The long awaited entry level Windows Phone 8 handset, the HTC 8S, is now available in India at a price point of Rs. 19,359. Online retailer Saholic has now listed the handset as available. The HTC 8S follows the 8X which has been quite a popular handset partly due to the lack of competition in the WP8 segment.
The smartphone is powered by a 1 Ghz dual core processor and is coupled with 512MB of RAM. A 4″ SLCD panel with WVGA resolution can be seen up front while the back houses the 5MP camera with LED flash. Connectivity options include 3G, WiFI, Bluetooth. Like most HTC phones, the 8S too is equipped with Beats Audio which boosts audio quality. Unlike the 8X, the 8S has a memory card slot to increase the inbuilt 8GB of storage. We’ve talked in-depth about Windows Phone 8 previously and feel that it is finally a mature OS and is worth taking a look at. At Rs. 19359, the HTC 8S makes for a compelling deal.
