HTC 8X could be the official name of its upcoming Windows Phone 8 handset codenamed Accord
Leaked manual of the upcoming Windows Phone 8 device from HTC, dubbed so far the Accord, refers to the handset as the HTC Windows Phone 8X. Now we don't know if that will be the full name, as it seems rather long, but HTC 8X has all the chances to be a good title.

Of course, it will have to clash with all the "X"s out there, like 4X HD, XL, One X, and other Android reincarnations of that letter, but overall it is a good indication of an HTC flagship (think One X), but with WP8 on board.

The leaked manual shows that the handset will sport a dedicated camera button, and that oh-so-important LED notification light some people can't live without on their handsets - we have to admit that it is always handy to have.

A little wordy. Seems that "Keep It Simple Stupid" idea is lost on device makers these days. (ATIV.... I am looking at you!!) HTC 8X, like what PA has for the link to the device above, is simple, easy to remember, and fits in line with the "ONE X" naming system. Then just simply follow the naming system down the line.

they should keep the letters so that it will be destinguish by people if its high end, mid range, low end or flagship (like nokia, 1-3 being low end, 5-7 being midrange, 8 being boundery high end and 9 being flagship)

All WP have camera buttons. It's a standard, something most Android OEM neglected except Sony.
