It has now been five months since I started using the HTC One and I still think it is the best smartphone I have ever used. Verizon customers are finally going to get the chance to experience the One when it launches this Thursday, 22 August, Friday for $200. In addition, the HTC One Mini is coming to AT&T on Friday, 23 August, for $100 with a two-year agreement.

It's rare for me to use a phone for so long, but I am still discovering things to do with the One and it has never let me down. I love all the features found in HTC Sense 5 and am pleased to see that the Verizon model launches with Android 4.2.2 so you will get the extra Video Highlights themes, Instagram support on BlinkFeed, and more.

Sprint also now has an exclusive red HTC One for $199.99 with a current promotion of buy one, get one free going on.

My wife spent time with the HTC One Mini and fell in love with the smaller form factor. Unfortunately, only AT&T customers will get a chance to experience the HTC One Mini as another stupid exclusive limits consumer choice for this device. I don't know if this is a limited time offer or if we will see the Mini on other carriers. HTC did a great job getting the One on most major carriers, but the One Mini must not have caught the eye of the carriers.

The One Mini will sell for $100 with a two-year agreement and also launches with Android 4.2.2. It has a 1.4 GHz dual-cor processor, 4.3 inch display, 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, UltraPixel camera, and dual front facing stereo speakers. It is a mid-level smartphone coming in at the appropriate mid-level price with a premium design.

  • HTC One to Verizon on 22Aug???

    "We" deserve an official confirmation. Sales doesn't know anything about it. Is there anything officially posted from Verizon? Or is this just another hoax that has everyone fooled. Yes, it is posted all over the internet, but not from Verizon. It must be true if it's on the internet, right? Bon Jour!
    • HTC sent out the notice

      I received an email notification from HTC stating the 22 August date for the HTC One on Verizon.

    Funny to call a 4.3 inch display smartphone a "mini".
  • HTC One Verizon

    I am a Verizon family plan customer with 4 phones and an iPad, and I just want to say Verizon sucks! This delay, no confirmation, uninformed reps, and apparently limited colors and configurations AT FULL LIST PRICE is disrespectful.
