Excitement Begins for Windows Phone 8X and 8S

It’s a unique design Engadget says “immediately grabs your attention.” After a year of close collaboration between HTC and Microsoft, the new Windows Phone 8X and 8S deliver the first signature Windows Phones in a design uniquely inspired by the Live Tiles.

Now, after unveiling these new phones in New York yesterday, it’s clear many of you are eager to make one of these new designs your own (especially that Limelight Yellow 8X).

The new design for our  Windows Phones 8X and 8S is drawing praise from industry insiders as well.


And not just Gizmodo.  From Engadget to BGR to TechnoBuffalo, The Verge, and Wired, check out what industry experts are saying about HTC’s new line of Windows Phones.

Or, if you’re ready to learn more about the Windows Phones everyone is talking about, simply check out the Windows Phone 8X by HTC or Windows Phone 8S by HTC at htc.com.

What the experts are saying:

“The 8X immediately grabs your attention. In fact, it practically begs to be looked at, and that’s to HTC’s credit.”

Josepth Volpe, Engadget (Full Story)

“HTC’s Windows Phone 8X and 8S take the Windows Phone lead.”

Jonathan Geller, BGR (Full Story)

“It’s incredible. I want one (the lime green one) now.”

Todd Haselton, TechnoBuffalo (Full Story)

“I got a chance to get some impressions of the 8X during a briefing recently and I came away impressed.”

Tom Warren, The Verge (Full Story)

“Judging by my hands-on time with several different builds of HTC’s newest handsets, the 8X and 8S are the true Windows Phones to beat.”

Alexandra Chang, Wired (Full Story)

    I’d love to stay with HTC as I have the Trophy and have found it to be a solid phone, but the lack of memory and no ability to expand it on the 8X is killing it for me. I’ve been dealing with 16gb for over a year and it’s atrocious. I had used streaming, but that is becoming a non-option I will loose unlimited data when I upgrade. Can someone please explain this decision? And can someone please push for a high end phone with expandable memory when the next run comes out in about 6 months?

    I’m a HUUUUGE HTC fan but normally for all your Android products. I must say this new line is quite sexy!!! I’m definitely eager to test the 8X. Good job HTC 🙂

    Proud owner of the HTC Sensation.. that is until my next HTC device 😉

    Looks great, I want the 8X. Please let it be available on Virgin Mobile. I’m hopeful since Virgin already has other HTC phones. I’m willing to pay full price for the phone. I’ll never understand why I can’t buy any phone I want with a no-contract carrier. -Seriously days away from paying $650 for an iphone4s on Virgin Mobile, gonna wait now and see, if given a choice I’ll get the 8X in a heartbeat, otherwise I’ll have to settle for and be happy paying for the 4s.

    Pricing in overseas market especially in Asia, makes it non-competitive with iPhone and other Android phones
