HTC to launch more handsets on Windows

HTC has been in a bit of a rut lately as it has lost ground in the Android wars and is struggling to make ends meet.

HTC to roll out

HTC has been in a sales rut over the last two years, and building some of the best pieces of hardware has proved to be the most temporary of remedies.

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. This device was listed as "launching" on a part of the site before it was quickly taken down.
