You can’t seem to swing a cat this month without it smashing into something Windows 8-based, as Microsoft’s multi-format operating system breaks cover on October 26. Not to be outdone by its many tile-based rivals, HTC has a new Windows Phone 8 handset on the way, and very nice it is, too. The Qualcomm 1.5GHz dual core processor means plenty of speedy scrolling and the 720p HD 4.3-inch display boasts an impressive 341ppi. Of course, Dr Dre’s Beats Audio makes an appearance, there’s an eight-meg cam and it comes in brightly coloured varieties – a trend that looks like it’s here to stay.
