Best Buy to take HTC Windows Phone 8X pre-orders starting October 21st?
Big Box retailer Best Buy could be taking pre-orders for the HTC Windows Phone 8X as soon as October 21st. That is based on an advance copy of the electronic retailer's circular dated October 21-27. While no specific carrier is mentioned by name, the picture of the device accompanying the ad shows the AT&T version of the phone. Verizon and T-Mobile are also expected to offer HTC's high-end Windows Phone 8 model.

The HTC Windows Phone 8X is equipped with a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 display with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a spectacular pixel density of 342ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 with an Adreno 225 GPU. 1GB of RAM is on board and there is 16GB of internal storage. Keep in mind that the device lacks a microSD card for memory expansion. The 8MP camera on back captures video in 1080p at 30fps and there is a 2MP front-facing camera. As has been HTC's recent history, the 1800MaH battery in the phone might be a tad too light. Of course, Windows Phone 8 is installed.

October 21st is less than a week away, so those of you ready to pony up the cash to reserve the HTC Windows Phone 8X from Best Buy should get their financial affairs in order. Microsoft is holding a coming out event on October 29th for Windows Phone 8 and we should see the devices released early in November.
