Is Nokia/Microsoft Finally Going to Launch a Device Right?

HTC One “M8 for Windows Phone” Coming to Verizon

I have stopped reporting on this rumor of an HTC One running Windows Phone 8 because it has been going on ever since the original HTC One came out. I am doing it this time only because this rumor originated from the Verizon site.
