Right in time for the upcoming new episodes!

I believe this also works on AT&T HSPA+.

I don't understand who would pick the 8X over the 920 if you're on ATT though? :o

Yea.. but if you have ATT you might as well get the better phone, for instance the Nokia Lumia 920.
I'm seriously confused who'd actually pick an 8X over the 920 lol.

People who...have $250 but not $450 in extra cash on hand perhaps? $200 is not chump change.

Sorry I meant to say "wait until you have enough for the 920"

S_C_B says:

Price is a factor for some people.

Yea getting any phone over the 920 is just a down grade plus the 920 is cheaper then the HTC 8x so u ask your self what company is fuckn over ther fans lmao

S_C_B says:

I don't think the 920 is cheaper than this $250 8X.

sdreamer says:

Those who want a smaller flagship-status device? (By flagship, I mean more of HTC's WP flagship device.)

Pleistoros says:

Hey Nokia fans....angry troll much?

I am a Nokia fan but I'm in no way trolling.. I simply don't see the logic in going with HTC over Nokia especially when ATT has the best Windows Phone on the market.

invertme says:

Someone might like the formfactor or style better. That would be more than enough reason to the 8x over the 920.

ether813 says:

Someone still on contract and cant get the upgrade price.

WP95 says:

Maybe they would like a thin, sleek device. You can argue that the 8x is the best looking handset on the WP platform.

Wacft says:

Starting to look like they are doing price cuts to sell as many units before the 928.

blackhawk556 says:

shouldn't they be trying to get rid of lumia 822s? this is a sign HTC is not selling wp8 devices which gives them little incentive on investing in high-end phones for the future.
This is bad for the platform no matter how anyone tries to spin it. It simply is.

hary536 says:

I believe, Cowboom models are not brand new. 

Krinos says:

According to the 822 accounted for 22% of US WP devices whilst available only on Verizon, compared to 20% for the 920 just on AT&T, and 16% for the 8X across three carriers. Verizon don't need to fire sale the 822, it's selling pretty damn well. The 8X on the other hand is doing pretty poorly considering its wider availability, most probably a result of its higher price, which in turn is a result of its non-exclusivity.

Wacft says:

Retail does this all the time. Any product that may have sales affected by a new product then has the price reduced to encourage sales before the new product releases.

ade333 says:

"If you are buy curious". Lol

Sam Sabri says:

Just quoting Tobias Funke. 

Then you must be as gobsmackingly excited as I am for the new season! I plan to get Netflix just for this reason...

blackhawk556 says:

this isn't good. no matter how we try to spin it, this doesn't give HTC much confidence for wp8. $250 out the door after 5 months?? what other "signature" phone on android has dropped this much so quickly?? sales must be really low if they're dropping them this much. 
fanboys, please don't tell me that phones drop this much after 5 months. They simply don't. Do prices drop? HELL YES! not like this.

Sharpmango says:

'we' don't need to spin it. Htc are really struggling. Despite receiving 70% of Microsoft's advertising spend, their net sales were pathetic. Now theyre struggling to maintain cashflow, switching to focussing on android so are disposing of all inventory. Bad for htc, not necessarily for WP

blackhawk556 says:

How is this necessarily not bad for WP? If HTC really is getting rid of all their WP inventory to focus on Android, that means only Nokia will be phone manufacturer who supports it. Only ONE!! THIS IS BAD.

Residing says:

It really is Microsoft's issue to be concerned with 'the platform' - it is their platform after all!
As for HTC- they were given a 'Signature' moniker by Microsoft, yet, there was nothing about the device that compelled the majority of WP8 users to buy it.
Frankly, I personally wouldn't mind if Nokia was the main oem; actually, they kinda already are.

Drewkkake says:

You're going to call this "spin," but here's my perspective on it: the non-Nokia manufacturers haven't been doing all that much for the platform, other than offering a handful of other hardware options. Those other options have generally been rehashings of eight-month-old Android hardware, or have seen poor software support from the manufacturers.
Because Nokia is "all-in" with Windows Phone, they're busting their butts on support/updates, software offerings/exclusives, and hardware diversification. Samsung and HTC don't seem to have that focus, and it seems to show in the user satisfaction. I've got an HTC Trophy on Verizon, and I've loved using it for (almost exactly) two years. But I have never considered using my upgrade on the 8X or ATIV Odyssey because I know that a (flagship, I know about the 822) Lumia is around the corner.
I think that Windows Phone as a platform is still so young that I'd rather have fewer, better options, than give unwitting purchasers and wireless carrier reps an opportunity for criticism (with something like an ATIV Odyssey). If people are only buying Lumias, then this seems like the market doing quality control, and I think that it could be great to build Windows Phone. When the marketshare increases, maybe then the struggling HTC can afford to divert sufficient resources to release a compelling product (like the One).

