December's Hottest Selling Smartphones: T-Mobile's #3 — HTC Windows Phone 8X
The HTC 8X, which debuted in November, makes it two straight months in T-Mobile's No. 3 spot. It sold for $150, but a special deal let some lucky customers pick one up for free if they signed a new, two-year service agreement. The 8X, a phone that runs on Microsoft's Windows 8 platform, will be interesting to watch. Of the first fleet of Windows phones available last spring, only the Nokia Lumia 900 made the top three at any of the carriers (it was an AT&T exclusive), and it only hung on for three months. This winter's batch of devices have benefitted from more buzz and some solid marketing from both Microsoft and the manufacturers.
