Looks quite interesting. Wonder if the M8 can be 'dual booted' a-la HD2?

I read somewhere that it will be possible to install WP8.1 on the M8...
Don't see why not.

And yes, I'd definitely consider a W8. Lumia cameras are better, but I could use the speed of the Htc camera...

As to the dual-boot... Maybe with some sly hackstering? After all, MS did hint at such dual-boot devices in the past, and it seems WP8.1 may feature compatibility with 'smartcases' especially for the HTC One M/W8, so maybe the W8 is not just a low R&D cost compromise on Htc's part?

I'll be researching that and let you know :)

Wonder what the W8 price will be? Assuming you CAN port WP8.1 to the M8... Loads of 2nd hand 'as new' M8s around...

Well... I've read that in the US at least it's cheaper than the M8.
And i've also read that the hardware is identical
But, the way Win8.1 is set up and partitions etc being totally different, that dual boot will be more of a challenge than getting it working. All this is of course dependant on getting an image of the W8.
Watch this space :)

Makes sense...
