HTC confirms the HTC 8S is not coming to the USA

November 30, 2012 2 Comments

Remember the lower end little brother to the HTC 8X, the HTC 8s? Well it turns out that today HTC announced that this model will not be making its way to the U.S. Although this phone will not be missed by many Windows Phone 8 enthusiast, it will be missing its mark in the ever expanding prepaid market where Windows Phones are hard to find. Official Statement:

 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.

I’m one to agree with many Windows Phone supporters that believe that they should still bring this phone out on smaller prepaid carriers. That would finally get the Windows Phone 8 OS into the prepaid market and in doing so expand the options of  first time smartphone users everywhere…MBGW
