The Verizon HTC One is on the horizon, and please excuse our poor play of words there. Through its official Twitter account, Big Red revealed that the much anticipated phone is all set to be doled out coupled with its 4G LTE coverage this summer. No concrete release date details or price information has been put forth however. Supply issues of course are being seen as the main reason for the delay in its arrival, even as AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile have already started selling it in the US.
Following its debut in February this year, it was to start hitting major markets in mid-March, but manufacturing delays forced it to come out late in the said month. This also led to its release in markets like Asia being pushed into April. In India, it was out on sale in May, and is available now at a price of Rs 42,900. Recently, we also saw a Nexus Edition of the device being unveiled. This variant bears a stock version of the Android 4.2.2 OS, and is set to hit the US this month priced at $599.
