Is it only me or does HTC Windows Phone 8X copy Nokia polycarbonate unibody and style, and 8S is somehow similar to Sony design language? This company is rolling out of courage to create something of it`s own. Shoot them!!!

Great looking phone. HTC must ensure that this phone gets more than a decent battery life to support the users, unlike HTC one x ,which otherwise is great phone but lacks a good battery life.

I guess some people would also prefer the wider aspect ratio or just want the extra internal storage of the 920.

Its not about the quantity, its about the quality. Google can't stop bragging about number of apps, but in truth there are alot of crappy apps, sorry to burst your bubble :)

Lumia and Xperia copycats.. Well, maybe 8X is licensed because of Nokia's design patent. But who knows? But anyway, they look absolutely better than the Ativ. Hahaha

I heard this lacks camera image stable-lization. That is big drawback apart from lack of micro sd card and low power battery,

Like the desire x only with windows.
Question: When will it be possible to choose whether i like windows or android on my phone, because specs are the same.
On a PC nobody would accept, if you could only install windows and for example for LINUX you need an additional pc, but smartphone customers pay every ammount of money

Why have abig event when its not finished,,HTC should be their with working models to mess with generating mass publicity and chance to show off the device..Great press release releasing a phone that not finished..

Ford have just unveiled their new car can we take it for a spin or has it got any MPG figures or top speed figures,,SORRy its not finished yet.

16gb on a flagship? Not even 32gb?

Yet again, HTC failing on the basics...
