Unless you're just planning on browsing the web, these two tablets are cut from completely different bits of cloth.

Verizon HTC One prepares for civil war: here’s what it’s up against

If you're planning on picking up the Verizon iteration of the HTC One, you'll do well to know the battle said phone will be facing when it appears amongst the 4G LTE smartphone ranks of the big red carrier. What we've done here is to run down the rest of the devices that will be carried by Verizon at the time the HTC One will be released (likely August 1st) [UPDATE: Now more likely August 15th], along with reviews if we've got them (if they're on the market already, that is), or connections to information on potential specifications if they're not.
