Rumor: HTC Windows Phone 8X price to be £350 on Three UK

An anonymous tipster has reached out to GSMArena to shed some light on what the upcoming HTC Windows Phone 8X may cost on Three UK. After taking a photo of the upcoming prices for Three UK's line-up, at the top you can spot the HTC Windows Phone 8X going for £349.99 as a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) phone, £50 cheaper than Amazon UK's pre-order price of £399.

Converting to US dollars gives you an outright price of $564 for HTC's flagship launch Windows Phone 8 smartphone, which is cheaper than both the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in Europe. Nokia's devices are said to be priced at €599 (US$771) and €499 (US$643) respectively, which at this stage makes HTC's offering considerably cheaper than the comparable Lumia 820.

Of course the HTC 8X will also be available on a number of plans at Three UK, which you can see in the full price list. Keep in mind that these are not confirmed prices, and could change before the prices are officially announced closer to the Windows Phone 8 launch on October 29th.

This price is Pay As You Go, locked to 3 with a minimum of £10 top up. So it's not the sim free price. Lumia 920 has been spotted for £470 unlocked incl VAT (20%)

I would not be surprised if the 920 goes for $99 on 24 month contract in the US

It may as well be SIM free. Its pay as you go and I am sure you'll be able to unlock and your not tired into a contract.

If this really is £350 I cant wait to see what the price of the 8S will be I really want that phone!

Unless Lumia drops to 450, i will buy htc

No, just No! Lumia 920 is beyond all smartphones in features and should be priced accordingly. So if you want to go htc then so be it or Buy a cheaper Nokia(820) that's comparable to HTC offering.
