It's not the most one-shot of launches, but it would appear that these brothers-in-arms from HTC and Samsung are headed to the market together to bring Windows Phone 8 to the masses this summer. While Samsung aims for a slightly more familiar face with the ATIV Odyssey starting today (online) for its 4G LTE-slinging US Cellular iteration, the HTC device will have to wait a bit longer. But what HTC brings to the party may just be worth that wait - the most powerful front-facing speakers on a smartphone in the market, only otherwise available on the HTC One (and the Butterfly S, of course).
HTC’s new Windows Phone 8X proves that the manufacturer is capable of building a solid Windows Phone 8 device. We’ve already taken a look at AT&T’s version of the 8X, as well as T-Mobile’s variant, but Verizon has the new device in its repertoire as well, and we’ve got it right here in front of us to see what this version offers. Since we already went over the basics as well as the more advanced stuff with the original full review, as well as dabbled around with T-Mobile’s version, I’ll just be briefly providing an overview of Verizon’s version for those who may be interested in grabbing the device from Big Red.
Welcome to Wednesday evening everyone. Today Samsung rejected rumors that it's been charging Apple a 20% premium on processors for iDevices, saying that since the prices are determined and agreed upon at the beginning of the year, it would be pretty difficult to change them. Speaking of Apple, the company confirmed today that it will soon open its first store in South America - the store will be located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to be exact.
Get your Windows Phone 8 rally caps on for a trip to T-Mobile today as both the HTC Windows Phone 8X and the Nokia Lumia 810 have been made available to the public just this morning. We've had a full review of the Lumia 810 earlier this week and have had our hands on the Windows Phone 8X in a full review before it made its way to T-Mobile as well. Now it's time to check out how the two compare to one another - especially since we've just gotten the T-Mobile Windows Phone 8X in the mail!
It's time to get on board with Windows Phone 8, and what better way to do it than with one of the two first devices on the market with the mobile operating system? We've had a look at both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC Windows Phone 8X - now it's time to pit them against one another in an all-out race to the finish. The finish in this case being your hand - and your pocket, of course.
A couple days back, AT&T gave us pricing information for the HTC Windows Phone 8X, but sadly didn't part with any specific release info. The carrier said that the phone would be available "before Thanksgiving," but today we're finding out that it'll be launching quite some time before Turkey Day arrives. AT&T has announced that the Windows Phone 8X will be available to order starting November 9, which just so happens to be tomorrow.
It's time for the HTC Windows Phone 8X, Nokia Lumia 822, and Samsung ATIV Odyssey to hit Verizon and start the Windows Phone 8 party on the United States' largest mobile carrier. Each of these devices will be working with 4G LTE connectivity and will be bringing on what Verizon assures will be an interface that will allow you "new ways to further personalize your smartphone" - as Steve Ballmer has made clear many times. They also assure you that "Windows Phone 8 will debut on a number of new smartphones" as well - can we hope for more Verizon action soon?
After introducing the first NFC-enabled battery case for the Samsung Galaxy S III back in September, Powerskin is back with a set of new skins for a handful of different phones. Like the case for the Galaxy S III, these cases not only add NFC support to your phone, but they also extend the battery life too. A winning combination for some, and soon Powerskin will have cases ready for the HTC One X+, the Samsung Galaxy Express, and the HTC Windows Phone 8X.
AT&T has finally unveiled its pricing and launch dates for their range of Windows Phone 8 devices.
