HTC One M8 now available to buy at AT&T and Sprint locations, T-Mobile will have it tomorrow

Starting today, April 10, Verizon is no longer the sole US carrier to sell the HTC One M8 in brick and mortar stores. Customers can now also find the new HTC One at AT&T and Sprint locations. Of course, both AT&T and Sprint were already selling the One M8, but only online.
Just like Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are asking $199.99 on contract for the M8.
HTC says that its new flagship handset “has landed at retailers nationwide” - which likely means that locations like Best Buy and Walmart are selling it, too.
T-Mobile isn’t offering the HTC One M8 at the moment, but it will do it starting tomorrow, April 11 (for $0 down and $26.50 per month for 2 years).
The timing is perfect for HTC, because Samsung’s new Galaxy S5 is also going to be widely available in the US starting tomorrow. According to a previous report, HTC is happy with initial M8 sales. It remains to be seen how things will go from now on, though.

Still won't sell, the downsides are still going to remain and putting WP on it won't make them go away.

All the AT&T stores around here have had it since Friday at least. I bought mine on Saturday at the store in Towson, MD.

So much for having a lead time over the Galaxy S 5. Essentially 1 day or exact same day for most of the people in the US. I don't consider online only sales to be a great lead time. I'm a smartphone fanatic yet I'm even wary to buy a device without being able to touch it first.

I got my Sprint variant a week ago. I got it on line at Best Buy.com. Awesome phone!!!! No complaints what-so-ever. I was worried about the siaze but it really doesn't feel much bigger than my Evo 4g LTE that it replaced. The quality of the BoomSound speakers more than justify the increased size.
