HTC 8XT is up on Sprint’s support page, exclusive apps part of the package
It is completely understandable that Windows Phone focus is on the Nokia Lumia 1020 coming to AT&T in a few days and the Lumia 925 which you can get now on T-Mobile. Sprint is picking up a couple models too and it looks like the HTC 8XT is in the gates nearly ready to go.

Even compared to other mainline Windows Phone devices available in the US, the 8XT is not a spec star, but one of the cool things about Windows Phone is that you do not need an octa-core CPU for smooth operation. Plus, HTC is known for good quality hardware so owners are going to have a positive experience.

Like other Windows Phone devices, the customization of Android is not present, but thankfully you can personalize things quite a bit with different sized live tiles and exclusive apps from the manufacturers as well.

HTC’s forte is BoomSound on newer devices along with Beats Audio. Sprint has a couple extras thrown in too, like Sprint TV which allows you to watch live television on your device. News, sport and other entertainment are available, some are included, others cost a monthly fee. Sprint Music Plus is also included, serving as an all-in-one music store for songs, ringtones and ringback tones.

Scout by Telenav rounds up the mix providing turn-by-turn GPS navigation. If that does not light your fire, remember you can also download and use Nokia’s HERE Drive, which is available for all Windows Phone 8 devices.  The HTC 8XT also features a multi-shot burst camera and microSD support up to 64GB.

Sprint will be ending its long running drought of Windows Phone hardware very soon. If you want to explore more about the device on Sprint, check out the source link below.
