HTC debuted its new Windows Phone 8X superphone featuring Windows Phone 8 operating system to the world today at a high-profile event in New York City.
While I wasn’t able to play with Windows Phone 8 software, I was able to hold the 8X in my hands, to listen to some surprisingly crisp music through the 8X’s back speaker, and to see an up-close demo of the software by an HTC representative. It felt quite light in my hands and Windows Phone 8’s software was incredibly responsive and fast.
It was exactly what I expected — not a major surprise but not a disappointment either. The phone, along with Nokia’s 920 and 820, will help spread the word on Windows Phone 8 as a solid alternative to iOS and Android.
The 8X features a 4.3-inch super LCD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8-megapixel back camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera, 16GB of storage, and NFC support.
The device will be available in November on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. Check out photos of the 8X below.
