We'll be the first to say that we wish HTC would take its new One (M8) Android device and slap Windows Phone on it. It's a truly beautiful smartphone, just read Android Central's in-depth review of the device to get an idea how it looks. We ran a quick poll yesterday asking if you would like to see a Windows Phone version, but rumors are suggesting one may be in the works.
According to a report over on WPDang, which has a fairly solid track record for rumors and reporting, HTC is indeed planning to at least use some elements of the new Android flagship for an upcoming device running Windows Phone 8.1. Sources suggest that the new Windows Phone will share some of the technology and design of the HTC One (M8).
As a recap, the HTC One sports a 1080p LCD3 display (5-inches), Snapdragon 801 CPU, 2GB RAM and either 16GB or 32GB internal storage. Even though this is rumor, we can definitely see this happening and have no reason to question the source. Still, take with some salt and we'll look to update you all should we learn of anything else.
Microsoft has been attempting to bring Android hardware vendors and Windows Phone closer together with a number of measures. We could see a HTC One-type product running Windows Phone and believe it would be welcomed by the community as a new breath of fresh air, especially with Windows Phone 8.1 loaded.
