HTC Droid DNA available for free from Verizon if you hurry

The HTC Droid DNA is now available for free on Verizon, for a limited time only. Could it pave the way for the HTC One?
May 15, 2013

The HTC Droid DNA is now available for free from Verizon, for a limited period of time only.

According to the carrier’s website, you can get a free HTC Droid DNA with a new two-year contract, as long as you follow some simple instructions. However, you must do so until May 21, as that’s when the offer is set to end.

First, you have to enter your email address on the promotion page, after which Verizon will send a promotional code to that e-mail address. Once you have received the code in question, head to the Verizon website and use the code upon checkout when getting a new two-year activation to get your free HTC Droid DNA.

The promotion does sound pretty good, and it gets you a device with some interesting specs, including a 5-inch 1080p display (441 ppi pixel density), Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset with 1.5GHz quad-core Krait processor, 2GB of RAM memory and 16GB of internal storage. The device also has an 8-megapixel rear camera, as well as a 2.1-megapixel front one.

While this is all very good news (especially if you were planning on getting a two-year contract anyway), it’s pretty normal to ask ourselves why would Verizon want to sell a lot of these devices in such a quick manner? You may remember the rumors about the HTC One being the device to replace the Droid DNA in the carrier’s lineup, and now the same speculation is made on various websites.

What do you think? Will Verizon carry the HTC One after all?
