September 19, 2012- Combining efforts against the attention the iPhone 5 has been drawing upon itself, both HTC and Windows today joined forces to announce the arrival of two new phones.
Manhattan saw the arrival of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer as well as HTC CEO Peter Chou as they unveiled two new Windows phones. The phones hold the initial titles of Windows Phone 8X by HTC and Windows Phone 8S by HTC.
Whereas the first boasts a 4.3 inch screen allowing for high definition viewing, the latter has a 4 inch screen of a lower resolution. Both new phones have the advanced Beats Audio technology best served with headphones of the same make. Along with having a better screen, the 8X also has its front facing camera complete with ultra-wide-angle making it ideal for those who like to photograph large groups of people. The phones are also available in a multitude of colors with the Windows ‘Live Tile’ interface, although claims that these are the signature windows phones may not be so pleasant to be heard when Nokia, also working with Microsoft for their phone’s OS, get wind of this.
Prices the phones will be sold for have not yet been revealed, but it is now known that the 8X will be available in US Markets at T-mobile, Verizon Wireless and AT&T come November, with the 8S also expected around the same time.
