It is exactly like the HTC M8, but it runs Windows Phone 8 and therefore shamelessly can be proclaimed to be one of the best Windows Phone device yet. Welcome HTC M8 for Windows Phone.
What happens when you take the best Android smartphone and slap Windows Phone on it? Needless to say you get the best looking Windows Phone smartphone out there, and that is exactly what HTC has done with the M8 for Windows. The device has everything that we have come to love about the original M8 but runs Windows Phone 8.1 when it comes to OS. The smartphone has the Dual Camera rear setup and as a result has all the blurring effects or the defocus effects that the HTC M8 has been flaunting. The HTC M8 for Windows was announced as an exclusive to the US carrier Verizon for now, but we hope the phone will be available unlocked too.
Ever since the latest update for Windows Phone by Microsoft made it possible for OEMs to port Windows Phone for existing hardware devices, this is the first instance where an OEM has taken advantage of the feature and therefore extended the offerings when it comes to the existing line of devices. Just like the M8, the M8 for Windows has a 1080 P 5 inch display with Snapdragon 801 SoC at the heart of it with 2 GB of RAM and 4 Ultra Pixel primary camera. The internal memory here is 32 GB with expansion via Micro SD possible with 2600 mAh battery. You have all the Windows Phone 8.1 goodness here, and in addition you have some nifty HTC features such as Blinkfeed is included as a dedicated app. The phone is available as of now and will cost you $99 on a two year contract or for $600 unlocked.
