Windows Phone 8S by HTC arrives at last – Now on Three

Another Windows Phone for you this Friday morning – the Windows Phone 8S by HTC. It’s now available to grab in Three stores and online. The 8S has a 4″ screen, 5 megapixel camera, dual-core 1GHz CPU and, of course, runs the new Windows Phone 8 OS. It has 4GB of storage with a microSD card slot, GPS, 3.5mm audio port, Bluetooth 3.1, WiFi, sensors and a 1700mAh battery.

Inside you also get the Beats Audio technology for making those tunes sound exactly as the artist intended, and Three are offering it for free on plans costing just £17 per month on the Essential Internet 100 plan. That’ll give you 5000 texts, 100 anytime minutes and 250MB of internet without the surprise of out-of-bundle charges. If you pay £19 per month then you get the phone free but on the Ultimate Internet 100 plan you’ll get all-you-can-eat data with those 100 minutes and 5000 texts.

If you’re looking to go Pay As You Go then it’ll cost £179.99 (we’re not sure why the press release says more) plus a top-up. As an example, the All in One 15 is £15 and that’ll give you 30 days of all-you-can-eat data, 300 minutes and 3000 texts. Here’s the Pay As You Go link.
