HTC 8X and HTC 8S announced for Windows Phone 8


Turns out it is sometimes better not to wait too long when it comes to the smartphone race. While Nokia was the first to showcase their Lumia 920 & Lumia 820 devices for Windows Phone 8 at the Nokia Press Event in New York City earlier in Sept, they failed to follow up with two very important factors: price and availability. HTC made a similar announcement 3 days ago, the HTC 8X and HTC 8S, this time accompanied by availability. Both devices will be available in over 50 countries via 150 carriers in November 2012.
