According to an earlier rumor, it has been suggested that the name of the Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 has been revealed. Tentatively dubbed the HTC One M8 For Windows, the folks at Windows Phone Central claim to have learnt from their sources that the handset could actually be pegged for a launch on Verizon for the 21st of August via the Microsoft Store.
This seems to be in line with an earlier rumor which has hinted that the phone could be potentially released in the third quarter of 2014, and that its release would be no later than the end of September, so guess a launch in August does make sense. The handset has also been rumored to be priced the same as a normal flagship, meaning that it should retail for $199 on contract and around $610 off-contract.

While the concept of taking photos of oneself is not new, we guess the term “selfie” has been coined and sort of made it “official”, so to speak. That being said, word has it that Microsoft could have a new handset in the works that could be aimed at the selfie-taking user. This is according to a recent report from NokiaPowerUser who has revealed the existence of the device.
Unfortunately it seems that the handset will not be a high-end one. Instead, customers can look forward to a mid-ranged handset, which we guess is fine if you’re shopping on a budget and if a good front-camera would be more important than other hardware features of a phone. The handset is said to sport a 5MP front-facing camera and is expected to see a release in the later part of the year.
