As expected, HTC has just announced a new smartphone with Windows Phone called the HTC One M8 for Windows. The new device is the same as the HTC One M8 with Android, albeit it comes with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 preinstalled.

Sounds great, especially since it may be possible to dual boot or switch operating systems once the XDA crowd gets its hands on this thing. But then...

The HTC One M8 for Windows is an exclusive device for U.S. carrier Verizon.

Yeah. Good luck, with that.

The VZW website must be in error, HTC's website shows a 10% improvement in battery life with Windows Phone.

Still, pretty good. Just not dramatically good like WMPowerUser (and really, don't read them, they're like a fucking tabloid) claims.

That, and Android L brings tangible battery life improvements (much like WP 8.1 U1 did). So good news all around.
