The HTC One M8 that was running on Android has proved to be quite a potent phone when it was launched second only to the Samsung Galaxy S5. Both of these phones are currently the kings of the Android market in terms of spec and price of course. Being one of HTC’s newest and most successful line of smartphones HTC decides that it should receive a Windows Phone treatment. Now this is not some HTC One M7 Windows Phone type of news that was just, well news. This is, according to HTC real and happening pretty soon. In fact the reports points to Microsoft approaching HTC for using the One M8 platform to go with Windows.
So other than branding and a few logo changes here and there, there is really no difference between the Android and the Windows version of the One M8. Even the manufacturing of both devices will be in the same factory line. Features on the One M8 that was on Android will also be featured on the One M8 for Windows like the dual cameras. There really is not much more to say about this device. The HTC One M8 on Android has been a great device, who knows what it could actually do with Windows Phone installed.
The only missing information from all these is its availability. The One M8 for Windows is now available in US from Verizon retailing for $600(RM1,920). What no one knows is that when this Windows Phone device will launch in any other country. For us our concern is when will it reach to Malaysian shores? We do not know yet but we are expecting it to arrive in at least a month or two time.
