Yesterday we shared a story discussing the excellent audio quality and battery life results of the new HTC One smartphone. (Here's a link to that article.) In that article we also included an update about a Bluetooth certification hinting that the device would be coming to Verizon after-all. Today we have a new bit of intel from AllThingsD that seems to confirm this. In fact, according tho their source, the HTC One is definitely coming to Big Red, but will simply be a month or two late to the party due to Verizon's overly stringent testing process for new devices. Here's a quote with more of the details,

However, Verizon will also carry the high-end Android device, according to a source familiar with the situation. Its launch at Verizon, though, will trail the other U.S. carriers by a month or two as it winds its way through the testing process.

HTC and Verizon representatives did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The eventual launch at Verizon means that all four major carriers will be carrying the One, allowing the product to fulfill a key objective for the struggling phone maker.

When HTC announced the first One models in 2012, the goal was to create a single flagship line that would help define HTC’s image in the minds of consumers. The first One series, though, was actually three distinct phones — the One X, One V and One S.

What’s more, Sprint and Verizon opted to carry their own high-end HTC models rather than any of the three Ones.

This year, though, HTC has managed to get all four carriers to support the One. That should help the company, which is seeking to boost its visibility and better compete against high-end rivals, particularly Apple and Samsung.
As you can see, this also seems to suggest that Verizon might actually sell the device with its original name (although it's also possible they might jam the word Droid in there somewhere. Would you get behind an HTC Droid One?
