It has already been confirmed that Carphone Warehouse will put the All New HTC One on sale minutes after the UK press event wraps next Tuesday. New information makes it incredibly likely that Verizon Wireless will do the same in the US market.
Droid-Life, a website with pinpoint accuracy when it comes to Verizon rumors, posted yesterday that the HTC One would go on sale as soon as the press event wraps. Now signage and demo units have started arriving to stores, leading employees to leak information about the upcoming launch. The signs say "Get ready to hit refresh 3:25 at 1PM ET" and point to the 2014 model of the HTC One going on sale at that time.
HTC is eager to release the HTC One following an unforeseen delay in releasing the 2013 model that caused the phone to miss out on sales because of limited supplies and the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S 4. With the S5 set to debut in three weeks, HTC probably wants to strike while the hype is still fresh.source: Droid-Life
