That’s half the amount that Verizon has been asking for this phone until now, so it’s a pretty good offer if you’re willing to go the WP8 route for your smartphone needs.
However, choosing not to get this device at Big Red itself, but at a third party retailer, yet still with a Verizon contract, will net you even bigger savings.
Right now you can find the HTC 8X for Verizon at Amazon for $49.99 (for new customers only), and at Best Buy for the same low price – yet in this case for both new and existing customers (upgraders). The 8X was free at Best Buy for a limited time about a month ago, but $50 isn’t too bad either, considering that you are getting one of the highest-end Windows Phones ever made.
The HTC 8X has a 4.3-inch 720p HD Super LCD2 touchscreen, an 8 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and 1080p Full HD video recording, a front-facing 2.1 MP camera with Full HD recording too, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 16 GB of storage space, 1 GB of RAM, all the usual connectivity options (including LTE support of course), and a 1,800 mAh battery.
