Verizon's Got a Brand New ... Phone

Sunday - 3/24/2013, 7:30am  ET

HTC lovers have been buzzing over the company's newest phone offering, the HTC One. However, one big name was missing from the phone's announcement last month: Verizon . This was especially odd, considering that the phone would be available on three of its biggest competitors: AT&T, Sprint Nextel, and T-Mobile.

Now, HTC is amending its earlier statement to include the telecom powerhouse as one of its newest carriers for the One. Verizon subscribers are still not out of the woods yet, however, because they'll be two months later than the other carriers to take advantage of the new phone.  

What's going on here? Does HTC have it in for Verizon, or is this simply a mistake? Fool contributor Caroline Bennett takes a closer look in the following video.
