    Why count HTC and Samsung as "new" hardware partners?

    I'd take a Windows Phone 8.1 (with all the features we hope for) in a HTC One shell any time. I might even buy it in summer instead of waiting for autumn.
    If it has the S800 or S805, quad core with 3GB ram and minimum 32GB, it should sell. Still, I'm on the fence about the whole installing apps to SD feature.

    I don't think much about SD cards. Since I use Spotify for music I rarely think about storage at all. I only know that LaRUE doesn't like SD cards on WP.

    Concerning the specs, I don't even need it to be too high-end. It's Windows Phone after all. I won't software features and a nice phone, and I'd be happy :)

    I'm sure it will be the HTC M8 shell with WP8, as the One was last year's hardware.

    Android phones like the gs5 won't get the 805, but I would love the 805 with a 41MP camera in a 5 inch 1080p screen. :)

    I was more referring to the type of phone as to actual hardware. To be honest, one of HTCs Android high-end devices running WP, I'll believe it when I see it.

    HTC is in trouble, and after the 8X they focused entirely on Android. It didn't help too much, Samsung is all over the place there. However Nokia is all over the place concerning WP.

    Will they change their strategy so soon after they decided to go for Android? Or will they just release another low-end device?

    We will see.

    Remember that we may not see any new hardware until summer at the earliest. If what I read is correct, the S805 should be available by fall. That's a perfect time for WP. I guess we will see some hardware before then, but I doubt that anything noteworthy.

    I do use them, because that's where I keep my music more easily. Even if this support is added, I doubt I will add apps directly to it. Funny how MSFT is embracing apps to SD while Google is getting away from that...

    MSFT's loosening of some of the hardware restrictions may help HTC. If they are able to uses directly the same guts for an Android and Wp8 variant of the same hardware, it allows them to provide better support and not waste resources building separate devices that doesn't sell. They needed to get back to mid to low end devices because that's where real profit is as the high end is saturated.

    Yeah I will probably wait till then, or get a 1020 successor. Wen I get 8.1 on my 920, I will be able to hold on for a few more months. :)

    Well, I'm pretty much set. Outside of a 1020 dropping in my hand, I will ride things out with my aging 8X and my 925 (assuming repairs go well). It would be nice to see MSFT push out 8.1 first and then drop hardware in the summer and fall. That would be a cool way to reward the loyalists...

    My 920 will feel very new when it gets 8.1. I don't need a new phone yet. :)

    I got GDR3 early, with the Dev Preview, then got Black. Yeah, you're right, let's hope we see stuff that HASN'T BEEN leaked or mentioned yet (that means Cortana doesn't count).
