HTC One M8 for Windows shows up in T-Mobile support pages

htc-hero

Before any hardware release, we often spot T-Mobile preparing its extensive support pages to ensure all the information needed for customers is ready. And that’s the case with the upcoming Windows-flavored HTC One M8. Up until now, it’s been a Verizon exclusive. But if recent leaks are anything to go by, it’ll be making its way to the magenta carrier by the middle of this month.

One of Windows Central’s readers tipped the site with the updated page in T-Mo’s support page that shows the handset’s support guide. For those who want to jump to the full spec list, that’s available to dig through as well. In many ways, it’s identical to the Android-powered One M8, except it runs Windows Phone 8.1.

I – for one – am delighted to see a new flagship Windows Phone join the lineup for T-Mobile. Now let’s hope the carrier bolsters its range further with some new Lumias too.

    I really want to trade in my iPhone 6 for a windows phone but the app gap and lack of iMessage has stopped me. But I really think windows phone os is the most innovative smart phone os. I predict within the next few years windows phone will become more and more popular.

      Honest question here, what’s the big deal with iMessage? Why isn’t just standard SMS and MMS fine?

      • Mike Palomba

        First, it’s faster. Second, typing notifications and read riecepts are nice. Third, you can send pictures and videos of any size without them being pixilated or compressed. They are compressed a little bit but it’s not nearly as noticeable as when you text someone a video or picture with regular mms

          It is like the WHATSAPP Application that can be installed in most phones but when it comes to changing operating systems like going from an IPhone to the more capable high end Android device I have seen it cause a lot of problems.
          From what I hear Apple is getting sued for it because they are intercepting Imessage texts. Make sure you log out of IM when getting a new phone but even that doesn’t always work.

    Finally , can’t wait to get another quality windows phone without being force fed a Lumia .
    Love the windows OS but tired of square edged phones with a worthless rear mounting speaker design.

    It looks like such a great phone, but I can’t downgrade on the camera. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by Nokia for too long.

    • monkeybutts

      It’s not a terrible camera, it’s just not a great camera.

      • Alex Zapata

        I know it’s kind of middle of the road, but that’s what bothers me. I’ll probably still check one out anyway just for the heck of it.

        • Mike Palomba

          I tried it out the other day, but the verizon model, which is the same. The build quality alone is hands down the best of any current flagship. It’s much better in the hand then my iPhone 6. The only phone imo that feels better in the hand then this phone is the 5s

        • Alex Zapata

          My issue isn’t with the build quality. It’s with the camera. Sure, it’s great in low light, but what about all the other conditions? Meh.

        • Mike Palomba

          I agree with that too. The shots were noisy and you really couldn’t zoom.

  • monkeybutts

    If the price isn’t the same as the android version this phone won’t sell very well except for the windows phone enthusiasts, really needs to be in the $500 range the Android version is in with the online sales.

  • susan

    I was hoping for lumia 735. I guess it won’t come out anytime soon

  • Rob

    The hardware is pretty awesome. I had a chance to use th video camera and the quality on the 1080 looks great on the phone and on the TV. the camera could focus better. Holding it in hand and the casing material feels like a real phone. it doesnt have that cheap plastic fee. Physically it is a great phone. I think the Windows mobile software will be even greater than the android with this device because it will be more distinguishable as a windows phone than just another flagship android phone

  • Mark

    Has there been any word of an Android successor to the M8? I know at one point HTC said they were looking at getting out of the flagship Android business. I enjoyed my One S until it locked up, and I’d be happy with a high-end model if I thought they were continuing the line.
