AT&T Scores Exclusive HTC 8X Color, Available by Thanksgiving
AT&T today announced that the HTC Windows Phone 8X will be available online and in AT&T retail stores before Thanksgiving. The 8X is being sold in two colors: California Blue and Limelight Yellow. The yellow color will be exclusive to AT&T. The blue 8X will be available in two variants: 16GB for $199.99 and 8GB for $99.99. The yellow variant will only be available with 8GB of storage for $99.99. The exact availability date has yet to be determined. The HTC 8X runs Windows Phone and includes Beats Audio.
Microsoft has tapped HTC to build the iconic launch phones for Windows Phone 8. These sibling phones are similar, with the Windows Phone 8X being the higher-end of the two.
HTC delivers one of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones in the 8X, a thin slab that includes LTE 4G, an 8-megapixel camera, and a dual-core processor. The 8X's spec sheet may be full, but we found a few things it's missing.
