HTC Windows Phone 8X launch schedule
HTC’s Windows Phone 8X and 8S devices not only have been priced in the UK, but one of them (they say it’s the more interesting one) has even been made available for pre-orders on AT&T in the US. Rumors about early November launch we have heard, too, but it’s only now that we get specific dates on the duo market availability.
UK retailer Clove has officially announced a November 2 release date for the Windows Phone 8X, and November 15 for the Windows Phone 8S. This means that we’ll see the two WP8 smartphones being globally rolled out around the same dates.
The Winows Phone 8X has a 4.3″ 720p S-LCD2 at the front, an S4 chipset with two Krait CPU cores, an 8 MP bright f/2.0 wide-angle shooter on the back and runs the latest version of the Microsoft mobile platform. Clove has the device priced £399.98. The Windows Phone 8S packs a less impressive specs sheet, featuring a 4″ WVGA screen, lower-clocked Krait-powered processor and 5 MP camera, but adds expandable storage to the mix. It costs £224.99 at Clove.
