    When you pick up these phones you'll recognize that you've never held a phone like it.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:31:21 PM
    Says the phone has a solid, premium feel, Croyle says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:31:50 PM
    Talks about the "micro-drill holes" as small touches that make the phone feel special, Croyle says.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:31:52 PM
    Beats Audio is on board...but does anyone care? Not me.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:31:58 PM
    The Windows Phone 8X and 8S should feel like a family, he says.

  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:32:15 PM
    The 8S is smaller, which gives it a more playful feeling, with a colorful strip, Croyle says.
  • sarahtew 9/19/2012 3:32:17 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:32:25 PM
    It's a powerful phone with a unique and colorful character.
  • Roger Cheng 9/19/2012 3:32:42 PM
    Apologies for the slow updates and photos...we had a glitch with the connection for a moment there. We're back online...for now.

    The slim profile of the Windows Phone 8X

  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:33:39 PM
    HTC says the 8S is "playful" but I think they felt more toy-like...but hey toys can be cool.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:34:28 PM
    If there's one thing that HTC does really well, it's design, man.

    Motorola is catching up though...and Samsung, well they're thin but kinda blah in my view.

    Now they're talking about the HTC imaging chip on 8X.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:37:46 PM
    1080p HD video capture on the front camera.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:38:11 PM
    Also has a wide angle lens to capture more of the action.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:38:55 PM
    Where we go, Beats Audio....now with more power to the headphone!
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:39:24 PM
    The Windows Phone 8X has it's own amp, that's pretty cool!
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:39:44 PM
    Hey folks, Roger's system is down! Stay tuned.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:40:12 PM
    HTC President Jason Mackenzie takes the stage.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:40:51 PM
    He says HTC needed to deliver a wild design to stand out from the crowd.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:41:19 PM
    HTC and Microsoft working to deliver a joint marketing campaign.

  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:41:42 PM
    These phones will be the flagship WP8 handsets. Wow!
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:42:00 PM
    So long Nokia :(
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:42:40 PM
    The 8X and 8S will ship on T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon! In the US!
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:43:08 PM
    Coming in November, no pricing though.
  • sarahtew 9/19/2012 3:43:16 PM

    OK, folks, the press conference is now over!
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:44:24 PM
    People running to see the phones! In the meantime check out my hands-on reviews of both the 8X and 8S.
  • Brian Bennett 9/19/2012 3:45:17 PM
    Thanks for tuning in and apologies again for Roger's flaky connection. See you at the next one!
  • Kent German 9/19/2012 3:45:50 PM
    And that's a wrap. Thanks for joining us everyone. For more on the 8X and 8S, Brian has hands-on analysis, photos, and video. Check them out on CNET. The links are at the top of this blog.
  • wero 9/19/2012 3:46:23 PM
    So no news for Android devices??
  • Kent German 9/19/2012 3:46:46 PM
    @wero: Unfortunately, not. Today was a Windows Phone 8 day.
  • Silas Carson 9/19/2012 3:47:47 PM
    Will this be available to those of us who use T-Mobile or will be passed over again?
