AT&T Windows Phone 8X Release Date Confirmed for November 9

The AT&T Windows Phone 8X by HTC release date has been confirmed to be November 9th, just a few days after the carrier revealed that it would be coming to shelves before the Thanksgiving holiday.


AT&T confirmed the good news today saying that the phone will be released on November 9th, tomorrow, and it will be arriving in-stores and online for purchase once Friday arrives.

All three models of the device will be available to pick up tomorrow though the 8 GB Limelight-colored Windows Phone 8X and 16 GB California Blue models will apparently be shipping out to customers next week.

AT&T’s Windows Phone 8X arrives tomorrow.


AT&T’s 8GB model of the Windows Phone 8X will only come in California Blue and Limelight Yellow and will sell for $99.99 on-contract. Those looking for more storage space will have another option in the 16GB California Blue model which will retail for $199.99 on-contract. Keep in mind, neither version of the phone has a microSD card slot, so users will be stuck with the on board storage.


AT&T’s Windows Phone 8X will join the Nokia Lumia 920 as flagship Windows Phone 8 devices on the carrier’s network. The Windows Phone 8X features a 4.3-inch 720p display and uses a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor. The company has included an ImageChip in the Windows Phone 8X so it can take better photos with the 8MP rear-facing camera as well as the ultra-wide-angle 2.1MP front-facing camera.

It will also, of course, be running Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system which is its latest and greatest and one that will be replacing Windows Phone 7. Its many features can be seen in the video below.

AT&T will be the only carrier to offer the Limelight Yellow version of the Windows Phone 8X, at least for now.
