It is no secret that the HTC One was coming out in a beautiful Blue Metallic color, but the big secret was which carrier was going to carry it – most colors are exclusive to a particular carrier, but which one?  When the photos below were leaked, everybody assumed the HTC One in Blue Metallic would be going to verizon, and why not, there it is in black and white and Blue Metallic.  Verizon is the last U.S. carrier to release the HTC One so we thought they may be selling the exciting color to attract some attention to themselves.
