htc-aug19I suppose it is only natural for us to get all excited about the upcoming HTC One M8 for Windows smartphone, which so happens to be a device that will come with all of the bells and whistles that the HTC One M8 offers, and yet it will not run on the hugely popular Android mobile operating system, but rather, will stick to Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform. This is certainly a bold move by the Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer, and the latest press invites that they have sent out point to an event in New York this coming August 19.

It remains to be seen whether the Agut 19 event will have anything to do with the HTC One M8 for Windows, although chances are it will be in that general direction considering how there has been nothing else from HTC in terms of leaks and rumors to suggest any other smartphone release. In fact, it would be a real surprise indeed, if we were to see some other kinds of smartphone model other than this Windows Phone designated one.

So far, we do know that the Windows Phone version will share a fair number of traits alongside its Android counterpart, including a Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB RAM, a choice between 16GB and 32GB of internal memory, and a 5″ 1080p display.
