HTC One M8 front

Details on the Windows Phone 8.1-powered HTC One (M8) have been trickling out over the past several days, including information related to its official name and features. Today more info on the device have leaked, this time providing us with more details on its launch.

Source speaking to WPCentral say that Microsoft Stores are planning to launch the silver HTC One (M8) for Windows on August 21. The handset is expected to be sold for use on Verizon in the U.S., and in case you’re curious, August 21 is a Thursday, the day of the week that Verizon prefers to launch new products. The One (M8) for Windows is listed with a full price of $610 and it’ll likely cost $199 with a two-year contract.

Microsoft Stores are also expected to receive accessories like the HTC Dot View case, which will be supported with Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1. Other cases from Otterbox and Speck are reportedly headed to stores, suggesting that the One (M8) for Windows is straight-up a Windows Phone version of the One (M8).

So long as all of these rumors hold true, the HTC One (M8) for Windows sounds like an interesting device. Some folks may be disappointed that HTC isn’t crafting a totally new Windows Phone model, but the One (M8) is a premium Android smartphone with high-end specs, so it’s not like they’re getting a bad device by any means.

Are any of you thinking about making the One (M8) for Windows your future daily driver?
