If we asked you to name the best current Android flagships we imagine some familiar names would appear, among them the HTC One M8. The all metal device has a serious claim to being called the best smartphone period, and not just on Android, while it is also the driving force behind HTC?s mini renaissance during the last quarter.The problem for the company is that it will be a difficult task for the One M8 to keep propping the brand up, especially with more and more Android contenders finding their way to market. An interesting report today suggests that HTC is willing to broaden its horizons and could well be making a Windows Phone version of its highly acclaimed smartphone. A Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 would certainly give the company more room for manoeuvre and according to PhoneArena sources the handset will arrive on Verizon in the US by the end of September. This all seems entirely possibly, HTC was after all one of the first along with Nokia to build for the retooled Windows Phone two years ago. It would also give HTC a real chance of shifting more One M8's to the growing Windows user base, who at the moment have the choice of several Nokia?s for flagship kicks. The HTC One M8 would certainly put the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons and would give Microsoft a headache as it attempts to keep Nokia?s thus far unchallenged hold over the platform. As for HTC, the more we think about it, the more it makes sense. Really, what does the company have to lose by doing this? source: BGR
