HTC Desire X, Sony Xperia J Get Priced, Open Pre-Orders


The IFA in Berlin just provided us with our latest volley of all-new smartphone and tablet hardware to be on the watch for. While we’re still waiting for full details on many of those models, if you were considering picking any up, we just got some new pricing info on a couple of those devices.

Sony announced a handful of new Xperia models last week, including the Xperia J. It’s not the highest-end of Sony’s new handsets by far, but it should offer a lower-price alternative for users interested in getting that latest Xperia look without breaking the bank. Retailer Clove is expecting to get its first stocks of the model the last week of October, where it will sell (pre-tax) for the equivalent of about $250.

HTC’s Desire X is another of these lower-end models designed with costs savings in mind; it’s got a dual-core 1GHz processor and four-inch WVGA screen. This one should be landing a bit before the Sony, with Clove looking for it to arrive in late September. When it does so, it will sell for what works out to just about $300 pre-tax and off-contract.

Check out our hands-on looks at both smartphones in the videos below.
