We just got our hands on the new HTC 8X Windows Phone from AT&T and it makes a nice first impression. Launched today with the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820, we are hearing supplies are limited for the new HTC Windows Phone.

This was the only 8X my local AT&T Store received and I was told more are due tomorrow and Monday.  You also have the option to order the 8X online over at AT&T's website.

As far as the phone itself is concerned, the 8X is an impressive Windows Phone. It measures 5.21 x 2.61 x .39 inches and weighs 4.6 ounces. The 8X feels comfortable in the hand with its rounded back and compared to the Lumia 920 it feels narrower but not shorter.  While I'm not a big fan of the purple theme, the screen has a bit of pop to it (in a nice sort of way) and is nicely responsive to the touch.  The matte finish feels smooth in the hand and I really like the flush buttons that give the 8X a low profile.

Overall, the HTC 8X makes a very nice first impression. From build quality to design HTC has produced an impressive Windows Phone in the 8X. We'll take the 8X out for a test drive and get a full review on the site shortly along with other posts to give everyone a better feel for the 8X.
