    If the latest reports are true, then it appears Verizon will be skipping the HTC One (aka M7). Supposedly, the new flagship from HTC will launch in Europe March 8th, and will be coming only to AT&T, T-Mobile & Sprint in the U.S. on March 22nd. It's possible that the device might come to Verizon in the future with a different name, but it's just as possible the phone was skipped by Big Red because they don't want another HTC device to compete with their HTC Droid DNA. This same report supposedly confirms that some of the previously leaked pics are legitimate (posted above).

    Some additional details were presented along with this news. Here's a quote with the details,

    Most of us here at HQ are unsurprised by this news, but are a bit saddened, nonetheless. How many of our members are disappointed that the phone is likely not coming to Verizon?

    Pretty sure its obvious by now, Verizon loves Motorola over all others. They only carry Samsung devices because of their overwhelming love for the all mighty dollar.

    I went to a corporate store a few days ago and was talking to one of the sales women on the floor and I mentioned how much I loved the droid DNA screen and the first thing she said was,

    "the lack of SD is why so many return it" I couldn't help but laugh and tell her that was the next thing I was going to say. I've got a 64gb sd card... don't try to take it away from me.

    This is the same reason HTC is not bringing their phone to Verizon, since Verizon screwed them big time, by making them dump down the storage space "so they can sell their cloud". HTC has been screwed by Verizon a few times already, I am sure it has left a sour taste in their mouth. Verizon is doing the same thing lately to their customer base "share your money with us plans", like the saying goes, what goes up must come down, sooner or later all this nonsense will bite Verizon in the rear end.

    I hope to see VZW get nailed in the pocket and stocks fall when they start pulling SD cards from there entire lineup.

    The Droid DNA is still new. It wouldnt make sense for them to do this. I'm surprised they did it with Motorola phones.

    So.....some of yall want them to do with HTC what some of yall complain Motorola do? Has anyone looked at the specs between the 2? They are so close....you might as well call the One the DNA+

    Sorry but the DNA is a total failure in my book, only thing going for it is the high resolution screen, the two main features in a smartphone are storage and removable battery, on the storage part the DNA with only eleven gigs of usable storage is a total failure, and not to able to swap a fresh battery when you are running low and not near charging pretty is also a big letdown.

    Oh I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooo sorry I want a droid dna with an sd card and larger internal memory.

    This is nothing like what Motorola did so get your facts straight.

    Re: [Rumor] Verizon Skipping the HTC (M7)

    Yeah I gotta agree. The puny storage, no SD card support and a weak non-removable battery are deal breakers for me. I'm a longtime HTC fan and I wanted the DNA so bad but I gotta have those things.

    Glad I didn't wait for the M7 and went ahead and upgraded to my beloved Note 2 . I was kinda worried I was making a mistake by not waiting another couple weeks but now I see it's fate and I was meant to own this Note. :D

    And you are telling me that doesnt qualify it to be the DNA+? Also a slight bump in ppi, and cpu speed. DNA just came out a few months ago. Moto threw in a bigger battery, slight bump in cpu speed, change screens from the Bionic to the RAZR to the RAZR Maxx, from Sept 2011 to Jan 012. How would this not be the same thing if it came to Verizon? Its memory instead of what Moto did.

    When did this become the 2 main features in a smartphone?

    The problem is Verizon had the Droid Incredible 4G .....then the DNA. The Incredible 4G was a weaker One X. They get the DNA...and the M7 is around the corner. Verizon should've either got phones earlier, better versions earlier...or just waited.

    Just like for us phone buyers.....they cant wait forever. And they chose "weaker" phones. It is what it is. If they get the One now.....it was waste to get the DNA. That's also why I said I'm surprised they're not....they did it with Motorola.

    Then release it as the dna+ I'm just tired of Verizon dragging their feet. If they didn't have the best coverage and I wasn't unlimited and grandfathered in I'd leave

    Thankfully I got the gn2 and I'm loving it just waiting for the cruzer lite case I ordered. If the xperia z comes to Verizon I'll check it out. I'll probably never be able to settle for smaller than 4.8 ever again

    In my opinion 5 inches is too big unless we are talking about phablets. The HTC M7/ One, will have many enhancements over the DNA. The camera, screen 468 ppi, and a larger battery, memory, and a faster processor. It sucks Verizon will not be getting this phone. I guess I may have to switch to AT&T, or wait for the Motorola X phone, if my incredible 2 will last that long.

    I like Motorola's Android devices. The interface is nice and they always have better devices

    You're probably right which drives me crazy. If HTC had gone with a bigger or at least removable battery and 32GB+ SD card support, it would be the best Droid phone on the market (well tied with my awesome Note 2 :D). I'm a high school drop out so maybe I'm not smart enough to understand HTC's vision but I know there is still a strong demand for battery life and storage and I don't get why HTC didn't know this or maybe they just didn't care.

    I've heard that Verizon nixed the SD card support but I can't understand why.

    It is called selling the cloud, which means more data consumption, which means more $ for the fat cats.
