Verizon Won’t Carry Any HTC One Devices In The Near Future

There is little question that many of us (and you) love what HTC has developed with their new HTC One series of devices. The flagship HTC One X is arguably the best Android phone on the market, the slim One S is a beautiful piece of design and the entry-level One V is sure to find lots of sales as a mid-range device. Despite all of this, Verizon has seemingly turned away HTC’s newest smartphones from their store shelves.

According to HTC spokesman Jeff Gordon, “Verizon is not going to be carrying either of the HTC One devices currently announced.” Well, WTF Verizon?

I mean, I get it…Verizon has the DROID Incredible 4G LTE, as much a clone of the HTC One S as HTC can get. Moreover, it isn’t like Verizon doesn’t have a bountiful line of Android devices available to them. Still, what gives? The HTC One X qualifies as a top-of-the-line device, much more-so than the DROID Incredible 4G LTE does and is likely to pull in more sales to boot.

Verizon may be getting Samsung’s Galaxy S III if rumors and leaks are correct, but that doesn’t mean they should put all their eggs in one basket. Carrying the HTC One line gives Android fans a solid choice between the two top Android manufacturers flagship handsets. Now that AT&T has started to really kick their LTE network in gear with speeds that rival Verizon, I don’t know why Verizon would pass on such an awesome device.

Still, the quote from Gordon specifically says devices that have been “currently announced,” and doesn’t hint anything for the future.

What do you think? Would you like to see the HTC One X on Verizon?
