HTC One M8 for Windows quietly launches on T-Mobile [Update: Or not]


Earlier today, T-Mobile quietly launched the device online, showing the price as $585.60, or $0 down and 24 monthly payments $24.40. Since then, the listing changed, and now shows “COMING SOON”. However, if you go to the cell phones store page and hit the “info” icon on the HTC One M8 for Windows listing, you can hit the “Buy Now” button and order it that way.

Over the past couple of weeks, a number of clues have hinted at a launch for the Windows Phone powered version of HTC’s award-winning HTC One M8. First, a leaked retail roadmap showed a 11/9 launch date, and then it was spotted in T-Mobile’s support pages with help documents and a full spec list. It’s nice to see it finally land in Magenta-flavor.

One (M8) for Windows packs a 5-inch 1920×1080 display, 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, rear Duo Camera with UltraPixel sensor, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and BoomSound front-facing speakers. Also included is 32GB of storage with a microSD slot for additional space.

Let us know if you’re planning on buying one. For me, it seems clear that this is the Windows Phone device to beat.

Update: I got a response from T-Mobile, who tell me that the device isn’t for sale just yet. We’ll go with “Coming Soon” for now.
