More coverage

Microsoft enlisted the likes of Holly Willoughby and James Corden to promote Windows Phone in a handful of advertisements. In the above video we can see Corden running through the HTC 8X he just unwrapped. MSN reports that this is an unscripted walkthrough, which would make Corden a fairly experienced fan of the platform.

The team has done a solid job ensuring those who are picked for the job are well informed of all the features presently available on Windows Phone. We'll look forward to see more work from both Microsoft and OEM partners in 2013.

Mugen Power is reported to be working on external casing for Windows Phones. Said cases would wrap around the handset to provide extra battery juice in emergencies when a power outlet is nowhere to be found. A jacket is to be produced for the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X, while a different solution is planned for the Lumia 820 (since it sports interchangeable covers).

Here’s an interesting twist: An HTC Windows Phone design is evidently being reused for a new Android phone. Yes, after a few cycles of having it in reverse it appears now that HTC will take their highly praised 8X design and recycle it for a new Android M7.

The images come via Android Police and while this is far from official (or 100% confirmed), the phone looks different enough from the 8X to be legitimate.

Verizon Wireless is now offering the HTC 8X Windows Phone for $99.99 after contractual discounts and for $549.99 off-contract.

The online listing shows that the 8X is available in red, black and blue and that this is for the 16GB version of the 8X. Which makes this a very nice deal when compared to AT&T and T-Mobile who are asking $199.99 for the 16GB version of the 8X.

You can find all the details on the Verizon 8X here at Verizon Wireless.

Thanks, everyone, for the tip!
