Verizon may not be getting the Nokia Lumia 920 on launch but they’re not going to let the customers miss out on Windows Phone 8 by including the HTC Phone 8X in their line-up. However, if you’re Verizon subscriber who decided to jump on the Windows Phone 8 bandwagon by ordering the HTC Phone 8X, then you may be getting a little antsy as to why your device hasn’t shipped yet.
Apparently, the carrier is experiencing some delays, according to a WPCentral report:
“Verizon is still yet to begin shipping HTC 8X orders, and according to emails received by a handful of our readers who have kindly forwarded copies to us, there’s a slight delay. The carrier is stocking both the HTC 8X and Lumia 822 Windows Phone 8 handsets in its smartphone line-up (with the Samsung Odyssey coming in the future).”
In an effort to appease their customers and to thank them for waiting patiently, Verizon is offering affected HTC Phone 8X fans a generous 30% discount on any case in its store.
The HTC Phone 8X, as well as the Nokia Lumia 822, goes on sale in most stores starting tomorrow.
