Don’t Believe Everything You Read on Twitter: Verizon Is So Getting HTC One

One of the challenges of having the skinny on things is that sometimes even the official folks aren’t always in the know.

I’m assured that’s the case with last week’s scoop that Verizon also plans to carry the HTC One.

Someone at HTC took to its official U.S. Twitter account to say that Verizon wasn’t going to have the high-end Android phone, and instead directed customers to the currently shipping Droid DNA by HTC.

“The HTC One will not be available on the Verizon network, but have you seen the awesome #DROIDDNA?” reads the tweet, which was re-posted at Ubergizmo and other tech sites.

However, that tweet itself has now been pulled down.

As we said, Verizon is getting the HTC One, but it won’t be for a little while. Expect Verizon to start shipping the HTC One about one to two months after the first U.S. carrier starts shipping the device.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
