HTC One (M8) with Windows Phone 8.1 announced by T-Mobile
T-Mobile today confirmed the rumors: the carrier will offer HTC’s One (M8) for Windows sometime soon - not long after the handset was released in the US by Verizon Wireless. According to T-Mobile, its One (M8) for Windows will be available to buy in time for the holidays. Pricing details haven’t been revealed, but it’s hard to believe that T-Mobile will ask more for the new handset than it does for the Android-based One (M8) - which has been available to buy since March.
Hardware-wise, the One (M8) for Windows is identical to the Android model. You get the same full-metal body, a 5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, HTC’s trademark BoomSound speakers, a quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 2600 mAh battery. A 4 MP UltraPixel camera sits on the back, while the front of the device houses a 5 MP camera. You can find out more about the smartphone by reading our HTC One (M8) for Windows review.
AT&T will also sell the One (M8) for Windows later this year. Sprint might do it, too, although this hasn’t been confirmed yet. All in all, it’s good to see a new high-end Windows Phone 8.1 handset that’s not a Lumia (sure enough, Lumias are great, but more options are always welcome).
