Verizon to get HTC One (W8) for Windows Phone on August 21

450

Reports that HTC would be reconfiguring their popular Android based One M8 for Windows Phone have been circulating for months with Verizon as the flag bearer, but details of the device – and release – are now coming into focus. Tonight, Engadget is reporting that the name of the phone is called "One (M8) for Windows," which is a little awkward, although if you drop the M8 it has a nice ring to it.

Engadget reports that they phone should launch by on "Verizon during the third quarter, or no later than the end of September" although our sources tell us that Microsoft Stores have a planning date of August 20 with a launch on the 21st. The off-contract, full price of the phone is listed at $610 with on-contract price most likely nearing $199. The name is also confirmed as "One (M8) for Windows" according to documents we have seen.

WPCentral gets its colors back with our latest website update

116

Late last week, Windows Phone Central had a nice little refresh to our website. The new header to the site has a more modern appearance, is dynamic (try clicking into a story and watch it change topics), and it features more of our guides and super pages, like our Windows Phone 8.1 Update Tracker for quick access.

The one downside to the deployment was the color scheme was not exactly _something many of us wanted. Of course, I mentioned we would be changing it soon and sure enough, our hardworking developers and designers have brought back our familiar magenta, and cyan colors from days past. Hooray! Therefore, you get those new features _and the accustomed colors too. Later, we can still look to add custom themes for registered members.

Fitbit for Windows Phone 8.1 is here

Starting today, Fitbit is announcing the availability of their official app for Windows Phone 8.1. Fitbit is the standard for wearable fitness tracking devices with their One, Flex and Force trackers, in addition to their Aria fitness scale. The new Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1 finally lets those who leverage Fitbit technology to sync their data on the go just using their Windows Phone. Fitbit keeps track of the progress of friends, steps taken, distance traveled, floor climbed, weight, calorie intake, and full user history.

Windows Phone Central first reported movement on the Fitbit app for Windows Phone back in December when the company sought to hire a developer for the project. Fast forward six months later and the app is here. From a gorgeous design that embraces the Modern UI to the Live Tile to the speed, the Fitbit app for Windows Phone 8.1 is well worth the wait.

Let's check it out in our video review!
