    Fully expected worldwide availability a few months after the US release, but it never came.

    It's a shame yeah. Imported one through eBay and so far everybody is complimenting me on how beautiful it looks. (Netherlands)

    I hope that the M9 goes global once its released (that is, if there's a Windows variation)

    Do you have 4G on it? From what I understand it doesn't work in Europe.

    Anyone? Would like to know whether I will have 4G in Europe if I purchase this phone.

    You need to find out which frequency bands your network uses and match them with the ones on the device.

    I think the LTE bands on the Verizon version only work in America. Correct me if I'm wrong... Better chances with a T-Mobile version. Highest I can get is HSPA+ which is very decent still, but no 4G in the Netherlands

    I pulled this off the ATT website for the WP version, so SIM-unlocked, you'd be good to go on 4G almost anywhere in Europe:

    4G-LTE Bands 2, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 17

    I just think HTC were testing the waters with the M8. The world had the 930 and the US didn't so there was an opening to see how it was received. I would imagine that if HTC liked the feedback the M9 would be a wider release.

    I don't see it happening. The M8 didn't sell that well. If it does happen, it won't be right away. Maybe after the M8 Win has been out for a year in the US, but not before then. The problem is that they have to soak test the device with an OS before it goes public. That would mean running 8.1.1 right now then flipping it to Win 10 in a few months. I bet we will see it in September with Win10 at launch...

    What are you basing your sales numbers on? Do you work for HTC to know.

    Windows 10 already runs on the M8, just check the forums so there would be no 8.1 release or carrier testing for the M9 with 10 giving a suitable gap from the M8 release. If I was to guess ( and lets be honest, we are all guessing here) a late summer / fall release would make sense if its going to happen.

    Maybe there isn't much of a demand for high end windows phone just low end models. This phone sales had to be very poor. For one there isn't much demand for windows phone in the USA. I am surprised T-Mobile hasn't sold it cheaper as yet. They already stopped selling the M8 for Android online.

    They stopped selling the M8 for Android because the M9 is about to be released?

    Oh there is a demand but in the US, you would be hard pressed to find the windows phone variant in the carrier stores and if there is the reps will push the android variant (from what I can gather from the posters on Windows Central and friends in the US).

    It is a crying shame it is limited to the US, I would have imported one :P (as Three UK use Band 3, O2 my previous provider use Band 20 so it wasn't an option) but since there is no "Country Variant", I sure as heck not going to spend good money to be tied to the whims of a carrier that doesn't supply my phone service.
