HTC ONE VERIZON REALEASE

My contracts ben up at Verizon for the past 3 months. I haven't ' gotten a contract with a new phone because i'm waiting for the One to come out to Verizon. I am becoming increasingly impatient. Rumour has it (In Adele's Voice) Is that The HTC One is supposed to be released August 1st but as that day comes closer I believe more and more that this rumor is untrue. After all it's July 30th as of this post, and Verizon has said nothing. So I ask you, Know any other rumors? Should I leave Verizon and just got to Sprint or something? or should I just wait it out?
