HTC 8X shows up on the Verge, looking pretty cool

The Verge Show had a brief hands-on with the HTC 8X, and ignoring the buffoonery of the hosts, the handsets in question look pretty good, very eye-catching and pretty thin.

Our polls so far shows the handset does not have much of a chance against the Nokia Lumia 920, but as a cheap, youth-orientated phone it may do pretty well indeed.
