HTC is prepping a new Windows Phone powered flagship for Verizon. @evleaks calls it the HTC W8, which could very well be its final name (remember the HTC 8X and the 8S?). No further details are known at the moment. However, we speculate that the W8 will very closely resemble the new HTC One. There were several reports a couple of months ago about Microsoft paying HTC to put WP on their existing Android handsets. Well, this could be the first of such devices. Or, you know, our speculation is completely wrong, in which case you can forget about all this and carry on with your life.
