Briefly: Verizon may buy Wind, HTC One Android 4.2.2 update pulled
According to reports, US wireless carrier Verizon is investigating the purchase of Canadian cellphone carrier Wind Mobile. One source noted by Toronto's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287880==http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/verizon-eyes-wireless-entry-as-ottawa-aims-to-salvage-competition/article12595163/" rel='nofollow'><em>The Globe</em></a> says that Verizon is "definitely taking a hard look right now." AT&T, Vodafone, and the Telenor Group of Norway are all potential suitors, according to sources for the Globe. The Canadian government is stalling or blocking VimpelCom's attempt to sell its share in Wind at auction, with a seeking price of more than $500 million. VimpleCom's CEO claims that it will take a billion-dollar investment in Wind to have the infrastructure to turn a profit.<br />
