Official: HTC 8X will be available tomorrow at AT&T starting at $99.99
With very little notice, AT&T has announced that the HTC 8X will go one sale tomorrow (in store and online) starting at $99.99 with a new to-year contract. The $99.99 price point will allow AT&T customers to choose between the 8GB HTC 8X in California Blue or Limelight (an AT&T color exclusive), but those interested in the $199.99 16GB model will only have those option of California Blue.
Today’s announcement is a bit surprising since AT&T sent out a press release two days ago which said the HTC 8X would be available “before Thanksgiving” while Nokia’s Windows Phone 8 handsets were given a November 9th launch date. We still have not had the opportunity to play with the HTC 8X, but we’ll be sure to give you guys our initial hands-on impressions tomorrow once we get down to the local AT&T store to play with the phone.
Are you planning on purchasing the HTC 8X tomorrow?[toggle_box title="Press Release" width="Width of toggle box"]
Earlier this week we announced pricing for the Windows Phone 8X by HTC with two different memory options for customers – 16 GB of memory in California Blue for $199.99 and an AT&T-exclusive 8 GB of memory version in California Blue and Limelight (yellow) for $99.99.
If you watched track and field events in the Olympics this summer, you saw how distinctive these electric yellow hues can be. We are the only carrier to offer the device in this eye-catching Limelight hue.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, we’re excited to announce that all three models will be available for purchase beginning Nov. 9 in AT&T stores and online at www.att.com. You can order them all starting Nov. 9, with 8 GB Limelight and 16 GB California Blue shipping next week.
The Windows Phone 8X by HTC has a stunning 4.3-inch 720p HD display (1280 x 720 pixels) and an outstanding camera. The 2.1-megapixel, 88 degree, ultra-wide front-facing camera can capture self-portraits of you and the faces of up to four friends all at once. The 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture takes great photos and videos – even in low light.
It’s the first-ever Windows Phone 8 smartphone with built-in Beats Audio™ technology, so your music sounds even better with authentic, studio-quality sound. HTC also added a unique audio amplifier that powers the 3.5mm audio jack and speaker to provide improved sound for music, video and even gaming.
This smartphone is one you won’t want to miss so be sure to check it out on Nov.9 and visit www.att.com/8xbyhtc for more information.[/toggle_box]
