HTC sends out invitations for August 19th event; is the Windows Phone 8.1 HTC One (M8) coming?
HTC has sent out invitations to an event that will be taking place on August 19th in New York City. Speculation about what could be unveiled by the manufacturer, ranges from a smartwatch to a Nexus 8 tablet. And while both are logical possibilities, there is one specific device that has been tipped to launch around the same date specified on the invite.

On Monday, we told you that online Microsoft Stores are rumored to be launching a Windows Phone 8.1 version of the HTC One (M8) on August 21st. That is just two days away from the event being promoted by the invitation. So far, Verizon is the only carrier rumored to be offering this model.

If we had to take a guess, we could see the Windows Phone 8.1 powered HTC One (M8) unwrapped on August 19th, with the handset getting released on August 21st,. The unit could be available off-contract for $610, and priced at $199.99 with a signed two-year pact.
