We previously covered UK retailer Unlocked Mobiles who has the HTC 8X listed for just £399. Now we've got Amazon UK who has published the product page for the recently announced Windows Phone, and the price tag is a steep one - £531.43 (SIM-free).

We're yet to see final pricing which will be available near or after Windows Phone 8 launches and the new Apollo hardware is released to consumers, but at least we can have an idea as to what we'll be looking at in the near future. The product page also states November 8, 2012 as the release date.

Just checked with Apple's UK's pricing. Maybe it's Amazon marking things up a bit, but sorry HTC, if you can afford to drop the price, you're going to have to compete with the iPhone or the Galaxy S3 and Lumia 920 when that gets official pricing.

I think it's Amazon just slapping on a high price since there's no official prices yet. I bet it's more like 399.
