The 8X was built from the ground up as a request to HTC by Microsoft to make a whole new experience and exciting design that builds off of the Windows Phone tile system. In that sense, the phone is the first of its type and brings and exciting new look to HTC’s Windows Phone 8 series.

More coverage

We know that AT&T will be offering the HTC 8X Windows Phone but a tipster has let it slip that AT&T may be offering the 8X in 8GB and 16GB versions.

The information on the 8GB version came to light in a training session. At first we were thinking the 8GB version was the 8S but AT&T has only announced the availability of the 8X.  It's possible that AT&T will offer two storage size options for the HTC 8X with the 8GB being sold at a lower cost (much like we see with the iPhone).

Could HTC be offering AT&T customers a choice with two version of the 8X? If so, would you jump on the 8GB version of the 8X if the savings were right? Speaking of which, pricing wasn't mentioned on the AT&T HTC 8X tip.

The nice thing about all these rumors is that we don't have too terribly long to wait until everything comes into focus.

Good news for T-Mobile users as you can start to expect the HTC 8X to be available for purchase on Wednesday, November 14th.  That date actually falls in line with things we’ve heard in the past and leaked roadmap via TmoNews only confirms that information.

Unfortunately, no word on when the just announced Nokia Lumia 810 will arrive, but it’s starting to look like it may come after the 14th since it doesn’t yet appear to be scheduled. Plus we still know nothing of the Samsung "Odyssey" either.  Of course, like all dates, pricing and device availability news, we’re sure to find out more in the coming weeks and especially on October 29th.

It appears that the HTC 8X Windows Phone will be available in the Netherlands on November 1st. This is according to Mark Moons, HTC's representative to the Benelux (which is basically an economic union that includes Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemburg).  If November 1st holds true, it will be hot on the heels of the October 29th Microsoft Event to unveil Windows Phone 8.

Cost for the HTC 8X was noted at being around €549 (about $712 U.S.). Moons added that the HTC 8S Windows Phone will hit store shelves shortly after the 8X. No pricing information was made available on the 8S.

The HTC 8X is well on its way to Verizon

We're aware that Verizon is most probably going to stock the HTC 8X - in fact, it's pretty much a certainty. Not only has the Windows Phone been confirmed to be heading to the US carrier by its own roadmap, but HTC also hinted in one of its press releases.

If that weren't enough, a HTC 8X video sports a Verizon 4G LTE logo on the rear panel of one of the featured models. Just to ensure there's little doubt left. Here's some more good news as today it has been reported that the FCC has cleared the HTC 8X for docking.

Three UK's sensible pricing for the HTC 8X is revealed

Three UK has what it will charge customers for the HTC 8X Windows Phone leaked. According to images published by GSMArena, the carrier will be setting a price point of £349 should it be purchased on PAYG (Pay As You Go - locked to the network). If you're up for a new contract, the soon-to-be-released smartphone can be yours from £34/mo with an up-front fee of £29.

The carrier is stocking not only HTC's flagship Windows Phone at launch, but the HTC 8S will as well. While no pricing was revealed for the latter in GSMArena's report, it'll be interesting to see how Three prices the younger sibling with its slightly less advanced specifications. As the HTC 8X is relatively affordable for what's on offer, the 8S should appeal to many smartphone newcomers once pricing is officially announced.

It's no secret that Windows Phone 8 devices such as the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X will have NFC integration. We are now seeing that an NFC reader/writer app should be available for these Windows Phone 8 devices. The NFC Interactor was announced at the NFC Congress in Hagenberg last month and will feature not only tag analysis but also a flexible tag composer.

Not really sure what all is involved with a flexible tag composer but our guess is that you can create a NFC tag for... say... your contact information and share it with another NFC integrated phone/device. Much like we can do currently with a QR Tag or Microsoft Tag and our Bing Vision.

HTC 8X on its way to O2 DE

O2 Germany will be stocking the HTC 8X, according to a tweet published by the carrier. The Windows Phone is also heading to O2 in the UK, so it makes sense that Telefonica would also add the smartphone to listings in other markets.

If the time frame supplied in the tweet is indeed accurate, we'll be looking at a late October launch on the German carrier.

Both the HTC 8X and HTC 8S are on their way to UK carrier O2, according to the "coming soon" section of its website. While no dates for availability are provided, we can speculate using pre-order product listings published by Amazon and other retailers to reach a rough estimation. 

The HTC 8X will be able to make use of O2's upcoming LTE network, which will be rolled out thanks to the carrier, Ofcom and the UK government reaching an agreement to bring forward the originally set date for when the UK will begin to see LTE be deployed by carriers.
