Hi

Does anyone know if the HTC One E8 is likely to land in NZ? Currently considering the M8 but would be more than happy with the E8 if it saves a few $100. Would be looking to buy on contract so really looking for "official" sales of the E8 rather than a parallel import.

Cheers,
Chuckman

IMO it is unlikely to be available in NZ, traditionally HTC has not been a big seller here, adding to the fact that the E8 is only available in selected Asian countries, no info on when it will be available outside of that AFAIK.

Thanks - pretty much China, India and Taiwan that I can see. Was just wondering if there might be anyone "in the know" on these forums.

Looks like I'll be off to get a M8 then. Was going to hang on a little longer but broke the screen on my S3 a couple of days ago :-(

I have the M8, came from an S4.

Feels beautiful holding it with the metallic curved back fitting right into your hand.

The fact that you can only get one color of the M8 from carriers here would indicate to me that there is fat chance of them supporting the E8 here. The going rate for an M8 has dropped from $1049 at launch to $799 on most weekend specials, so I doubt it would be worth the hassles of parallel importing an E8.
I would rather see a carrier supported M8 mini if they are going to bring another HTC phone in, or even the new generation Desire.
