We knew it was coming thanks to the tireless efforts of the rumour mill, but now HTC has officially announced the Windows Phone One M8. Unfortunately it’ll only be available in America for the foreseeable future.

So what’s different about this version? Very little actually, aside from the operating system it’s a total clone of the Android powered One M8. Looks like the rumours were true then. But that’s not a bad thing since the HTC One M8 is still an amazing piece of kit. It’s still a phone that comes with a Snapdragon 801 processor, Ultra Pixel camera, 32GB of expandable storage, 2GB of RAM, and 5-inch 1080p display. It just happens to run Windows Phone 8.1 instead of Android KitKat

There’s not much else to it, but you can watch the Verizon introductory video below and mope about not being able to buy one here. [Gizmodo UK]
