    Seconded. I hope they make a global version. I would really love to get my hands on one. Else I have to order one through eBay and loose 4G/LTE in the Netherlands like on my 928. But I'm glad Verizon is GSM unlocked :)

    No thanks, Nokia for me. Too many fails for HTC.

    I have a bad taste in my mouth from the HTC Trophy and numerous failing loud speakers. I had mine fail under less than normal use 5 times, until I upgraded to the Lumia 521 and 925. I'll stay away from HTC, on any platform.

    I'd first W8 for it, but I intend on hanging onto my 920 though.

    I would very much like to get a new HTC. All my smartphones so far were HTCs: the Magic, Desire and 8X. Beautiful phones and they never failed me.

    Will def hold off on my upgrade to give it a look. If it's got the right specs and looks like the M8, it will be tough to say no to that.

    I'll W8 and see what the first reviews say about it. I'm kinda a Nokia guy myself, but they seem to have become a little complacent as the #1 WP manufacturer. I'd like to see some competition again.

    When WP8 came out, the 920 won a lot of reviews, but eventually the 8X became a more attractive daily driver for those who could grab either in the morning (including or own WPC guy). I still get asked about mine 1-1/2 years into the hardware cycle. I say to W8 and see what's coming. I just hope it doesn't end up as a carrier exclusive!!

    The HTC M8 equivalent would be a beast! Nokias are supposed to be well built and I'm a fan of them (my sig) but this one has been drooling me all over...

    I don't want to buy another HTC product because of negative personal experience; but I do hope it ends up being a great phone that gets then good sales.

    I may be if its basically the M8 with windows on it. the problem though is Im coming from a Rezoud and the battery life in it is just horrible because of the screen. HTCs have never been known for having great battery life....so this concerns me a bit. Plus I kind of need a new phone now, as my rezound is all but nearly unusable now.

    I love the M8 aesthetics. I think it's the best looking smartphone out there. Actually, I've always liked HTC hardware. I've just had consistently bad experiences with the software side of their devices.

    The first HTC device I owned had terrible graphics performance, despite coming with a decent GPU. It made no sense to me, until I discovered that HTC had refused to license the GPU driver from the SoC developer, so all graphics operations were rendered in software. HTC listed the SoC on their spec sheets, but nowhere did they mention that half of that SoC had been disabled, despite it being a rather expensive device. This was the first time I felt HTC cut too many software costs without being upfront about it. I had two more similar experiences, after which I decided HTC wouldn't be getting any more of my money.

    I'd much prefer a device from Microsoft/Nokia, but right now I find their hardware choices very disappointing. If the W8 came out now I'd be very tempted.

    So HTC can forget it exists 15 minutes after it drops? No thanks.

    Since Sprint doesn't carry Nokia phones, I would take this phone in a second if Sprint decides to sell it.

    Yeah that could be a problem. Coming from android this never concerned me because the community was always there for upgrades. I don't think Ive ever actually taken an OTA upgrade from my carrier or manufacturer.

    Yes. The original leak was from evleaks which is often accurate:



    It doesn't say that this is the WP8.1 version of the HTC M8 however. That is just speculation.

    If it resembles the One M8 in terms of design and construction it would certainly be tempting, but knowing HTC it would probably exclude wireless charging and that is an important factor for me.

    I understand no date has been set for the release as it's just speculation at this point. That said, could anyone wager a guess as to when they think it may arrive? I ask because I just shattered my screen on my Icon. No insurance, SOL I know. Beyond the camera on the Icon I was a bit underwhelmed (hard for me to admit as I'm an avid supporter of WP. Because my Icon is now almost unusable I may get the HTC M8. But, if the W8 comes out within the next month or so I would wait out; guessing that's wishful thinking, though. Thanks in advance for any help.
