In a depressing bit of news, T-Mobile confirmed to me today that the HTC One M8 for Windows will not be coming to their network until the holiday season this year. This lends a bit of credence to the possible 90 day exclusive for Verizon Wireless that so many had guessed at to start with. The device launched in August on Big Red, which would pin that 90 day period ending just before Black Friday and the holiday sales season.
If this is the case, more people might want to consider shelling out the $550 for the HTC One M8 for Windows to Verizon where you can take it to many of the US networks and only lose the MMS capabilities for now. Of course, you also have the option of keeping on the Verizon LTE network at $45 a month for their unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data with AutoPay.
Either way you go, the HTC One M8 for Windows is a great device on a great network. It’s just a shame that consumers won’t have a choice to have it on T-Mobile until so late in the year.
