    This probably won't come as a surprise to most of our readers, but according to a statement from a Verizon spokesperson, Jeff Gordon, the company will not be carrying any of the HTC One series phones. He said, “Verizon is not going to be carrying either of the HTC One devices currently announced." For Verizon customers that are also HTC fans, their only options on newer/newish high-end HTC smartphones will be the HTC Rezound and the HTC Incredible 4G LTE.

    With the way he worded his response, it's possible that Verizon may get some other version of the HTC One series in the future, but that is pure speculation. I wonder why Big Red chose to take a pass on the new flagship series from HTC. Share your theories in the thread.

    I have a feeling we're getting closer to another big Moto release. They've started dropping prices on the Razr and are passing on these HTC phones (that would compete directly with any new Moto release). Forgive me since I haven't been following religiously, but isn't a "Droid Fighter" coming out soon? And it's rumored to be the Razr Maxx HD? Or am I just off-base?

    Verizon passed because they pass on all high-end devices. It's sad that the Nexus is still the only device that was worth getting excited about since the OG Droid.

    Guess it's SGS3 or Moto HD.

    My upgrade is ready, I have the money but ya, I don't see a phone at Verizon worth getting. I'm holding out for the S3 or Journal. To be honest, I'm even tempted to go back to AT&T. The reception is great in my area so that isn't an issue for me. They have 3 gigs of data for $30 and I rarely use more than 2 gigs as it is now. I have wifi nearly everywhere I go.

    Yeah I knew the stupid Incredible would get in the way of the One X. This is what I fear: Verizon is more concerned about their "Droid" brand rather than getting the best possible phones available. I'm just afraid that Verizon will mess with the GS3.

    Meh...frankly, the lack of SD kinda made this phone a lot less appealing to me anyway.

    LOL...after installing the ICS leak on the Rezound, there is now nothing about the Galaxy Nexus that excites me anymore. ICS was the last thing I wanted on it.

    The OG Droid was better than the Nexus in some ways...it had expandable SD storage for one thing. And it was truly bloat free (not even Verizon apps on it).

    I'll give you expandable storage, but not even the OG was bloat free. It had Amazon MP3 and I believe Visual Voicemail.

    My Droid 1 had nothing I could not uninstall on it. it was a true virgin Android device. It had pre-installed crap, but nothing I could not remove.

    Then your argument is null, since the same can be said of the Nexus.
