If you were waiting for confirmation as to when you might be able to get your hands on the HTC One X in the US, circle May the 6th on your calendar. AT&T has just confirmed that this is when the flagship handset will launch, at a price of $199 (with a two year commitment.) It's the dual-core LTE version, of course, and is also the first phone to launch with Ice Cream Sandwich on the network. If you want a slice, pre-orders will be open from April 22nd, or head on down to the source link for more info.

Anyone getting this? I think I am going to eat the restocking fee and return the Nokia Lumia 900 and pick this phone up. It looks like it's going to be using the S4 Krait so performance should be awesome. :thumbsup:

If browsing experience is anything similar to the Tegra 3 version of HTC One X, I would avoid. I posted this video before showing the browsing on the Tegra 3 version. It's pretty ugly.

Fast forward to ~5:50 mark and watch til ~7:45.

Same reviewer but longer review. Fast forward to ~9:40 mark and watch to ~13:30 mark. Again, ugly stuff.

Granted the review was for the Tegra 3 version. Maybe it's corrected on the Snapdragon version. But until the browser is fixed, I wouldn't touch this.

That does look like a pretty bad problem, it's looks like the browser tries to re flow every time you zoom.

Yeah I'm gonna have to go with software bug with the HTC default browser which... I think I would use Chrome anyways or Opera if I wanted flash. Either way... it is kind of funny how AT&T got HTC to cut the CPU from quad tegra 3 to dual snapdragon (yeah yeah I know prob due to LTE). I didn't read, but it would be a pretty safe bet that AT&T cut NFC also.

The reviewer did say they tried to get around the text reflow problem by installing different browsers. He said Opera Mobile would crash when trying to load web page and Dolphin HD browser had the same text reflow problem as the stock browser.

Sounds like something an OTA can fix still. I know for certain that Opera works fine in ICS for instance.

if this is confirmed to support TMO hspa bands I may pick it up.

Has HTC gotten better with their battery life? I have had two HTC phones an both were very bad.

Yeah my last phone was an HTC and the battery life was wretched even with the aggressive battery-saving countermeasures I introduced. The only saving grace was that batteries for it were so cheap.

I believe the One X's battery is NOT removable, so it better be decent.

May 6? Just in time for people to decide not to buy it and wait for the S3...

Eh the Galaxy S3 will probably be more advanced but not by a whole lot(screen might be a bit better but 720p is awesome whether SLCD or AMOLED, and GPU performance will probably be up on the S3). The One X has all of the bells and whistles a phone needs for someone to pretty confidently buy it and use it for the long haul today. Is the GS3 even going to have a Cortex A15? I though current rumors point at a quad core A9.

This isn't going to be my phone for a long time, just until the next iPhone is released but I am excited for it!
