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 Lumia Icon was also a Verizon Exclusive. The Lumia 930 is the global model.
This doesn’t mean there wont ever be a global version of the HTC One M8 running WP.
