Hey, you. Yes, you. If you’ve already paid for and pre-ordered the HTC One X from AT&T, I want you to go to your mailbox right now and check it. There’s at least a small chance that your brand new ICS phone is waiting for you. A small number of users at Android Forums have got their phones in their hot little hands right now, two days before the AT&T launch date. That’s two days worth of playing, modding and tinkering that they wouldn’t have had otherwise.
The rest of us can pick up an AT&T One X in retail stores on Sunday, May 6th, or (if you’re not into this newfangled pre-order” business) order it straight off the AT&T website. The One X costs $199 for those who are willing to sign or renew a two-year contract, or $549 if you’d rather buy it outright. If you aren’t convinced by our quite positive review, some AT&T retail stores have demo units on display right now.
AT&T’s One X gets a couple of changes from the international version, most notably its LTE connection in addition to HSPA+. It also swaps out NVIDIA’s Tegra 3 quad-core processor for a Snapdragon S4 dual-core, and lowers the integrated storage to 16GB (still no MicroSD card). For all that it’s still one of the best phones available in the United States, so if you’ve got the money, the time and the inclination and you haven’t done so already, go pick one up on Sunday.
