The Taiwanese phone maker didn’t reply back at the time. Now, however, when the time comes for the launch of the new Windows Phone 8 devices, HTC is throwing a few punches.
The HTC 8X is more than 20 pennies lighter than that "other" Windows Phone.”
This slight jab is directed squarely at the Lumia 920’s noticeable 6.53 ounces (185g) of weight. Compare this to the much lighter 4.59-oz (130g) HTC Windows Phone 8X and you’d see the difference is nearly an ounce and a half, as much as 20 pennies weigh.
Interestingly, Nokia seems to no longer be Microsoft’s nearest and dearest partner. It is still an important one, but it seems that HTC has won Microsoft’s heart with its 8X and 8S Windows Phones and the 8X is the phone Microsoft chose to feature prominently on Microsoft’s Windows Phone website, while Lumias are displayed way down at the bottom.
