HTC Bringing Windows Phone 8 To Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile

HTC today announced its first two phones for Microsoft's new Windows Phone 8 OS. HTC has exclusive use of the Windows Phone 8 brand for the actual phone model names. The flagship model will be called the "Windows Phone 8X by HTC", and the lower-end model, the "Windows Phone 8S by HTC". Microsoft and HTC will market the phones together as "signature" launch phones for Windows Phone 8. Both phones have a similar hardware design, that evokes the Windows Phone software with its bold colors against black and squared design.

AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon will all carry the 8X, and some may carry the 8S as well. The 8X will sport LTE for AT&T and T-Mobile, and HSPA+ 42 for T-Mobile. Other specific pricing and availability was not announced.
