HTC 8S stars in manufacturer's video
The HTC 8S is expected to be launched internationally on Tuesday. The mid-range model is going to be offered for 300 EUR ($390 USD). Looking to promote the phone, HTC has produced a video which is a 73 second feast for your eyes with the use of colors and animation that portray the HTC 8S as a fun phone, available in four vibrant colors.

The HTC 8S is equipped with a 4 inch WVGA LCD display with pixel density of 233ppi. A dual-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8627 is under the hood while the Adreno 305 takes care of graphics. 512MB of RAM is aboard along with the 4GB of native storage that can be expanded using the microSD slot on the device. The rear facing camera is 5MP with AF and it captures video in 720p. A 1700mAh battery keeps the power humming.

In the states, Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T are expected to have the handset in their respective lineups in time for the holiday shopping season.

Look pretty good to me, I might get one to replace my Nokia 800, I don't want to miss out on all the Windows Phone 8 love. Might get one when the price drops a bit, 200 euro's should be okay.

I'm afraid I won't get 200 euro's for my Lumia, the way I've treated it. I think I can please some family member with it.

Will wait to see if AT&T offers this. Wouldn't be bad if it is a ton less expensive then the Nokia offerings. I think I have used the FFC on my phones like twice, no missing one from me. Just looking to get a WP 8 to last until my contract is up. And to be dead truthful I think these are the neatest looking WP 8 offerings.....
