    Hi, I am businessman in Kenyan who is interested in importation and distribution of HTC phones in Kenya and around East Africa. Can anyone contact me with some pointers on how to do this?

    Geeks always loved HTC. Most devices have wonderful specifications and terrificlly attractive design. It all makes people wish and sometimes even dream to have an HTC phone.

    Since i bought my HTC HD2, I’ve always loved HTC. Nothing compares to it when it comes to craftmanship. I’d surely get this one if it doesn’t cost way beyond my budget.

    brilliant Larry, can’t wait to give the X8 a go, I’m putting this up on my FB page Asap 🙂

    You should improve the softwares. Add more camera filters and create a real turn-by-turn gps navigator. Let us download Nokia Drive if Nokia will release for other manufacturers can be a real alternative.

    I want to replace my HD7 with the 8X but Bell still hasn’t got the phones yet and no one can tell me when they’re supposed to be in. Almost a week late for e advertised date of November 15th. I may end up buying a Nokia instead if I can’t get a straight answer.

    Love the HTC 8S but HTC should look into Memory expansion by MicrosSD card. Surely there must be a way to utilize some of the MicroSD memory available
