As well as launching a new pure Android version of its flagship One smartphone today, HTC has also unveiled the 8XT, a new Windows model for Sprint in the United States.

The new HTC is one of the first Windows Phone 8 mobiles to be carried by the wireless company (along with the Samsung ATIV S Neo), and will also be one of the first to benefit from Sprint's unlimited 4G LTE plans.

The 8XT offers a 4.3-inch 800 x 480 display, a dual-core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal memory, a microSD slot (up to 64 GB cards), an 8 MP back-facing camera with LED flash that allows for simultaneous video capture and still shots, and a front-facing 1.6 MP camera.

Other features include wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 1800mAh battery, as well as the Taiwanese company's popular BoomSound and dual front-facing speakers.

The HTC 8XT is expected to be available this summer starting at US$99 with a two year contract (including a mail in rebate), while monthly fees for the unlimited data plans will start at US$79.99 a month.

Sprint is also emphasizing the productivity benefits of Windows phones and is offering discounts on Office 365 subscriptions to its customers.
