According to one of our most trusted sources, HTC’s launch partners for the M7 include T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T. While we have seen evidence which suggests the HTC M7 is also heading to Verizon, our source claims that big red’s launch of the flagship Android device from HTC will be delayed. The reason for the delay is unknown, but Verizon is currently backing the HTC Droid DNA with a huge marketing campaign, so we doubt they would want to push it to the side to promote a device which isn’t much different from the DNA.
There are no new details available regarding the HTC M7′s retail availability in the U.S. market, but we’re hoping we won’t have to wait too long since the device is rumored to go on sale in Europe on March 8th. HTC’s February 19th press event is only two and a half weeks away, so we suspect we’ll be getting all of the official HTC M7 launch details then.
What are your thoughts on Verizon’s delayed launch of the HTC M7? Do you think they simply want to put some distance between the M7 and the DNA or do you think they are making some tweaks of their own like they did the HTC 8X?
