HTC Launch Windows 8S and 8X Phones! I want one!

HTC have just expanded their range of phones to include both Android and Windows 8 phones, and from the look of their the new 8S and 8X HTC are winning at Windows 8 mobile phones!

I’m a pretty excitable person when it comes to tech. I’m excited about the Xiaomi M2, the Oppo Find 5, the new Meizu, even the iPhone 5 and now I’m super stoked about HTC’s new Windows 8 phones!

The new HTC 8S and HTC 8X are both Windows 8 phones which feature a splash of Nokia styling with a healthy dose of HTC’s own styling magic along with Microsoft’s latest mobile operating system.

    I love to see these ones comparated with the lumias. I like the lumia 920 and perhaps could be slightly better for its display (or perhaps no but can use with gloves is a great and useful plus); better for the pureview algoritm; and besides I personally don’t like beats sound. I prefer neutral sound and not bass “enhancements”

    Said that I am a bit sad about the HTC design. It’s so similar to the lumias. And besides I was waiting for something different: windows mobile 6.5 has the legendary HTC HD2, Windows Phone 7 grow to HTC HD7 which has one of the better designs (even I almost think iPhone 5 seems a knock off of it:P), but these newer models to WP8 are so different to HTC stuff!! They look so good but don’t produce me the same emotion or excitement that HTC HD7 had in me.

    Yellow & White? Great combination! I like it !!

    @sara Not all must be Android, or iOS. Have many OS is better than an unique option. WM8 is very good, if you don’t use it, you must do it and them comment. I like so much MeeGO, but Chinese factory don’t use it :/ is a pity
