AT&T HTC One X+ and VX pre-orders begin tomorrow

The AT&T pre-order period for the ultra-powerful re-birth of the captain of the HTC football team, the HTC One X+, begins on the 13th of November, that being tomorrow, with a release date of November 16th for in-store availability. These devices expand the HTC One series into the future with one extra-affordable entry into the family and another that's an upgraded version of its former self. Along with the updated version of the T-Mobile HTC One S, this should very well count as a resurgence of the HTC One lineup - a rebirth as a butterfly, if you will.

Is HTC finally making Sense?

Is HTC finally making Sense?

After its annus horribilis of 2011, HTC's year is looking considerably better. A solid reception to the One series and a potentially key deal to be the face of Windows Phone 8 - seized right under Nokia's nose, no less - is the dressing around hardware that is finally compelling: attractive, competitively priced, not embarrassed in specifications. Now, with the HTC One X+, there are signs that HTC is addressing its last big blot on the score-sheet: cloud services.

The words relayed back then made it seem as though HTC would be going Apple's way with a strategy that focused on a single phone - or perhaps a small collection of phones - that would be supported in ways that simply are not allowed by a strategy that includes phone after phone released in tight succession. This was an amazing opportunity for HTC - what happened?

We caught up with HTC for some pre-announcement playtime.
