HTC's New Two Windows 8 Phones
Following the LG Android announcement, very early this morning, we were offered bus rides to the next event – an HTC announcement - all the way over on Manhattan's West Side.
As you can guess by Steve Ballmer's appearance in the above photo HTC announced two new Windows Phone 8 phones.
As a matter of fact Windows Phone 8 is actually in each phones' official name: HTC's Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S.
The 8X is the larger of the two designs. It sports a 4.3-inch touchscreen (720 by 1280 pixels), a 1.5GHz Qualcomm dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a 2.1MP shooter up front, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, and a Beats Audio sound system.
The even more colorful, but slightly smaller 8S comes with a 4-inch touchscreen (800 by 480 pixels), a 1GHz dual-core Snapdragon chip, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, a 5MP shooter on the back and a Beats Audio sound system.
HTC was quick to point out that both designs depend on a new, 3D interior layout to create a thin, sleek design with very narrow edges.
The Windows Phone 8X will come to AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon “in November”.
No plans were announced, at this point, for the 8S.
