Nokia has been alone on the vanguard of worthwhile Windows Phone hardware for a while now. But that's no longer the case. Here's HTC's 8X. And it's got enough firepower to go toe-to-toe with anything on Android or iOS.
Roughly a week ahead of the Windows Phone 8 launch on October 29th, AT&T and Best Buy have put out some pricing details on the new Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X via the Best Buy website: $149 for the Lumia and $99 for the 8X. And pre-orders are open now.
There was a time when you could buy something that was compact, fast, and beautiful. That time is over. "Smaller" is just a polite way to say "here's the bad version for cheap people." And that's really awful.
