Samsung Galaxy Note Edge and HTC One (M8) for Windows expected to be launched by T-Mobile in the coming weeks
While all major US mobile carriers confirmed that they’d sell the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge at some point, there’s no official word on exactly when the handset will be available. Luckily, it seems that we now know when T-Mobile is planning to launch its Note Edge.

According to a document revealed by Windows Central, the Galaxy Note Edge will land at T-Mobile on November 14, thus in about two weeks. Before that, on November 9, the magenta carrier should start selling the HTC One (M8) for Windows - which is currently available only on Verizon Wireless. 

While we don’t know how much T-Mobile will ask for the two handsets, they will probably not be affordable, since both are offering high-end specs (with an obvious plus for the Note Edge, which is the newer device among the two).

HTC One (M8) for Windows isn’t different, specs-wise, from the One (M8) that runs Android. You can find out more about the handset - which, by the way, runs Windows Phone 8.1 - by reading our review of it here.

As for the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, this is a unique smartphone that features a curved display on one side, in addition to a 5.6-inch Super AMOLED screen with 1440 x 2560 pixels. At the moment, the Note Edge is available only in South Korea and Japan.

Are you planning to buy any of these two handsets?

YES THE M8 WITH WP. My 810 broke and I need a new phone desperately. I bought a 530 just to get me by, and it is HORRIBLE. Now I am ecstatic. I have been waiting, and it is such a nice phone.

LOL not that the 530 is horrible (heck I went from a Lumia 925 to a Lumia 521 and it was OK)... but not as comfortable. I am really excited to see a new high end device from WP on Tmobile. It has been way overdue. Hope it continues with other models (Lumia 735, 830... Perhaps a Lumia 935, 1030, 1530?!)

I agree. We need more high end models in general. Microsoft can`t be the only quality OEM. I really want a sony phone, but who knows when that will happen

Sony needs to make a z3 wp. then wp needs a native google keep and drive app. Then im switching.

If Sony is barely selling devices on Android, there's absolutely no chance it would make it to WP.

That sucks though i was all Android OEMs made WP versions of their Android counterparts. WP is a solid OS all it needs is the support. I'm tired of the Android/iOS big boys duopoly, we need more choices.

This is true, i'd just like the choice. They run on the same hardware, and the OS is updated through MS so maintaining it should be minimal..

M8 for Windows is by far the best looking WP out there right now. Nice to see it available to more than just Verizon.

Might snatch a HTC One M8 for Windows... Just to see how HTC has kept up with the times... There was a time where I LOVED HTC [Touch Pro II, Trophy, DROID Eris, 8X], but I am very happy with Nokia/Microsoft... If I do go for this model it is ONLY because Nokia/Microsoft has not released a new Lumia on Tmobile (since the ever impressive Lumia 925 - IT CAN STILL COMPETE WITH THE BEST OF 'EM). Although I am quite content with my Nexus 5 for now.

Florin, there's a typo..the screen resolution u mentioned shows a weird resolution :p.. And I suppose, u should also include the edge screen resolution and make it 1600x2560

Note Edge looks like a ground breaking innovation to me.

Both should make some sales on T-Mobile whose users always wish for more top end choices. I have had some bad experinces with HTC, but that One for Windows is tempting for a WP user. And the Edge? Heck, I love it when a manufacturer takes a design risk. Not to mention it just looks kinda fun. T-Mobile tends to market itself to those on a budget, so I do not know how these will sell. But they both have the potential to surprise.
