.

What's the point of even releasing the One this late in the game? It is more of an embarrassment to release a phone this far behind competitors then to pass on a phone altogether. It is what you would expect from some local provider. Wait, actually my local carrier (Cincinnati Bell) has had it available for a couple months.

No confirmed screenshot as with the last 2 leaked release dates? Seems a little sketchy.

Could it be possibly that the blue version is delayed until 8/29? Verizon obviously isn't thinking this phone will fly off the shelves. It's the contracts they want that's what brings them the money the cash they get from the phones is negligible.
