HTC One X+ coming to the U.S. as AT&T exclusive, quad-core Tegra 3 and LTE are on board

Wow, that didn't take long. Only hours after the HTC One X+ was unveiled officially, we now know where U.S. consumers will have the chance to get it from. AT&T just announced that it will be the exclusive U.S. carrier to offer the HTC One X+ this fall...

These exclusivity deals are a huge part of why HTC is failing right now in North America. When did HTC start thinking that putting their most wanted upcoming phones on only one carrier so that only 30% of all potential customers are available to buy them was a good idea? I've been a huge fan of HTC since I bought my first smartphone, the T-Mobile G2, but I can no longer stand behind them as they continue to make stupid decisions. This is simple economics. You try to make your product as widely available as possible, therefore giving it the greatest opportunity to reach the most hands. How hard is that to understand?

STOP WITH THE STUPID CARRIER EXCLUSIVES HTC. Geez. You wonder why you're in the red, guess what. This is it. There is a reason Moto is in the red too, people don't want carrier exclusive phones. I am looking to buy a new phone currently, and I don't plan on replacing my rezound with another HTC product due to stupid crap like this. I guess I'll just get the S3 even though it isn't my top choice.

You know AT&T is only exclusive to the name, right? Meaning, nobody can have the One X+... However, if HTC were to make the exact same phone, give it a slightly different design, and a different name, AT&T couldn't say much about it.

You know there was a long-lasting rumor about this coming to T-Mobile having stock Android. It would be apart of their G-Series and would probably be called the G3 or something. Same Tegra 3, same battery, same display, same camera, probably just a different design.

Good point. That's actually something I didn't consider. Very good possibility it could happen. For instance, One X + micro SD & bigger battery = Evo 4G LTE. In other words Evo 4G LTE > One X, if only Sprint's network wasn't garbage.

Exactly. Way too many people start bashing HTC for exclusivity when the only thing "exclusive" is the name.

So Apple releases the iPhone 5 as the successor to the iPhone 4S and people complain that it's just a marginal update (which it is). Now HTC releases the One X+ and people are drooling over it? It's also a marginal upgrade. I don't care either way, but the Apple bias by the posters on this site is ridiculous.

HTC didn't hype this phone up like it was going to change the world like Apple. The One X+ is a marginal update just as the name suggest and it's a pretty darn good one. Furthermore, HTC didn't have a whole year to come up with something new just to disappoint with a modest, marginal update at best.

Point is, the complaints are that these "marginal upgrades" should've been included on the original. Seems to only apply to Apple products and not others, but I guess I'm singling out the troll comments as opposed to the good comments like yours. Apple doesn't say they will change the world, they just say they've made the best iPhone. Which they technically have, although the high-end Android products have surpassed it. HTC doesn't hype the phone, because they don't have the machine and user base that Apple has. Like all companies, they would if they could...Do you agree?

I have always liked the One X but with only 16gb of memory available and not always having access to the cloud. Im seriously considering this to be my next phone. With 64gb who needs an SD card and with Jelly Bean on board especially project butter and a quad core processor should make this thing really fly.

I'm due for my upgrade in January, and this may be on my wish list when the time comes. My first Android phone was the little HTC Aria, which was great. I have since upgraded to the Motorola Atrix, and even though it's got much better specs, I never fell in love with it - Moto Blur, flimsy build, random reboots. Now that Motorola has kicked Atrix owners to the side of the road by not upgrading us to ICS, I'm definitely fleeing Motorola when I get the chance, and I just may go back to HTC.

It ain't the first android quad core. Galaxy note ii was the first.

They said first for AT&T. The GN2 isn't out stateside yet. One of these two will more than likely be the first.

Ive been trying to sell my Atrix 2 for a while. I never fell in love with it, the lack of development for the device really about the only plus i will say is that moto blur is getting more and more like stock android. Now im really gonna try and sell my device. I kinda regret getting rid of my Inspire. HTC makes really nice phones

Hmm i was thinking the s3 might be my next phone but this is going to make the decision tough. I prefer the design to the s3 and the specs are nice!
