Pre-registrations have opened up for the HTC 8X, HTC 8S and Lumia 820 at UK retailer Carphone Warehouse. On its website, all three Windows Phone 8 handsets are stated to be arriving soon, with November 2012 as an estimated month of release. No pricing has been provided as-of-yet.
The UK retailer has displayed strong support for Windows Phone since the platform launched in 2010. Starting up Windows Phone 8 hype, the Carphone Warehouse previously detailed how it plans to offer a number of Apollo smartphones for consumers to choose from.
As well as the absence of pricing, we're not sure what colours will be made available, though looking at images used for the Windows Phone registration pages, the Lumia 820 is displayed in both black and white variants, while the 8X is in black and 8S is the attractive blue. We'd expect the retailer the stock most (if not all) choices.
Phones4u also have the same devices available for pre-registration, as well as the Lumia 920 and Samsung ATIV S.
