Tweet from HTC USA confirms no HTC One for Verizon
different name? There has been talk about a sequel to the HTC DROID DNA called the HTC DLX Plus that would be every inch the same as the HTC One. At one time, the DROID DNA was code named the DLX, so a DLX Plus would make sense. Ok, but what about the tweet? Well, the tweet doesn't say that Verizon won't offer a phone with the same specs as the HTC One. It merely says that the carrier will not be offering a phone named the HTC One.
Why wouldn't Verizon want the HTC One? It might be due to the amount of money that Verizon has spent promoting the HTC DROID DNA and doesn't want that phone surpassed so quickly by a new HTC model. The HTC DROID DNA is no greybeard by any stretch of the imagination. Still, missing the opportunity to offer such as powerhouse as the HTC One would not make any sense for Verizon, which makes it more likely that the HTC One will be sold by Verizon, but under a different name. In the meantime, by the end of next month Verizon customers will be able to turn to the Samsung Galaxy S 4 for a top-shelf device with the latest specs.
