HTC One M8 for Windows will be coming to AT&T and T-Mobile too

Summary:HTC is doing something that no other manufacturer has yet done by getting the exact same phone on all major US wireless carriers running two different mobile operating systems.

I continue to enjoy testing the HTC One M8 for Windows on Verizon, but will be sending the eval unit back soon. Thankfully, HTC will be bringing this same device to both AT&T and T-Mobile.

The AT&T announcement was made later the same day as the Verizon launch, but T-Mobile just shared their upcoming availability. We do not know how long the M8 for Windows will be a Verizon exclusive, but T-Mobile does state it will be available online in time for the holidays. Labor Day is a holiday, right? By the sound of this, it looks like Verizon may have something like a 90-day exclusive.

It is great to see that the HTC One M8 for Windows is the exact same hardware as the Android model and looks to also be consistent across US carriers, with the exception of the wireless radios.

Thanks to my MoTR podcast cohost Kevin Tofel for the heads-up on this news.
