HTC 8X Now Available in Israel via Orange and Cellcom
The smartphone can be purchased for £635/ $1016/€785 outright
Although Nokia Lumia 920 is one of the best-selling Windows Phone 8 on the market, the HTC 8X comes in second especially given the fact that the Finnish company seems to have big issues covering all orders for its flagship smartphone.Even though it cannot be put against the Lumia 920 when it comes to specs, the HTC 8X is a pretty solid device hardware-wise.
There have been reports that the smartphone has some freezing and rebooting issues, along with the Nokia Lumia 920, but these seem to be software-related.
Nokia and HTC are reportedly working with Microsoft to determine what’s causing these freezes and reboots on these two handsets and have said that more details will be unveiled as soon as they find a solution.
Back to HTC 8X, the smartphone was launched on the market earlier this month. Today, the folks over at WMPoweruser report that the device landed in Israel via Orange.
Unfortunately, the no-term price is extremely high, as customers will have to come up with no less than 3924 Sheqel upfront, which is about £635/$1016/€785.
On a side note, before making any purchases on Orange Israel, customers who wish to grab the HTC 8X may want to check out with Cellcom, which also has the smartphone up for sale.
Obviously, the HTC 8X comes with full Hebrew localization, which was directly integrated in Windows Phone 8.
Other than that, the phone sports a more than decent 4.3-inch Super LCD2 capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution and features Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating.
On the inside, the HTC 8X packs a dual-core Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5 GHz, along with an Adreno 225 GPU and 1GB of RAM.
Sadly, the phone does not come with microSD card slot for memory expansion, but it does feature 16GB of storage and 7GB of free cloud storage via SkyDrive.
