T-Mobile announces April 11th release date for the new HTC One (M8)
T-Mobile does not subsidize the price of a new handset, which eliminates the need to handcuff you for two years. The all new HTC One (M8) is being offered starting on April 11th for $0 down and 24 monthly installment payments of $26.50.That mans that after all is said and done, you are paying $636 for HTC's new flagship model.
While T-Mobile won't be releasing the all new HTC One (M8) until April 11th, that is also the date when the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be launched in 150 countries. If you are a T-Mobile customer, you might need to make a very difficult decision on that day.

The Un-carrier also announced that T-Mobile will be the only place to get your hands on the new HTC One (M8) with no annual service contract, no overages, no upgrade wait, no hidden device costs, and with the world as your network at no additional cost.
“Our friends at HTC have nailed it again,” said Jason Young, senior vice president of Marketing, T-Mobile. “The all-new HTC One (M8) has the brainpower of a true superphone together with stunning hardware design, which combined with T-Mobile’s Un-carrier freedom on America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network, equals an enviable package.”
Beyond the benefits of T-Mobile’s industry-rocking Un-carrier services and value, the all-new HTC One (M8) comes packed with state-of-the-art features, including T-Mobile’s Wi-Fi Calling and HD Voice, that build on the company’s tradition of mobile innovations.
Created from a beautiful high-quality metal unibody, the new HTC One (M8)’s curves and balance make it a pleasure to hold and use, while the 5-inch screen makes navigating its many features feel second nature.

Difficult decision ?! Yes, if you are blind and missing half a brain. M8 is not perfect.. but common nothing and no spec can't take the ugliness away from the S5.

Picked mine up at Verizon yesterday. It was an amazing experience getting this the same day AT VERIZON! They never get things early.

People at T-mobile forums are throwing a shiat fit about this, yikes. Glad I stick with Sammy series, I just jumped ship from AT&T to T-mobile earlier this month for a Note 3, plenty of pink coverage in Seattle

Against the S5? M8 hands down. The only edge the S5 has against this beast is the camera and the IP certification. Against the Z2? That's a different story.

I got a Verizon M8 yesterday and the camera is very underrated. I think I'm like the majority of people who use the camera for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, emailing/messaging pics to friends, etc. I maybe print a dozen (maybe) pics a year. For those purposes, the M8's camera is outstanding.

I agree, I've already taken excellent shots with it, both indoors and out.

Thats smart, release it the same day so they can have better sales that day compared to other stores and companies.
