Verizon HTC One official

The day that many Verizon customers have (im)patiently been waiting for is nearly here. Verizon just announced that its version of the HTC One will officially launch online and in stores on Thursday, Aug. 22, for $199.99 with a two-year contract.

Originally introduced in February, the HTC One features a 4.7-inch 1080p display, 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, UltraPixel rear camera and Android Jelly Bean. Verizon's model will support the big red carrier's 4G LTE network.

Verizon's version of the HTC One may be arriving a few months after the device launched on other U.S. carriers, but it's still good to see that the phone is finally here. Not only does it mean that those folks that've been waiting for the device will finally have their patience rewarded, but the launch also brings the One to the largest carrier in the U.S. That's a big deal for HTC, a company that's run into its fair share of bumps in the road lately.

So, Verizon customers, now that we know exactly when your long-awaited One will be arriving and how much it'll cost when it does, will you be pulling the trigger on a unit of your own?

UPDATE: Verizon's Albert Aydin has shared more details on his carrier's flavor of the HTC One, confirming that the device will ship with 32GB of built-in storage and Android 4.2.2.
