The 2.1 MP front-facing camera is also able to record 1080p HD, and uses a special ultra-wide angle 88-degree lens so that it can fit up to four people in-frame simultaneously.

HTC seems to have inked an agreement with Microsoft to make the 8X the “signature handset” of Windows Phone 8 and we wonder how this would go down with Nokia.
