What's so special about Retina? It's just an LCD IPS panel with a high resolution. Doesn't stack up to (new) SA HD and S-LCD2 HD.

Dont bother replying, once you see "wendygarett" you should just thumb down.

Good One HTC... now trying to get the profits by volumes rather than keeping the price high.. HTC makes amazing phones.. been a fan of them since the HTC Touch days.. Hope this strategy works in their favour.

HTC Windows Phone 8X up for preorder on Expansys UK for the equivalent of $512 SIM-free
The midrange HTC 8S goes down much further, to $290 equivalent on preorder

Its no wonder that Nokia is trying to sue HTC , they cant sell their lumias for this kind of sim free prices

Either the new Nokia Lumia 820 or the HTC 8S will be my next phone because I need micro SD. Whichever one makes it to T-Mobile first.

UK prices are always ridiculous compared to the US ones. Even factoring in the nearly triple sales tax there is always a hugh price difference. I wouldn't be surprised to see the American pricing at $450 for the 8X and $250 for the 8S.
