HTC 8X Receiving Windows Phone Update from AT&T
AT&T today made the 'Portico' update available to the HTC Windows Phone 8X. The update resolves Bluetooth and other bugs. The international and T-Mobile variants of the 8X were updated last month. It can be downloaded and installed over the air.
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.
