HTC Windows Phone 8X preview
News from Techworld.com:

Nokia’s Lumia 920 is expected to give the Windows Phone platform a significant boost when it hits the market in the coming months, but HTC is still committed to Microsoft’s mobile OS, too. Its latest effort is the Windows Phone 8X, a unibody polycarbonate slab finished in bright, vibrant colours.

First of all, that name. HTC has partnered with Microsoft to promote the 8X as a “signature Windows Phone”, so the Windows Phone branding is positioned before the model number. It doesn’t exactly roll of the tongue, but this partnership suggests that the Windows Phone 8X will be a huge focal point for Microsoft. That may be concerning to Nokia, but the more exposure for Windows Phone the better, in our opinion.

HTC has clearly put a huge amount of focus on the design of Windows Phone 8X. The company claims its designers based the case of the 8X on the Windows Phone 8 live tiles, hence the vibrant colour options. The device will come in California Blue, Graphite Black, Flame Red and Limelight Yellow colour variants and each model will have a matching Windows Phone 8 interface theme to suit.

Perhaps more surprising, HTC is hedging big bets on Microsoft’s mobile platform, placing the device up there with the HTC One X. It marks an important shift for HTC, diversifying their portfolio rather than investing all of their resources in Android.

HTC 8X: We’re After You, Lumia!

As mentioned, the HTC 8X Windows Phone is a full-featured Smartphone offering a 4.3-inch, 1,280 x 720 Super LCD 2 display. It is as beautiful – and dense – as Samsung’s flagship devices. On the inside, the HTC 8X sports a dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, Gorilla Glass 2 coating, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage. Not too shabby for a Windows Phone, huh?

The phone packs a Near-Field Communications (NFC) chip, 802.11n Wi-Fi, quad band radios, and LTE. Unfortunately, the phone has an integrated (read: non-removable) 1,800 mAh battery that should last all day with Windows Phone 8’s robust power saving technologies.
