Verizon had every opportunity to get the HTC One on launch but decided against it because they wanted to continue to promote their Droid lineup like the Droid DNA and Droid Incredible 4g. Verizon is so hell bent on controlling every damn thing. In the end it ended up biting them in the ass because the HTC One is HTC's best selling smart phone to date. Thats the only reason why Verizon is trying to get the phone on their network.

Verizon has to realize that phone manufacturers are moving away from making devices that are exclusive to carriers. Its better for the device manufacturers to make a few models that are on all of the carriers. That way they can put money for promotion towards a few devices instead of splitting their promotion efforts between a plethora of devices on several different carriers. Also it brings down production costs.....

Thats why Samsung is so successful. They took a page out of Apple's book. They narrowed their focus and put a ton promotion for the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note II. They created a brand within their brand.
