With Skype running in the background a bigger battery should be added. And i really think M$, has taken Nokia for a ride (sorta like the mafia did back in the olden days), just to get a hold on that camera. I feel sorry for Nokia, but then again, HTCs phone does look nice.

I will be comparing the two when they both launch. I love music so I am leaning towards HTC with the beats audio solution.

Beats audio doesn't really change anything, I've tested it and even the galaxy s3performs better than the HTC one X. I don't really know about the windows phone version though.

The WP version has a dedicated amp on each output. This should really make for a great musical experience. Its something not alot of phones have. I looking forward to this.

Beats on androids is software only... the 8X has 2 amps build in

I remember my HTC Touch Pro 2 having kick azz sound (not even for its time, it still out performs MANY MODERN smartphones - based on sound alone).
HTC has differentiated their Windows Phone 8X from other "Beats" Android phones with software AND added amplifier.
