The Windows Phone version, called HTC One (M8) for Windows, comes with a 5-inch 1080p HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core 2.3GHz processor, and 32GB of storage and microSD card slot, and ships with Windows Phone 8.1 Update installed.

It will run on Verizon’s 4G LTE network and is available for online order starting today and in stores tomorrow.

HTC has had success with the Android version of the HTC One. 

But both Windows Phone and HTC have a lot of catching up to do.

Windows Phone’s worldwide market share declined in the second quarter this year to 2.5 percent, down from 3.4 percent a year ago, according to research firm IDC.

And HTC is no longer among the world’s top smartphone makers after 10 straight quarters of shipment declines, according to research firm Strategy Analytics.
