HTC 8S revealed
Here is the lower end version of the two Windows Phone 8 devices that HTC revealed today, where it is simply known as the HTC 8S (some might even think that the naming convention makes this twice the smartphone that the iPhone 4S is, but bad jokes aside, let us get to the situation at hand). The HTC 8S will be a device that targets the mid-range market, and it might be a good starting point for those who want to get acquainted with the Windows Phone platform.
The HTC 8S is by far and large the lesser of the two devices, where it has a simple 4″ display which runs at a relatively paltry 800 × 480 pixels resolution, while the camera at the back will capture 5-megapixel shots thanks to its 35mm lens that has a maximum f/2.8 aperture, with a processor that runs at a mere 1GHz (as offered by Qualcomm, of course). Still, the HTC 8S comes in a rather fine two tone design, and it might just be the thing for folks who want something less fruity after experiencing Apple’s iPhone for four generations already. It will run on Windows Phone 8 and supports 4G LTE connectivity as offered by AT&T and Verizon in the US from November onwards.
