I was actually shocked that Verizon didn't announce the HTC One yesterday. Every tech writer out there had written that it was probably going to happen. It still might, but Verizon wasn't going to announce the HTC One the day before the Galaxy S4 came out on their network. Maybe they also felt that HTC could not supply enough phones to meet their demand. With a few modifications to Sense and button placement, the One could be a great piece of hardware. But do consumers buy a great phone with no backup support from a company that is losing key executives and is kind of floundering? I guess we'll find out in a few months.
