Verizon promo for the all new HTC One suggests devices will be in stores on March 25 -
Verizon may have been the last major service provider on the planet to start selling the 2013 HTC One, but the company’s in-store promotional material suggests things will be a little different this time around. A Verizon employee has posted a picture of a box featuring the all new HTC One which appears to be mounted to a retail display. The image depicts the phone with the perfected flip case with a message reading “Get ready to hit refresh. 3.25 at 1PM ET.”
The Verizon employee claims that the store will soon be receiving a demo unit of the all new HTC One as well. Based on the message on the all new HTC One, there are two possibilities:
- The all new HTC One demo unit will go on display at 1PM ET on March 25
- The all new HTC One demo unit will go on display at 1PM ET on March 25, accompanied with a retail launch
Since Carephone Warehouse has announced that it will start selling the all new HTC One immediately following the launch event in London, it is conceivable that Verizon has worked out a similar deal with HTC here in the US. But we have our doubts. We’re expecting the all new HTC One to show up in stores across Europe sometime next week, but the US launch will most likely not pick off until the first week of April.
What’s your take on the retail launch for the all new HTC One? Do you think HTC will surprise us all with a blitz retail launch at service providers here in the US?
