New Windows phones on preorder, cost less than Samsung and Apple superphones
HTC's flagship Windows Phone 8 handsets have been priced and are on pre-order at UK's Clove.
The trusty e-tailer has stepped up to the plate with SIM-free prices that's substantially lower than what it's offering for the Samsung Galaxy S III and Apple iPhone 5.
The 4.3-inch dual-core 8X is the hero of the two, and it's going for £399.99 - stacking up to a £529 Apple iPhone 4S (16GB) and £462Samsung Galaxy S III, also at Clove.
Meanwhile the slightly smaller One S (pictured) is going for an even more wallet-friendly £225.
Can Microsoft gives its OS the push it needs - and deserves - by sheer price cutting? We'll have a better idea when the handsets launch in early November. For now, check out our full hands-on preview.
