HTC have established a great reputation for producing superb Android smartphones such as the HTC One X. The company are now turning their attentions to the Windows market by releasing two phones running on the impressive new Windows 8 OS. The showpiece model in the new line up is the new HTC 8X which looks set to give the latest Nokia Lumia devices a run for their money.
Windows mobile OS has always been an impressive platform but has never attracted the number of users that more established software such as Android and iOS have manged to amass. The format has been steadily growing however and the newest version is by far the most impressive edition to date and is sure to grab the attention of phone users currently running on other platforms. Nokia have had a bit of a strangle hold on the Windows market but Windows 8 seems to have attracted some more big names towards the format with the biggest one being HTC. Already boasting popular handsets such as the HTC One X and S the company are hoping the new 8X and 8S devices prove just as big a hit with consumers.
HTC traditionally produce handsets that all look quite similar but the new HTC 8X is quite a step away from the design of phones like the One X. The pebble like design is no longer present and the company have opted for a more angular handset that looks very modern and not dissimilar to Nokia Lumia phones. Specification wise the new 8X is packing enough great features to become a sure fire success with Windows fans. An HD 4.3 inch display can produce a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and an iPhone 5 beating pixel density. The dual core processor is also very powerful at 1.5Ghz and will ensure that the phone can easily handle the demanding live tiles used by the interface on the operating system.
2012 has already been a great year for HTC thanks to phones like the HTC One X and the end quarter of the year should see the companies success continue with the new Windows devices like the 8X.