Pleistoros says:

You are right. If WP goes belly-up, HTC will survive. Nokia, not so much.

peterfares says:

Do not buy this for use on carriers other than Verizon if you want MMS to function. The "Add MMS APN" option was removed with the Portico update (and it was broken before the Portico update, it wouldn't save anything you eneterd). Also the HTC Connection Setup app doesn't work on the Verizon 8X, it just says SIM card not detected and closes. So it is IMPOSSIBLE to make MMS work on any GSM carrier.

hary536 says:

IMO, Only a handful of customers use MMS in this world of internet apps.

So you would download a bunch of apps just to message different ppl who use different apps?

hary536 says:

Nowadays, most of the people have what'sapp, skype. What else do you need? 
What'sapp is present on most of the feature phones, at-least on Nokias.

S_C_B says:

I disagree with this opinion. Strange as it is, I still use mms.

hary536 says:

That's why i didn't say "No one uses".

Neo Nuke says:

This comes unlocked out of the box and works on at&t HSPA but I remember people having a hard time getting MMS to work

Too bad it's only available in black. I almost blue myself when i saw this.

willied says:

Oh, man. This is a quality comment.

Genius, sir. Genius. Yolosaurus wins the internet for all time.

"buy curious"...

I see what you did there. :D

TrustySnooze says:

I wish we had some more color choices though.
Do we know how long this will last?

Xaphoon148 says:

You meaning 8x offer or htc itself...?

TrustySnooze says:

The 8X offer. -_-

oddom says:

I would buy one if I was on Verizon but alas I'm not -.-

rjygraham says:

Just bought one to hold me over till the Lumia 928 is released. My Trophy has been a trooper but I've had the itch to upgrade for awhile now...

My upgrade isn't up until September, but I'm in the same boat as you with my Trophy. It's hard to resist the urge to just splurge and buy it because I've been craving some new hardware...ugh. But I want that Nokia WinPho experience.

Sam Sabri says:

Did the coupon code above work without issues?

rjygraham says:

Yep, HTC50 worked like a charm. I also had no problem checking out!

Yup I had no issues!

mixtnet says:

How many gigs? 8 or 16Gb?

TrustySnooze says:

I also wonder this, it doesn't seem to say.

teoami says:

Since it is Verizon, it is 16GB. The 8GB version was only for ATT.

tcman88 says:

phones are not brand new. It's returned/exchange devices that bestbuy resells them

c0wb0ycliche says:

There is clearly an option for "new" or "used" lol.

tcman88 says:

It says new device may or may not have a factory seal aka open box

franknyarkoh says:

I think HTC is facing serious problems in the windows market. The 8x is not bad. The current price sounds like , a give-away

el-bori says:

I've been waiting for a Nokia 920 variant on Verizon so I got this one to start learning WP8. I've been and Android user for 5 years.

rjygraham says:

Welcome aboard, hopefully you'll love Windows Phone!

HTC is just unloading old devices before new devices arrive. Verizon is doing it also, reducing unsold inventory. Nothing wrong with that, considering that this year there will be new WP8 devices.

I pulled the trigger and bought one out of curiosity. I currently have the Lumia 822, which I love but I am curious about the 720p display on the HTC8x. 
If it doesn't work out, I am sure I can recoup, selling on clist or ebay. 

Is it just me or are they out of new ones? When I click on the HTC 8x New link, it takes me to the used page, and there is no option for new. 

Sam Sabri says:

They must have ran out. When I posted this yesterday there was an option for new or used.

sirthunt says:

This isn't an indication of HTC or Verizon nor even WP's standings. This phone is being sold through a third-party and it is REFURBED. There's is nothing in that equation that shows any sort of negative light on any of the three parties involved.

Gunbust3r says:

The link now redirects to the refurb item. The original link was for a new 8X

ihavewp8 says:

The 8x is way Thinner and so dam light weight. Lumia bulky and more weight
