When are the windows phone 8 handsets going to be available from you?

Posted from Facebook
It appears that I can buy a HTC 8x from Phones4U, on the Vodafone network now, but I can;t get it direct from vodafone. What gives?

Hi there

 

Companies like Phones 4 U buy their own handsets and bundle them with contracts which is why they have stock and Vodafone don't.  You just need to keep an eye on the Coming Soon page which is where Vodafone will post the updates about handsets that they are going to launch.

So you have no plans to stock them at all?

Re: When are the windows phone 8 handsets going to be available from you?

I contacted Vodafone last night as I want to upgrade to the HTC 8x, I was first told that Vodafone would not be selling it at all. The advisor then checked with his manager and then said they will be getting the HTC 8x but not until Jan 2013!

 

This seems like a very long wait when other phone companies are offering the phone now!

So basically, there's no plan for vodafone to carry the flagship Nokia 920 even though they ARE going to have the HTC 8X? That's very disappointing indeed. :smileysad:

That really is fabulous news! I just hope that they are not going to want too hefty a price for it on a 2 year contract, considering that it's available for $99 on a 2 year contract in the States.

 

Will have to wait and see I guess!

Hi AlexPowley,

 

No details confirmed just yet but you can subscribe for news as it happens using this Coming Soon page. I was lucky enough to spend a few days down at Microsoft, HTC and Nokia headquarters the week before last to shoot our marketing videos for the devices and I'm really impressed with the speed, capabilities and customisation on the ones I play with. Now to decide which I want to go for on my next upgrade! :smileyvery-happy:

 

Cheers, Ben
