While HTC was not either able to give exact release date for their Windows Phone 8 handsets they have now narrowed it down to “early November”. November 2nd has been the rumored release date of the new Lumia’s since the start so in that sense this is no surprise.
I would not hold my breath for that October 21 release for Lumia 920 from AT&T that has been circulating the internet.
How about HTC 8X vs Lumia 920?
When it comes to specifications Lumia 920 simply wins. This even before we talk about the huge amount of Nokia Lumia exclusive apps.
