Did the HTC 8X for AT&T and Verizon make an appearance at the FCC?
Also included in these filings are numerous test reports which provide readings to ensure the radio waves generated from these devices do not cook us during everyday use. Model PM23300 is the AT&T version of the 8X and the test reports showed the device was installed with Windows Phone 8, build 9720.
Model PM23100 reveals more or less the same information, but shows frequencies used by Verizon plus in-depth reports about Wi-Fi and Bluetooth performance.
The timing could not be better. As the HTC 8X is sure to attract a lot of interest. The device looks to be very responsive and capable as seen in the video we looked at recently.

It is in testing already I got to use one 2 days ago at my store (Verizon Wireless) I like it fast as hell, nice interface, and feels good in the hand. back feels weird though.

How does the phone feel weird? Hard to hold? Unbalanced? Or?

The 8X is going to be a good device also but Nokia with the exclusive apps makes it so much better. I may just have to settle with the 8X since I'm with Verizon.

With 2 carriers selling the HTC, I predict more HTCs will be sold in the U.S. than L920s

Not buying that Big Red doesn't get a 920, just after a short exclusive period for AT&T.
1) AT&T desearves it. They went in on Windows Phone and gave Nokia a Hero device status. While not a run away success, the 900 launch and support got Nokia back in the minds of consumers. Nokia will return the favor and give AT&T a head start. However...
2) Nokia can not afford to be timid or play favorites long term. They need the 920 and 820 to be on every shelf of every carrier willing to push it. Verizon is the largest US carrier, and Nokia can count. 100 Million customers with maybe 30-35 million contracts coming due is more important than loyality to AT&T. By December, my guess is Verizon has a 920.
3) The leaked roadmap for Big Red showed the Nokia 920 coming, and the rumors revolve around 4 WP8 handsets. No reason to doubt that.

HTC's Titan series was a plan and simple bust. The first device, which my Wife owned, was a buggy, freezing, unresponsive mess. The call quality was poor, the device never got the Tango update even as my Focus S, the Focus Flash and the Nokia 900 did, and Samsung released updates to the devices on AT&T to deal with some other bugs with sound quality and responses while the 2 Titans on AT&T and the Radar got nada. The Titan 2 (which we got from AT&T after 4 replacement attempts of the original Titan) is better, but still drops the keyboard, still has reception issues (dropping phone calls a couple times) and is still slower than any WP should be.
This is just my buyer beware post. HTC has dropped customers and profits for a reason. I want to see them do well, but both their Android and WP 7 devices have been undersupported and underwhelming. I would give any HTC release a few months of user reviews and forum reading to see if they have improved.
Just my opinion.
