HTC One (M8) for Windows to be also available from Sprint and T-Mobile?

HTC One (M8) for Windows to be also available from Sprint and T-Mobile?
Just a week ago, HTC unveiled the Windows Phone version of its flagship – the HTC One (M8) for Windows. As we already said, there is no difference between the two devices, save for the OS and the purportedly better battery life of its Windows Phone iteration. The phone is already exclusively available from Verizon. AT&T also announced that it will be selling the device later in 2014. Okay, the two largest US carriers are well aboard now, but what about the other representatives of the quartet, T-Mobile and Sprint?

According to @upleaks, often regarded as the successor to the infamous @evleaks, the HTC One (M8) for Windows will also be eventually available from T-Mobile, too. As far as Sprint is concerned, another speculation has it that the third-largest carrier will be also offering HTC's WP 8.1 flagship device. As usual, one should be employing the “wait-and-see” principle when it comes to such rumors. However, if they get to hold water and the HTC One (M8) for Windows arrives at T-Mobile and Sprint, the device will become the first Windows Phone flagship that is available from all major US carriers.

Are you a T-Mobile or a Sprint subscriber? Would you get the HTC One (M8) for Windows if your carrier offered it? Share your thoughts with us!

Good to see more carriers getting on board. A great phone from HTC with a great OS. Hope Samsung can release a high end WP worldwide so I can jump boat completely from Android to WP !

Please be careful about what you say. The trolls are coming now.

If you like the OS, then I would recommend a Lumia 1520 or 930, both are great devices from a great manufacturer.

YES! Except he'd have to get the unlocked Lumia 1520.3 if he's on T-Mobile... and no Lumia 930 (unless it is unlocked as well.)

I like the One M8 WP. It's fast, fluid and a bit more ergonomic than those devices. I also find the speakers to be very useful for ringers and alarms (basing this off a Lumia Icon and my M8 Android). What surprised me is the maps app on the phone. It's just as good as Google Maps on my M8 and the WP store has a transit status app as well. I don't remember needing to download any more apps for WP when I briefly had the Nokia Lumia Icon.

As a 1020 owner, the camera would be the only legitimate drawback for me. Worth everything it has going for it though including expandable memory in a premium body, it were to become available for T-Mobile I would seriously consider it for my next phone. That is if all the Lumia 830 leaks turn out to be false.

Camera is fine and sharp provided you don't need to zoom in and crop the photo. The depth camera does make photos quite fun as well. Still I would like a larger sensor, a minor increase in MP count (any more would introduce noise), and better algorithms because it does have a slight tendency to blow out really bright lights unless you dial in the settings. It's not much worse than other phones really. Here's hoping that HTC makes the new One available for both ecosystems (that butterfly J thing).

This would be my first Windows Phone since 2008. I would buy this. I'm not a huge HTC fan, only reason I didn't buy the HTC One M8 is because I don't like their crap sense but I would buy the WP version of this.

Some good news... ANY good news.... For WP users is welcome. I am beginning to feel as though MS and WP just needs to survive 2014 and hang on to any promising news we can. WP 8.1 has been well received, and the HTC ONE is a potential top end device. I will take all 4 carriers having it as a good thing.
