All you need to know about the HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S
Today was HTC day, as the company has made its first Windows Phone 8 devices official. Meet the HTC Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S! Beautiful names, right? Oh well, we guess we'll have to put up with it. Anyway, the two phones are here now, and they are not bad at all! The flagship model, the 8X, is a pretty promising handset with a nice 4.3" LCD 2 display and a staggering pixel density of 342ppi! The other internals are just as impressive. Meanwhile, the slightly more affordable Windows Phone 8S also seems like a very stylish and capable offering, although it does bring the resolution down to mere 480x800, which should still be enough to provide decent image quality on the 4" display.

It's also worth noting that both phones are very colorful, and come in a bunch of different color schemes, which immediately reminds us of Nokia's Lumias. The only WP handset thus far which has refused to succumb to this coloromania is Samsung's ATIV S, which has a more "business" kind of appearance. But back to the 8X and 8S - if you want to know all the details about HTC's new products, just check out our coverage below - you'll find all you to know there.
