Glacial Silver HTC One M8 Thaws Out Enough To Become Available From AT&T

Leading up to announcement day, HTC One M8 leaks typically showed off the Gunmetal Gray version of the device. This version has also held much of the spotlight since.

Red HTC One M8 Leaks For, You Guessed It, Verizon

If there's one thing Verizon's known for, it's high prices. Errr, constant changes that end up costing consumers more money. No, that's not right either. Umm...red! That's it. If there's one thing Verizon's know for (aside from high prices and finding ways to charge customers more money) it's red. You know, the color. That's why we call it "Big Red." Heh.

PSA: Sprint Is Planning To Make All Its Devices From February 11, 2015 Onward Domestically Unlockable

The US mobile market is weird in that almost all the phones floating around here are locked to one carrier or another. You can usually request an unlock code from the carrier if you are not under contract or still paying off the device, but Sprint is different. It claims it doesn't have any mechanism to unlock phones for use on other US carriers right now, but that's going to change next year.
