HTC Windows Phone 8X gets some tanning time while being tested in San Francisco
The HTC Windows Phone 8X appears to have been undergoing some type of carrier testing in sunny San Francisco, according to a photograph. If we didn't know better, we would say that the three units of the handset along with an older Samsung model, were out sunning. Seriously though, this could be part of a signal strength test with each unit containing a different radio.

The HTC Windows Phone 8X has a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 screen with resolution of 720 x 1280 which works out to a very impressive pixel density of 342ppi. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor. The Adreno 225 crunches the graphics and 1GB of RAM is aboard. The HTC Windows Phone 8X sports 16GB of native memory and a rear-facing 8MP camera that captures video in 1080p at 30fps. A 2MP camera on the front takes self-portraits and an 1800mAh battery keeps the lights on.

T-Mobile has already started taking names and email addresses from those interested in the device. According to Amazon U.K., the phone will ship on November 8th. As far as unsubsidized pricing is concerned, we've seen a range between $650 USD and $863 USD from Clove and Amazon UK respectively.
