In addition to offering details on the availability of Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 devices on its network, wireless carrier AT&T also confirmed the pricing for HTC’s Windows Phone 8X smartphone and its availability on its network by Thanksgiving.The new smartphone will hit shelves with a price tag of $199.99 attached to it with a monthly agreement and with 16GB of internal memory packed inside.
Additionally, AT&T’s customers will be able to purchase an 8GB version of the mobile phone in California Blue and Limelight (yellow) at only $99.99 with the signing of a two-year contract.
While we have already learned that Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 would be released before the end of this week at AT&T, no specific release date for the HTC 8X has been provided as of now.
Announced as HTC’s flagship handset powered by Microsoft’s new mobile operating system flavor, the Windows Phone 8X by HTC comes to the market with a 4.3-inch 720p HD display (1280 x 720 pixels), as well as with a dual-core processor packed inside.
Moreover, the mobile phone was unveiled with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, 8GB or 16GB of internal memory, a microSD memory card slot to expand the available storage, and a front camera for making video calls.
“The 2.1-megapixel, 88 degree, ultra-wide front-facing camera is able to capture self-portraits of you and the faces of up to four friends all at once,” the wireless carrier notes.
“The 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture allows you to capture great photos and videos – even in low light. As the first-ever Windows Phone 8 smartphone with built-in Beats Audio technology, this device gives users authentic, studio-quality sound.”
