HTC Windows Phone 8S is not coming to US!

HTC Windows Phone 8S was expected on the US market as a slightly lower and less-featured but cheapest version of HTC 8X. Nevertheless HTC announced through Engadget that the company has no plans to introduce HTC Windows Phone 8 handset in the US Market.

In September this year HTC announced the launch of HTC Windows Phone 8S for October. While US enthusiasts were still waiting for official information on pricing and global availability, HTC has confirmed with an 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.”

Speculations says the reason for this market extension delay is that US carriers are not accepting Windows Phone 8S, because of Microsoft prioritization on testing first the chipset in the 8X handset, Lumia 820 and 920 phones (Qualcomm 8960), over testing the Qualcomm 8227 chipset available in the 8S handset.

Despite this, it is possible that in long term, one or more US based operators to carry Windows Phone 8S. Most likely the handset will be imported unlocked by those who really want it or will be purchased free of contract from places like Amazon and Walmart. This might be a good moment for the WP8 Nokia market, as the tendency of Windows phone users will probably be to buy the also popular model Nokia Lumia 920.With its effort concentrated on its flagship Windows Phone 8X, perhaps HTC company is trying to confront Apple, by making only one high range device available.

Also to be mentioned for the US WP8 users is that Verizon’s HTC Windows Phone 8X is sell unlocked, being compatible with any micro SIM you would want to use from carriers around the globe.

As for technical specifications, HTC Windows Phone 8S has a super 4inch LCD, 512MB of RAM, dual core Snap Dragon S4 Processor at 1 GHZ, four gigabytes of internal memory with the possibility of storage expand by a micro SD card slot. So you can run games and applications, watch images and video at WVGA resolution.
