HTC Windows Phone preorders starting in China at retail stores

HTC 8X

HTC mainland stores in China have started to take preorders for the 8X and 8S. The devices are on China Unicom and the 8X is available in black and red variants for 3999 RMB ($640), while the 8S can be purchased for 1999 RMB ($320) in blue and black & white. The company is clearly targeting low price points to battle Nokia in the Windows Phone ecosystem.

Both handsets are currently hitting the market in several locations, and with the Lumia 620 set to see Nokia taking on the low-end market, HTC certainly has its work cut out to build brand awareness and make sales. The HTC 8X is also on China Telecom where the device has been tested to work across multiple networks.

Be sure to check out the thread at Coolxap for photos of the device specs.
