HTC Windows Phone 8X and 8S Devices Steal the WP8 Spotlight

Finally companies are pulling their fingers out. If companies want to take on the likes of Apple they need to follow in the tracks of Nokia and HTC. Use of better designs, better use of colour integration, better UI's, better quality materials and more eye candy like.

Black and white designs are fading away. Lets hope to expect more colour to be used from now on. Obvious the message from Nokia is being heard loud and clear by others that using unique colours brings more attention to their products better than mono colours do.

Nokia became the best mobile phone company in the world in the 90's because they allowed multi colour changeable tops. Nintendo did the same with the Gameboy Pocket and Dell embraced uniqueness with colours and designs :)

If Microsoft could pull their manufactures and design teams together they might be a force to be reckoned with.
