Sprint, along with Microsoft and HTC, announced the new Windows Phone 8 device, the HTC 8XT. The 8XT is one of the first Windows Phone 8 devices for the Now Network and like the critically acclaimed HTC One, features dual front speakers with HTC’s Boomsound. While it doesn’t feature the same aluminum unibody frame of the One, it does feature a smooth, soft touch finish on a slick tapered design.
The 8XT is equipped with an f/2.0 8-megapixel camera (with auto focus and an LED flash) which is great for low light images, as well as a 1.6-megapixel front facing camera. It’s powered by a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and it has 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage and microSD card support. Sadly, there’s not 1080p display here, just a 4.3-inch display, which they say is “crisp.”
The HTC 8XT will be available on Sprint later this summer for just $99 (with a new 2-year contract).
