    Nothing yet, based on what their showing on the website I would guess black and California Blue though.

    Based on verizon getting black and red exclusively, sounds like TMO will just get the blue...was hoping for black as well.

    I have a feeling it may only be available in California Blue. I checked T-Mo's website earlier and the 8X is finally showing up under "Phones," but the only option that shows is the blue.

    My fear as well. I don't mind the blue but I really wanted the black model.

    Red and black are confirmed exclusive to Verizon in the U.S. so it's probably just the blue.

    To me it doesn't sound like they're saying the colours are exclusive to them, but rather those are the colours available. Either way, as long as California Blue makes it to T-Mobile then I'll be happy.

    They changed their wording. It used to specifically say that Black and Red were exclusive to Verizon. Oh well, maybe that's good news for T-Mobile customers.

    Edit: Nevermind, it's in the Windows Phone 8 article that they state it. Look at the bottom where it talks about the 8X.

    honestly, if black becomes an exclusive color to verizon, i'm just going to skip this generation of wp8 devices and hold out with my dell venue pro until the stupidity subsides.

    It'd be stupid fo a black phone to be exclusive to 1 carrier.

    It sounds like I can't even get the color that I want on my carrier... First the phone, then the color. If TMo only carries one color ill be really irritated.


    P.S. - am I the only one that wants yellow?

    Exclusive colors are not a WP8, HTC, or Nokia specific thing. Check out this article from Android Central.

    Samsung stresses, however, that the availability of colors will depend on your country, retailer and carrier.

    I really like the look of the yellow and it looks like that is the one color that won't come to Verizon.

    Black is a color that should be default on all carriers. I really want to grab a High End windows phone, but choices like this might just make go with the Nexus 4 instead.

    As stated in the launch on Monday, Microsoft stores will carry all wp8 devices in every color (including the online Microsoft store as well). No need to worry.

    That statement confuses me because they say that color depends on carrier, but that the online store will carry all colors... unlocked?

    If so, why can't I get the color I want on the carrier I want without having to pay more?!

    Well, the Windows Phone site shows a green/yellow one for their picture of the 8X on AT&T, so they will probably have that one as an exclusive, with T-Mobile only getting the Blue. It's certainly possible they will both get it though, Verizon might be the only one that isn't, due to it's exclusive of black and red.

    Phones | Windows Phone (United States)

    Actually it shows a black one for T-Mobile, so it's obviously not really telling us anything, they just stuck three different colors there so it would look better.

    His HTC Rep may have shown him a black one however it's Verizon exclusive sadly. T-Mobile is only getting California Blue.
