It’s Official: HTC Windows Phone 8S Won’t Arrive In The US

Consumers living in the US who plan to get the upcoming HTC Windows Phone 8S will be disappointed as the model won’t be sold in the US market. In an announcement made by the company they said that “The Windows Phone 8X by HTC is our signature Windows Phone available at AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless in the U.S. With our focus on the Windows Phone 8X by HTC, the Windows Phone 8S is not currently planned for distribution in the U.S. market.”

It seems that HTC only want its premium model, the HTC 8X, to be sold in the US. This will also be the only model of HTC running on Windows Phone 8 that will officially enter the US market.  There might still be a chance though that the 8S will make its way through the market as an unlocked and unsubsidized smartphone targeting those looking for a low budget device running on the latest OS.

The HTC 8S will be making its way instead into the Asian and European market. Compared to the 8X this model has a less powerful processor, lower resolution, weak rear camera and no front camera.

Despite lacking the punch of its bigger brother this model will appeal to those looking for a cheap device to test out the new Windows Phone 8.  Based on what we have seen so far it has a sturdy and attractive design.
