Exclusive: Verizon to offer HTC One in blue
Thanks to our source, we have learned that Verizon’s inventory systems have been updated with an additional SKU (stock keeping unit) code, HTC6500LVWBLU along with the description “HTC One in Blue.”
That leaves little room for interpretation, Verizon will be launching a blue color option for this device since it apparently missed the opportunity to score a red model which is coming to Sprint. Our source is not sure of the actual shade of blue, but hypothesized that it could be along the same vein as what we saw offered with the Windows Phone 8X by HTC.
Regarding the actual launch of the HTC One on Verizon, our source has confirmed that a launch in August is “definite,” but cannot confirm the newly reported August 15th date we have seen through other sources. No date has been noted for the HTC One in blue.
Pricing is apparently another item that is not set in stone yet either. Given the amount of time that has passed since the HTC One has launched with other carriers, and the strong showing of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and the upcoming wave of new Motorola devices, Verizon and HTC will have to think their pricing scheme creatively to make the One shine amongst the landscape of choices soon-to-be available.
Thanks for the tip!
