HTC One M8 with Windows Phone

As was widely rumored in recent weeks, HTC and Verizon Wireless have today unveiled the HTC One M8 with Windows Phone 8.1. This new flavor of M8 has Microsoft's mobile OS running the show, with the same specs and all-metal chassis we know from the original Android HTC One M8, and it'll be carried exclusively by Verizon. That means you've got a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor inside, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, 2,600mAh battery and UltraPxel rear camera, backed up by HTC's depth-sensing Duo Camera. To sweeten the deal Microsoft's also throwing in 15GB of free OneDrive cloud storage.

This one's a Verizon exclusive, and it'll be available Aug. 20 for $99 on contract.

This new M8 is HTC's first major Windows Phone launch since the 8X series in late 2012, and while there's no indication of any wider launch beyond the U.S., our friends over at Windows Phone Central have already been getting stuck into the device. Head on over there to learn more.
