T-Mobile site reveals prep work for HTC One M8 for Windows
Verizon is losing exclusives left and right. Earlier today we saw Motorola break ground on the Moto Maxx, the different-in-name-only international alternative to the Droid Turbo on Verizon. A couple days before that, AT&T announced plans to carry the HTC One M8 for Windows, ending the Verizon exclusivity that has persisted since it launched in August. But AT&T’s not the only carrier we heard would be getting the Windows-Phone-running One M8, and a leak late last month teased T-Mobile’s interest in the phone. Now that’s looking all sorts of confirmed, as a support page for the phone turns up on the carrier’s site.
There’s really not much content there just yet, but the page’s presence alone appears to back up that earlier leak. Well, at least in the sense that it shows T-Mobile getting ready to begin One M8 for Windows sales – what it doesn’t help with any is confirmation of just when those sales could get underway.
That leak mentioned the carrier welcoming the phone on November 9, this coming Sunday. As far as we’ve seen, that’s still looking like the best guess at a date for when the One M8 for Windows will show up at T-Mobile, though even that could change at the last minute. We’re also still waiting for news about what T-Mobile’s thinking in terms of pricing. It currently sells the Android One M8 for about $585, and considering how both Verizon and AT&T have assigned matching prices to their own Android and WP One M8s, it would make a lot of sense for T-Mobile to follow the same pattern.
