Updated: rewrote the post to reflect the actual availability of the handsets.
AT&T today announced that the HTC Windows Phone 8X will be available for purchase in stores beginning November 9. The 8GB California Blue model should be available in most AT&T stores. In-store availability of the 8GB Limelight and 16GB California Blue models, however, will be scattered. Customers will be able to purchase the 8GB Limelight and 16GB California Blue versions in stores, and those purchases will ship by next week. AT&T is charging $99.99 for the 8GB Limelight and California Blue models, and $199.99 for the 16GB California Blue model.

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.
