HTC Windows phones hit Telstra, Optus
blog We’ve more or less known about these launches for a while, but today HTC finally confirmed the details of its Windows Phone 8 launches in Australia. There’s two new models on offer here, both looking especially spiffy. The HTC Windows Phone 8X (pictured above) is the top-end model. We previewed it on Delimiter a month or so back and were quite positive about it broadly, pending support for 4G speeds, which HTC has subsequently confirmed. The HTC Windows Phone 8S (pictured in the second shot in the gallery below) is the lesser model, but still competitive in terms of its specs and design, although it doesn’t support 4G. And, of course, you’re all out of luck if you want to go with Vodafone. Availability and pricing information below:
“Availability: The Windows Phone 8X and Windows Phone 8S by HTC will be available starting from December across multiple carriers.
Pricing: The Windows Phone 8S by HTC will be available with Optus from 1 December, 2012 for $0 upfront on the $35 Optus Plan (minimum total cost over 24 months is $840).
The Windows Phone 8X by HTC will be available with Telstra online from 4 December and in-store from 11 December.
Consumer customers can purchase the 8X on the $60 Every Day Connect™ Plan plus a $5 monthly handset repayment over 24 months after using an included MRO Bonus. This plan offers $600 worth of standard national calls and MMS plus unlimited text messaging to standard Australian numbers and 1GB of data for use in Australia. Min cost over 24 months is $1,560 ($65 per month). Online sales will be available on 4 December by visiting: www.telstra.com.au/8x.
Business customers can purchase the 8X on the $60 Business Performance Handset Plan plus a $5 monthly handset repayment over 24 months which offers $600 worth of standard national calls and MMS plus unlimited text to standard Australian numbers and 1GB of data for use in Australia. Min cost over 24 months is $1,560. Online sales will be available on 4 December by visiting: www.telstra.com/business/shop.”
Update: Vodafone has the 8X as well. Statement from HTC this week: The Windows Phone 8X by HTC will be available with Vodafone for $0 upfront on the $60 plan over 24-months.
