HTC 8XT is Sprint's first Windows Phone 8 model, will launch July 19th
The HTC 8XT is equipped with a 4.3 inch screen with resolution of 480 x 800 (WVGA) and a pixel density of 217ppi. A dual-core 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor is under the hood while the Adreno 305 GPU handles graphics. 1GB of RAM is onboard with 8GB of native storage. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is available to expand storage. The 8MP rear facing snapper captures video in 1080 x 1920 and there is a 1.6MP front-facing camera as well. An 1800mAh cell powers the unit.
The phone has a resemblance to the HTC 8X, although it has more "green" features including the fact that it comes in 98 percent recyclable packaging. The phone will cost $99.99 after a $50 rebate and a signed two-year pact.
Sprint also announced that it will release the Samsung ATIV S Neo later this summer for a contract price of $149.99. This model will feature a 4.8 inch HD display, 1GB of RAM and a removable 2000mAh cell.

I think I'll wait for the Ativ S neo.
Stupid Sprint always late to the party.

I was going to wait for the Ativ S Neo as well, but I couldn't deal with the wait so I decided to get an Android.

I will wait as well. There is no telling when Sprint will get a Nokia Windows Phone.

Congratulations, Sprint! You get a warmed-over HTC 8S.

Pretty much, but with a name resembling a better device to try to sell more units. Pretty lame.

I really like the HTC design but the back of this phone disapointed me,while the front side is really cool
