Google Play Edition HTC One M8 Released


The Google Play Edition HTC One M8 just hit the Google Play Store. It is listed as coming soon and selling for $699. This is a GSM handset that will work on both the AT&T and T-Mobile networks with no issues. Like the rest of the Google Play Edition Devices, the HTC One M8 is available to U.S. customers only. Minus Sense 6.0, the Google Play Edition shares all the same internals, even including the micro-SD slot we keep hearing that Google hates.

Self-proclaimed "know-it-none," I prefer HTC hardware with AOSP ROM's. When not writing about technology or shooting YouTube videos, I like to tinker with motorcycles and R/C cars.
