Those hankering for the two-toned HTC One X handset designed by Cushnie et Ochs may finally get a chance to grab it. HTC previously announced that it had no plans of releasing the design for mass consumption. The phone was only made available exclusively to just 150 people who attended New York Fashion Week in Milk Studios, New York City.
It seems, however, that one of the attendees decided to give up the phone and sell it on eBay. The seller’s account name is 2012greatwhite86, and he or she has put the device up for grabs with a starting bid of $360. It is highly likely, however, that interested consumers would need to shell out a lot more than this amount when the auction ends on September 17.
According to the item description, the black-and-white-shelled phone being auctioned is “brand new never used” and comes in its “original packaging.” It has a storage capacity of 16GB and comes with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and a 1800 mAh battery. The phone furthermore has a 4.7 inch LCD color touchscreen with a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. It is also packed with an 8-megapixel camera with a large aperture of f/2.0. This camera is likewise capable of taking high-resolution images with 1920 x 1080 pixels. Among the preinstalled software on the One X are Dropbox and Polaris, as well as the recently-launched Watts Up Photo App by photographer Ben Watts. The handset is unlocked and may be used on any carrier and includes other features as Bluetooth and GPS.
That said, those who do not want to avail of this offer may instead join the Pin To Win contest that HTC is sponsoring on Pinterest. The contest simply asks users to follow HTC Mobile on Pinterest, repin one of the images from their contest board, and add the link to the user’s repin in the original image. At stake is one of the coveted two-tone phones.
