On-screen buttons? is this new? (not being sarcastic,I just don't know if there's another WP with on-screen buttons, and if there is, I never knew!)

Well, the Nokia Lumia 630 and 530 has on-screen buttons as well.

Thank you for that. I guess I need to do my homework

Exactly same hardware, XDA devs can port WP 8.1 on Android handset I guess if HTC releases RUU for WP.

It won't matter since they won't be selling tons of these anyway.

Who gives a dime! I will be buying it, and I'm sure many TRUE WP fans will be buying it as well. It's not that the Android version is selling like hot cakes!

I agree with you. I'm sure some true WP fans will buy it too, especially if they like Metal or they were a fan of HTC phones (let's say... from an HTC 8x user)

How is $600 a good price?
Edge Pricing: $30 x 20 payments = $600.

Verizon exclusive is not cool. It's just gonna hamper the success of this device.
12. NokiaFTW (Posts: 2058; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
I agree. Since HTC has a good footing with most US carriers, this phone should have been released on all major carriers.

This exclusive thing could be another way for companies to be trying to Kill Windows Phone 8/8.1 cause all they're doing is shooting it and themselves in the foot.

I hate exclusives. They will never sell if you pit it on only one carrier. But a beautiful device on a Windows platform.

Great design and great specs. Your move Nokia.
But it seems to me that HTC didn't sell enough of M8 so some remained in storages and simply changed the OS to sell those remains. Hence Verizon exclusivity.
Still it's too funny and desperate to be true but with their recent financial reports maybe it's true.
Heck, who gives a damn. Maybe HTC cam flourish in Windows Phone like the old days.
At least so far this is the definitive phone for WP 8.1
