AT&T launching HTC One M8 for Windows on Nov 7, priced at $669.99 off-contract

Earlier today, AT&T announced that it will begin selling Microsoft's Lumia 830 on its network from November 7 - although at $99.99 upfront on a two-year plan, or $449.99 off-contract, the so-called "affordable flagship" has been priced a lot higher on AT&T than most people expected.

But alongside its Lumia 830 announcement, the carrier also confirmed that on the same date, November 7, it will finally start offering another long-awaited Windows Phone, the HTC One M8 for Windows, which has so far been a Verizon exclusive.

As a flagship-class device, AT&T has priced it accordingly - the handset will cost $199.99 upfront on a two-year plan, or $669.99 off-contract (which is actually even more expensive than buying it direct from HTC, where it will cost you $649). Key specs of the HTC One M8 for Windows include:

  • 5-inch Super LCD3 display with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • Quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
  • 2GB RAM
  • 32GB storage (plus microSD support up to 128GB)
  • 4-'Ultrapixel' HTC Duo rear camera with 1080p video recording
  • 5MP front-facing camera with backside illuminated sensor, wide-angle lens and 1080p video recording
  • 2600mAh battery
  • 146.36 x 70.6 x 9.35mm, 160g

The device features a premium metallic body, and since it comes with Windows Phone 8.1 pre-loaded, it also includes support for Cortana, Microsoft's digital 'personal assistant', out of the box.
