The new HTC 8X will be available in red, blue, yellow, or black colors versions. It also uses Micro SIM card. It will go on sale in November worldwide from 150 carriers in 50+ countries.
Though, talking about US availability; it will be heading to online carriers, including AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile in November. However, AT&T’s pricing is $199; we’ve to wait a bit more for other carrier’s pricing info. But it is worth mentioning that if this phone heads to AT&T with same time-frame as Lumia 920, then customers may have a hard time deciding on their next Windows Phone.
On the other hand, the Canadian retailer Rogers will also be carrying the 8GB and 16GB versions of the handset.
