Windows Phone Is Getting One of the Best Android Phones

Just as the rumors foretold, a Windows Phone version of the wonderful HTC One is headed for Verizon—or so this photo tucked in an unseen corner of Verizon's servers seems to indicate.

The rumor of a "One (M8) for Windows" has been around for some time, and just this week WP Central said such a device could launch as early as August 21st at Microsoft Stores. Now that folks have uncovered this live-tile-equipped One image from Verizon's servers, it looks like Big Red will roll out the Windows One soon. Engadget predicted no later than the end of September.

We loved the 2014 Android-powered One for its beautiful design, well-detailed screen and sizzling fast guts. It'll be interesting to see how that muscle translates to the Windows Phone ecosystem—and whether or not it'll make folks a little more likely to want to pick up a Windows Phone.
