    Best news ever! I hope soon, T-Mobile and Sprint will announce it too, but as for me, I'm very happy. What is your take on the news? Take the poll too!

    I would hope to look forward to seeing it on T-Mobile sometime soon.

    Glad it's coming to more than Verizon! It'll definitely help the market share in the US! Now T-Mobile, please, please, say it'll come to your network too!

    Hopefully it will hit all four big carriers. HTC nearly pulled that off with the 8X if Sprint wasn't hemming and hawing about WP8.

    There is an advantage with HTC and LG coming in the fold (and we know LG has a phone on the horizon as a new one is showing up in ad tracking) in that both of them have very good carrier relations in the US. Nokia did not, so carrier whims mattered more.

    Big question will be the length of the Verizon window. If AT&T is already saying they are getting it, my guess would be Verizon will have the exclusive through the end of September. I know there's a big NFL campaign planned by Microsoft and Verizon to highlight the One for Windows. It may just be planned for the first month.

    I would think it is only one month. That would be strange that AT&T would post about it, then make us wait like three months or something, lol.

    Yeah I'm saving money now to buy it outright. That's how bad I want it. I'm so over this battery life and ffc on my 1020

    I'm saving my money too! I love my 1520, but I've always loved HTC's higher quality phones. 8X was/is one of them. I'm hoping that, with this phone, HTC will actually treat WP as a viable partner.

    Funny how the 1020 and M8 WP are exact opposites on this matter. The 1020 has the best rear camera (minus slow processing speed and slow camera app) and pretty bad FFC, while the M8 has a mediocre rear camera but has the best FFC.

    I know my VZW friend referred to the One for Windows as having an "exclusivity window". That seemed to indicate a shorter timeframe. If he knows the timeframe, he's not saying. First month of the NFL season makes some sense. I'm not sure if they'd want to carry the marketing through the entire 17 week season.

    If anyone can do it, Verizon can. They put Android on the map. They might be able to do the same with WP, although there's more competition now. Verizon is the largest US carrier, making them the best positioned to do it. However, they need to put their heart into pushing WP.

    Since most other major smartphone makers are likely going to be watching the sales of this one very closely to determine whether they are going to invest in WP again, I would likely buy it to support the cause if it came to my carrier, T-Mobile.

    No way AT&T say they would get it and have a sign up page, and make people wait 17 weeks.

    I had the exact same thought and I'm crossing my fingers that it's only 30 days or so.

    At most 90 days. I'm 100% sure.

    If xda devs can rip the software out of the One M8 for Windows and make it flashable to any One M8, I would definitely convert my One M8 for Android to Windows Phone and give it a try. I won't buy it though.

    HTC should really provide this ability themselves. It could be a huge selling point if they provided an official way to install either Android or Windows Phone on your One M8.

    I hope the HTC One (M8) for Windows will also come to Singapore and the three carriers, SingTel, M1 and StarHub this year and soon so I can renew my SingTel mobile plan and get the phone from a SingTel shop than getting the Verizon one from Amazon.com.

    Verizon will never have the chance to keep this phone exclusive for as long as 90 days as AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile US are also planning to release the phone and a 90-day clampdown can at least make AT&T give up on releasing the M8 for Windows with the other two US carriers following suit and delays occurring for the international release.

    I won't get another Nokia branded phone at least until after it rebranding. HTC One M8(W8) make sense to me at this time. After another year, I'll see what a rebranded Nokia looks like.

    I have the HTC One M8 with Verizon and it is a fantastic phone. Would like to pick up one on AT@T also.
