HTC’s Windows Phone now available from AT&T and T-Mobile, too

If you’re loyal to Windows Phone and looking for a new device this holiday season, there aren’t many high-end options to choose from. One of the best is HTC’s One M8 for Windows, which has the same body and build-quality as its Android sibling, but running Microsoft’s mobile operating system instead.
