Removing any doubt about the pricing of the HTCâ€™s Windows Phone 8 range, Expansys have now also weighed in by putting up pre-orders for the handsets.
The higher-end HTC 8xÂ will be retailing for a pretty cheap Â£399.99, while the lower-end HTC 8S will be a ground-breaking Â£224.99 at launch, which makes it cheaper than many Windows Phone 7.5 handsets such as the HTCÂ Titan already on Expansysâ€™s website.
With rumours that the Nokia Lumia 920 will also be pretty cheap, the pricing may indicate a new angle of attack by Microsoft on the Android market, and one which most consumers can understand without needing any explanation.

Thanks Oliver for the tip.
