Clove sporting wide selection of Windows Phones, some available for pre-order
Lots and lots of Windows Phones
UK retailer Clove is a strong supporter of Windows Phone, if its product listings are anything to go by. Not only is the retailer sporting the Samsung ATIV S, which we covered previously, but Clove also now has the HTC 8X, HTC 8S, Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 available online.
Clove has supported Windows Phone by stocking previous generation hardware too, it's good to see retailers continuing to take stock and push the platform. As the ATIV S, HTC 8X and 8S are available to pre-order already, Clove has price points set at £442, £399 and £224 (all including VAT) respectively.
The company expects stock to arrive for the ATIV S by late October, while the HTC 8X is slated for November 2nd and 8S on November 15th. Both Lumias are still yet to be confirmed. Each and every device is unlocked, and 4G is currently absent from the specification sheets - though we're unsure if it will be added at a later point on selected hardware. We've reached out to Clove for more details.
Samsung's ATIV S
So what colours of the rainbow will be available? check our compiled list below. Note that colours listed on the product pages are subject to change until release, but we'd imagine Clove would be able to stock most (if not) all the variants they've listed so far.
- HTC 8X
- HTC 8S
- Lumia 920
- Lumia 820
Should you be looking at making a purchase, the Samsung ATIV S and two HTC Windows Phones are available for pre-order. No word on the Lumias yet. Other UK retailers, including Phones4u and Carphone Warehouse, are expected to be present at the Windows Phone launch with a number of handsets to promote. There's choice at least.
