PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Bloomberg: "Microsoft, which has tightly controlled the number of ARM-based devices it is supporting at first to ensure quality, opted not to work with HTC after initial discussions with the company, said two people familiar with the matter. The world's largest software maker decided HTC didn't have the sales volume needed and had less tablet experience than some of the other vendors it could choose to work with for the first round of devices, the people said." HTC was the first company to build a Microsoft-powered smartphone. Now, they're not allowed to build Windows 8 tablets.

According to Anandtech, the AT&T/Rogers One X (actually the One XL, as it supports LTE) only has 16 GB of storage.

Which is entirely useless to me because I'm located in New Zealand hence the reason I provided a link to Telecom NZ and the reason why my profile states that I am located in New Zealand. What AT&T, Rogers, Peters or Freds has to offer is entirely immaterial to the conversation.
