Stay tuned for our HTC NYC event coverage

Stay tuned for our HTC NYC event coverage
In only a few hours, all eyes will turn to HTC as the manufacturer has something very special in stock for us. Are you excited as much as we are? You should be as the company will be unveiling its latest Windows Phone 8 handsets at its media event in New York City. Or at least that is what rumors are leading us to believe, not to mention that unequivocal teaser HTC posted just this morning.

The suspects are a trio of WP8 smartphones targeting different market segments: a high-end flagship with a 4.7-inch screen, a 4.3-inch mid-ranger, and a 4-inch handset that would presumably be the most affordable among the bunch. If leaked information is to be trusted, these handsets will be known as the HTC 8X, HTC 8S, and HTC 8V respectively.

But enough with the speculation already. It is time to finally know what Windows Phone  8 smartphones HTC has been working on, so stay tuned for our coverage as we'll be delivering all the latest tidbits as the event unfolds. Also, do not hesitate to follow our liveblog, which will go live shortly prior to the event's beginning. Speaking of which, the action starts at 11:00AM EST (8:00AM Pacific).

Maybe it's a hint on HTC's new product being able to distort time? If it's affordable I'm in!

For those hoping for WP 8 homeruns, this is exciting. 2 Nokia's, at least one Samsung, and maybe three HTC's at launch on three carriers in the US is a great set of options. I am very "iffy" on HTC. There is a lot I like about them- their long standing relationship with Windows from Win Mo to the launch of WP 7 and 8. I love the feel of their devices, solid and a little wieght to them. We have liked the Titan 2, our friend with the ONE X really likes it, and the Radar is a good device. But, boy the original Titan was a dud. I had to return it 4 times before finally getting the T2. And support for their devices - Android and WP- have been real spotty. Or just plain poor. I am interested, but can't see how they are anything but the third dawg in the race for a WP 8 with me.

With the amount of choices coming from the different camps there is no excuse for WP this time around. Last chance
