Amazon reveals HTC Windows Phone 8X market release date

25 September, 2012 | Comments (58) | Post your comment

The HTC Windows Phone 8X was announced at an HTC event last Wednesday, and now we have a date when you can expect to get your hands on one.

Amazon UK has the SIM-free variant up for pre-order, with an expected shipping date of November 8th. It can be had for the rather steep price of 531.43, or $863.

While this price and the release date, for that matter is not exactly official, a retailer as big as Amazon can't be far from the truth. Either way, we won't be seeing any Windows Phone 8 phones on the market until Microsoft officially releases the platform, expected in late October.

Meanwhile, Clove UK also have the 8X for a more reasonable 399 ($648). If you'd like to learn more about the HTC Windows Phone 8X, check out our hands on from the release event here.
