For those developers out there looking for a Android development device, we ask you to stop looking and take a look at the HTC One X. This device is a powerhouse for a developer and something to be admired. We thought that our readers may want some information on the device as well as some pictures to start your mouth salivating for new technology. We want to point out to our readers that this device will be used in articles to show you how to implement the new features of the OpenSense SDK when released by HTC. This device is the cream of the crop and what better device to flaunt when developing for Android running Ice Cream Sandwhich with the awesomely revamped HTC Sense overlay.
First and foremost, the HTC One X comes in two flavours depending on the area you are in. The first will be the North American version which has a couple key differences. The first is the lack of a quad-core processor with the 5th core for the camera. The second you will notice is the reduced storage capacity on this version. Check out below for the specifications sheet of the HTC One X on Rogers.
The next flavour of the One X is the European version which again will vary from its western cousin. The first difference is there is no LTE included in this version. The second is that the storage is not upgradable, but it does come with 32GB included in the device. We think this is more than enough to do whatever it is you may want to and if not, that is what we have the cloud for. Check out the technical specifications below to see the differences.
