It looks like Wednesday could be Verizon's announcement of the ONE, but I'm not too confident. But things are lining up nicely.
1) DNA on sale for FREE until Tuesday
2) HTC is ramping up production
3) Samsung S4 already announced
4) Nokia already announced
5) Google I/O passed without any mention of the X phone
That leaves very few OEMs available to make a big announcement on Big Red.
I would be extremely shocked if HTC modifies the One for Verizon. Not saying that they won't but it doesn't fit in with their (HTC's) entire marketing and sales strategy.
