With the release of the HTC One, Verizon customers were dismayed. Suddenly, the rumors started flying. Will there be a Verizon version of the HTC One? Will a different device come to Verizon with similar specs? What about the DLXPLUS? Neither HTC nor Verizon have said a word about this situation, until now. HTC’s director of public relations Tom Harlin had this to say:
There are tons of rumors online but we haven’t made any official announcement about HTC One coming to Verizon. 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.
His words are very open to interpretation, but it seems that HTC has no plans to release anything in the near future. The DROID DNA has been doing well as “the HTC hero smartphone at Verizon” with specs that are still very competitive, so why release a new device? And he made sure to let us know that if they were to announce something, we’d know about it.
So with the DROID DNA on the market and what seems like no plans to bring the One to Verizon anytime soon, are you Verizon customers upset? Do you still have hope after this? Leave a comment!
