Exclusive: Verizon secures exclusive March 25 US retail launch of the all new HTC One
If you’re still holding a grudge against Verizon for releasing the 2013 HTC One several months after its competitors – Verizon is about to redeem itself in a huge way. A trusted source has confirmed to us that the all new HTC One will go on sale in the US starting at 1PM EST on March 25th. We’d love to tell you that you’ll be able to walk into an AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint retail store to fondle or purchase the all new HTC One, but Verizon will be the only major service provider in the US to sell the all new HTC One on March 25. Our source tells us that Verizon will be selling the phone “exclusively for a couple of weeks” – putting the global launch timeline in sync with previous rumors which say the device will be hitting 110 global markets “two weeks after the 25th.”
Our source was not able to confirm Verizon’s pricing for the all new HTC One, but since the suggested retail price for the unlocked phone is set at $600, it’s safe to assume that you will be able to buy the all new HTC One from Verizon for $199.99 with a new two-year contract.
