Deal: £180 HTC 8X Windows Phone 8 smartphone

After Samsung and Nokia with the ATIV S and the Lumia 920, it looks like HTC is also clearing out its top of the range Windows Phone 8 handset, the 8X, possibly ahead of the launch of a new flagship model.

Amazon is currently selling the latter for a mere £180, around half its original selling price more than a year ago and roughly what you'd pay for a Nokia Lumia 820.

The device was introduced last year and comes with a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.5GHz with 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, Beats audio sound technology, a 4.7in Super LCD HD display, a rear 8-megapixel camera with a dedicated ImageChip and an F/2.0 aperture, a 2-megapixel Ultrawide front-facing camera, Windows Phone 8 OS and a cool blue finish.

What it lacks though are Nokia's exclusive applications like Nokia Music or Nokia Mix radio. Note that the HTC 8X is not 4G enabled. You can read our review of the HTC 8X Windows Phone smartphone here.
