The world of mobile news is scary and complicated, with rumours flying about all over the place about what the many different companies are planning on doing. If you don’t know what you’re looking for then chances are you won’t get very far, so to ease your burden here are some of today’s biggest mobile rumours.
1. The Windows Phone HTC One M8 could come to the UK before the end of the year
Yesterday saw the official announcement of the HTC One M8 running Windows Phone 8.1, which turned out to be a Verizon (and US) exclusive. Well it sounds like HTC isn’t deliberatly restricting sales by limiting the phone to a single market, since a report from Neowin claims that the phone will be released in the UK during Q4 of 2014. Neowin claims that “sources at one of the UK’s leading independent phone retailers” passed on the information. No mention of which retailer they’re talking about, but we don’t really have long to wait before we find out f the report is true or not. [Neowin via Ubergizmo]
