This hanset has been officially launched on March 25 in a press event. But Verizon users were the first to get hold of the handset as it was earlier reported the network will exclusively offer the smartphone for 2 weeks.
HTC One M8 can finally be purchased in more than 100 countries worldwide in 230 carriers. In the U.S., Amazon gives Sprint and Verizon subscribers a good deal for HTC One M8 with a price tag of $149.99 for a two-year contract. AT&T offers the same handset for $50 higher with a price tag of $199.99 respectively.
HTC offers the M8 with a suggested retail price of $200, so it is safe to say AT&T followed HTC's lead for its pricing.
In a different light, Verizon looks like they could snatch a good deal with the smartphone manufacturer aside from getting two-weeks exclusivity to offer the device. The carrier also offers an enticing Buy 1 Get 1 limited promo of HTC One M8.
