While customers of Verizon, AT&T and Sprint have been able to purchase the all new HTC One (M8) shortly after the phone was unveiled on Tuesday, T-Mobile customers were not so lucky. But the nation's fourth largest carrier has announced today, that the eagerly awaited sequel to the HTC One will be available starting on April 11th. T-Mobile customers will be happy to know that the handset comes out of the box with some of the mobile operator's features including HD Voice and Wi-Fi calling.
T-Mobile does not subsidize the price of a new handset, which eliminates the need to handcuff you for two years. The all new HTC One (M8) is being offered starting on April 11th for $0 down and 24 monthly installment payments of $26.50.That mans that after all is said and done, you are paying $636 for HTC's new flagship model.

While T-Mobile won't be releasing the all new HTC One (M8) until April 11th, that is also the date when the Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to be launched in 150 countries. If you are a T-Mobile customer, you might need to make a very difficult decision on that day.

People at T-mobile forums are throwing a shiat fit about this, yikes. Glad I stick with Sammy series, I just jumped ship from AT&T to T-mobile earlier this month for a Note 3, plenty of pink coverage in Seattle
I got a Verizon M8 yesterday and the camera is very underrated. I think I'm like the majority of people who use the camera for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, emailing/messaging pics to friends, etc. I maybe print a dozen (maybe) pics a year. For those purposes, the M8's camera is outstanding.
