    I remember reading a spec sheet either here or another site that said it's running WP8.1.1, but the actual HTC spec page says WP8.1.

    Also, they are still releasing updates for WP8.1 Update 1, so I thought it wasn't at general availability anyway.

    Can anyone clear this up?

    WP 8.1.1 is not official version numbering, but i'm sure it comes with Update 1. Even their video shows off Live Folders.

    EDIT: Forgot the obvious, it needs Update 1 for the Dot View case to work.

    Yes, the HTC M8 is running WP8.1 Update 1. You may also call it WP8.1.1 or WP8.1 GDR1.

    Daniel Rubino who tested it should tell us the OS version.

    It is running "Windows Phone 8.1 Update", or "Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1".

    8.1.1 is a misnomer that some have picked up, same with GDR1, for those who insist on using old naming conventions.

    This Update enables covers like the Dot Cover, so of course it has it.

    What issues ? It's running beautifully on WP8 GDR3 and it's bound to get WP8.1 soon.

    Are you saying people shouldn't buy this just because it doesn't have access to WP8.1 GDR1 now, a preview build ? Wow, what a capital sin.

    HTC launches Advantage initiative that includes one free screen replacement | ZDNet

    Looks to be a free screen replacement, cloud storage, and updates or something.

    I admit that's amazing. Love the idea of a free screen replacement. Does that include the digitizer too?

    If you break the phone in any way that is a probable way, they will fix it.
