Apparently at Verizon "One" is the loneliest number. Their love fest with Motorola is ridiculous.
I know what you mean. I gave up HTC out of frustration with Sense a long time ago. Now I feel differently about it and await the One.
Samsung seems to be equally as touted at Verizon as Motorola, though. Haven't counted 'em up, but there are a lot of Samsung products there.
I also can't stand seeing iPads in the Verizon stores.. but that's just me.
talked to Verizon yesterday about it, and the only info i got was that
A- rumored for Aug 1
B- A case for the HTC One from Verizon begins sales on Aug 1
C- It is guaranteed by the end of the summer (sept 21)
Also all the news/ rumors suggest either Aug 1 or Sept 5.
Just a summation of all the facts i know of
Well, we've all seen the "leaked" Verizon roadmap:
you know what i just realized, is that the roadmap is pretty much BS because we hve not seen the LG exalt yet, and it lacks all info of the new droids... also if they are going to sell the one on the 1st, they are not putting any prep time into it... unless they are just going to unveil it then, and sell it on say sept 5th?
Are we sure they meant summer of this year.
LOL! I suspect they may push back the launch date for the One because they'll want to hype the latest "Droids" for a bit, but that's just from past experience. Maybe they're going to start becoming more customer focused now and release it sooner? In the meantime, unless it's coming from Samsung, Motorola, or Apple I wouldn't worry about hearing about it from Verizon directly. Check the forums and Android news sites as a Verizon version of the One will probably get more press there. :dalek:
True. I have been checking the other sites for updated sighting news without any luck. Everything now seems to be speculation.
Well, if you believe VZW store employees (and who does, really?), then maybe August 1st is still the date.
Just chatted with a Verizon customer service rep. He told me the One would be released in August but was unsure of the date.
While reviewing documents at work, I was researching the HTC One for a friend. I was unable to find any information whatsoever on the phone itself.
However, What I did find is a Case/Holster for the HTC One that's scheduled to be launched on 8/1/13
You can put two and two together

Well, I guess we'll know soon enough, since 8/1 is tomorrow
Keeping fingers crossed!! (but, not holding my breath)
Launch date moved to 08/15.
Verizon HTC One Launch Bumped to August 15 – Droid Life
I see they stopped letting you use unlike device upgrades for unlike new devices.
Before I could move my Xoom tablet upgrade over, and use it as a available upgrade for my next new smartphone, but, I guess now, only tablets can upgrade to tablets, and only smartphones can upgrade to smartphones.
My question is, will I be able to use my Xoom eligible upgrade on the HTC-One-Max(a Phablet), or is that still too different??
I'm pretty sure phablets fall under the phone branch, as they still get voice service. That's the differentiator for vzw.
was afraid of that
Tablets can only upgrade to other tablets.
Phones can upgrade to phones.
It changed to this in the past couple months.
That's what he said. How is he incorrect?
I just read on AndroidAndMe site that the HTC One release date has moved to 8.15.13. Not sure how true it is.
Yeah, sadly, he's saying the HTC One Max(Phablet) will count as a smartphone, not as a tablet, so, I won't be able to use my Xoom upgrade to upgrade to the Max :-/
Sorry I wasn't aware that phablet was a legitimate word. Thought he was meaning the word Tablet.
HTC One max will be a phone.
by the time the HTC One launches on VZW no one will care. I don't even see the point of it. How old is it now? About 4 or 5 months old?
Yeah, I kind of hate the word too:
Phone + Tablet = Phablet
But, it does, in some cases, accurately describe the device.
