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. The HTC One M8 for Windows is an exclusive device for U.S. carrier Verizon.
A 5-inch 1080p display greets you up front on the HTC One M8 for Windows and packs a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with 2 GB of RAM. Additional specs include 32 GB of onboard storage and one expansion card slot that supports microSD cards up to 128 GB in size. Plus you get 15 GB of Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage included with Windows Phone 8.1.
The HTC One (M8) for Windows will be available today, starting at noon EDT online. Physical Verizon stores will carry it starting tomorrow. It will be available on Verizon for a promo price of $99.99 on a new two-year contract or $29.99 per month on Verizon Edge.
