The HTC One, as nice of a phone as it may be, still hasn’t arrived on Verizon Wireless quite yet. It was first supposed to arrive on Big Red on August 1st, then its release was delayed to August 15th, and now according to a PhoneArena tipster it’s being pushed back again until August 29th.
Apparently, Verizon will be getting a special treat though. It turns out that the rumors are almost certainly true at this point that the carrier will sell the HTC One in an additional blue color. The blue will be exclusively sold on Verizon, but the other colors will be available there as well. The image above is the leaked blue HTC One from @evleaks. It seems like a bit of a dull color though, personally I would have preferred an electric blue shade.
It’s probably a bad move to continue delaying this phone for Verizon especially since its been available on other carriers for a while. It’s bad for Verizon and it’s also bad for HTC because people growing impatient will either just buy the HTC One on a different carrier or simply buy a different phone altogether. Do you think the blue color makes up for the delays?
