Verizon introduces the HTC One (M8) for Windows
The HTC One has proven itself to be a worthy flagship device since it rolled out last year, and this year, we have seen even more improvements made to the smartphone, where it was introduced as the HTC One (M8). Picking up a fair number of positive reviews ever since it was released, the HTC One (M8) happened to be an Android powered device. It looks as though HTC has something else up their sleeves, and this would be to deliver a flagship smartphone, for the first time ever in the industry, to come in two different operating system flavors – Android and Windows Phone, with the latter being known as the HTC One (M8) for Windows.
As you can tell by the name of the device itself, everything about it ought to be the same as that of the vanilla HTC One (M8), other that the fact that this Verizon-bound device will run on the Windows Phone platform. This means one should expect to see the very same stunning, award-winning design as well as the most recent Windows Phone software. Your hands will definitely feel comfortable with its all metal unibody design as well as elegantly curved back that matches your hand’s contours.
Other unique experiences that were once the domain of the original HTC One (M8) can also be found here, and these include HTC BlinkFeed, HTC BoomSound, Duo Camera with UltraPixel, Video Highlights, a 5MP wide-angle front-facing camera that is great for selfies, as well as support for the HTC Dot View case.
With Windows Phone 8.1 running underneath the hood, you will also be able to enjoy the “company” of Cortana, which is Windows Phone’s truly personal digital assistant, as she makes her debut on HTC. Those who are interested will be able to pick up the HTC One (M8) for Windows for $99.99 with a new two-year contract from Verizon, or $29.99 per month on Verizon Edge.
