As suspected, Verizon won’t be getting an HTC One device

There’s no beating around the bush; most of us on staff here at Android and Me love the HTC One series of devices. I had a chance this weekend to spend some hands-on time with the HTC One X from AT&T, and was completely blown away by both the look and build quality of the device.

At CTIA last week, Verizon Wireless announced the mid-range Droid Incredible 4G LTE by HTC. The Droid Incredible 4G LTE is not a One device, and HTC Spokesman Jeff Gordon indicated to Android Authority that Verizon “is not going to be carrying either of the HTC One devices currently announced.” Considering the HTC One V, One S, and One X devices have all been announced, Gordon’s remarks suggest these phones won’t be coming to Big Red’s network.

That’s not to say future HTC One (or, is it HTC Two?) devices won’t make their way to Verizon Wireless. It’s possible Verizon and HTC are working on a superphone to take Verizon’s network by storm later this year. We’ll continue to incessantly check our inboxes for a special invitation from Verizon or HTC, though we won’t hold our breath.

Were you hoping to see the HTC One series come to Verizon’s network? Does the Droid Incredible 4G LTE suffice for your HTC smartphone needs? Sound off below.
