Even though HTC mentioned nothing on the pricing of its two latest smartphones at their announcement event, we only had to wait a day to find out. The HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S just got their price tags in the UK and those seem pretty reasonable.
The two new WP8-smartphones already have their own pages on the Unlocked Mobiles website. The HTC Windows Phone 8 flagship, the 8X costs£398.98 ($646 / €487), while the 8S, is cheaper at £224.98 ($364 / €280).
Clove is also having the HTC 8X and 8S available on pre-order for £399.98 and £224.99, respectively. Expansys has them too - the price for the HTC Windows Phone 8X is £399.99, while the 8S pricing info is yet to be confirmed.
If the SIM-free pricing is too steep for you, you'd be glad to find out that you will be able to get the 8X and 8S at a subsidized price. UK carrier Three has confirmed that it will be offering the duo, but more should be joining it soon. In the US, both phones will be hitting AT&T and T-Mobile, but pricing hasn't been unveiled yet.
The SIM-free smartphones should be available in the first two weeks of November. The release date for the HTC Windows Phone 8X is set for November 5, while Windows Phone 8S is said to arrive on November 15.
is it safe to buy stuff from the websites
I thought this phone was heading to T-Mobile as well?
