The device is priced at $99 with a two-year contract on Verizon Wireless

We’ve known about HTC’s latest Windows Phone device for quite some time, but today was the official unveiling for the HTC One (M8) for Windows.
 
As we’ve previously reported, the Windows Phone 8.1 version of HTC’s flagship smartphone shares identical hardware specifications with its Android relative. That means a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor is onboard along with 2GB of RAM, a 5” 1080p display, 32GB of internal storage, microSD slot for further expansion, a 2600 mAh battery, HTC Boomsound, U-Focus, and support for the Dot View case.

 
The HTC One (M8) for Windows is launching today on Verizon Wireless and is priced at a respectable $99 with a two-year contract. Verizon Wireless also announced this added bonus for new signups:
 
And for a limited time, customers who activate or upgrade to a new smartphone on MORE Everything plans with at least 1 GB of data will get an extra 1 GB of bonus data per month for up to 24 months, as long as that smartphone remains active on the MORE Everything plan.

 
So is hardware that matches some of the best Android smartphones currently available, a non-Nokia exterior design, and Windows Phone 8.1 a recipe for success? Microsoft needs all the help it can get in pushing Windows 8.1 on consumers, and this latest partnership with HTC can only help further those efforts.
