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 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.
The Windows Phone 8X will be coming to T-Mobile and Verizon as well with T-Mobile confirming the release date for November 14th and Verizon starting to take pre-orders starting at 1AM EST tonight.
AT&T will be the only carrier to offer the Limelight Yellow version of the Windows Phone 8X, at least for now.
