I agree, with the new nokia 620 this phone looks good and thats it. Nokia will have front camera, NFC and all the nokia apps. What is HTC doing?
Anonymous, 07 Dec 2012Since you are trolling I guess you will mot buy this!At least i do another job too, unlike some other
With the release of the Lumia 620, this device doesn't have a proper unchallenged position any longer. Over priced and less character, this 8S. It rightly isn't coming stateside.
Zao, 07 Dec 2012Because they happen to have other jobs than trollingSince you are trolling I guess you will mot buy this!
Great phone with great design. People who are deriding the eye-catching tile interface of windows 8 do not appreciate innovation. What is android?just a copy of iphone interface-same sliding features,same apps view. Microsoft did try something out of the box and it succeeded.

HTC windowsphone is obsolete phone, thats why price is cheap, nobody wants a kid phone with those funny microsoft tiles which is for kids. Better buy upcoming galaxy s4, or s3, or any android device.
Moody, 07 Dec 2012Dont compare this beauty with that over priced garbage. No one is talking S3 here. So don't worry.
with lumia 620 around why would I wanna go for this -otherwise cute- phone?
Phones4u will be offering the HTC Windows S in blue and black/white on pay as you go for £230 and the same price free as of today

You would find a bookmark for our homepage though which can be deleted by the end user

Like in NOkias of old, if they were not sim free they would have special menu items and shortcuts and the browser homepage could not be changed, it was hardcoded to the carriers own start page. So no, better to pay those 225 they mention there instead, thats a very good price.
Waiting for this model to be released in india. I presume that HTC has done a good job in getting the right design, hardware and software. Hope there will be no disappointments!

Actually thats not the full price of this phone. The 8S is not a budget phone, it will cost much more SIM free. This price of 179.99 is PAY AS YOU GO and you can only use a Three SIM card, its wrong of GSMArena to call it off contract. In other european countries this phone is being sold for up to 280 pounds (the most extreme case i seen), but then its SIM free. Expect to pay around 230-240 for a SIM free 8S for now, soon lower.
