HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S official hands-on and promo videos surface

HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S official hands-on and promo videos surface
The HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S have just been officially released and they are all about simplicity and more great colors coming to the Windows Phone arena. Nokia might have started it, but with Microsoft iterating the idea of colors and tiles in its Surface lineup of tablets, we can’t really blame HTC for going the same route.

Moreover, the Taiwanese phone maker has done so brilliantly with a refined design in light and not too thick body with nice rounded edges.

While HTC has subtly complimented Microsoft for its work on Windows Phone and explained how it was inspired by the simple colors of the tiles, the Windows Phone team in turn has posted the first official video hands of the HTC 8X and HTC 8S explaining the benefits of having Beats Audio and the great camera on the 8X.

How is Nokia going to feel about this promo for HTC’s new devices from Microsoft? The Finns have already shown some swagger saying HTC is only “tactically re-branding,” not innovating. Check out the videos below and let us know: what do you think?
