Exclusive: HTC M7 initial U.S. launch partners to include T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T – Verizon launch delayed
For months, we’ve been hearing that the upcoming HTC M7 would be the first HTC device to launch on all four major U.S. carriers since the HTC Tilt 2. We’ve heard descriptions of a Sprint branded device and seen evidence to suggest that the M7 would also be heading to Verizon and AT&T.
According to one of our most trusted sources, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will launch partners for the HTC M7 in the U.S. market. While there are details that show a Verizon variant of the phone is in the works, our source claims that the launch of the Verizon HTC M7 will be delayed. Our source was not able to elaborate on why Verizon is delaying its launch of the M7, but we have a feeling that they may want to put some distance between the M7 and the HTC Droid DNA since the two devices are so closely related.
Based on previous details from a different source, we expect the HTC M7 to go on sale in Europe on March 8th. The roll-out of the HTC M7 on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will most likely follow a few weeks later. Hopefully, HTC will lay out all of the HTC M7 launch details at the February 19th press event in New York and London.
