Hot on the heels of yesterday's HTC One X+ announcement, British retailer Clove Technology brings the first news of pricing and availability in the UK. Clove says it expects to begin stocking the refreshed version of the One X from Oct. 22, and is currently taking pre-orders for £474 inc. VAT (that's £395, or $630, ext. VAT). That's a lot of money, to be sure, but at least prices aren't advancing north of £500, as has been the case for devices like the Galaxy S3 earlier in the year.
As ever, pre-order prices are subject to change, but with the One X+ UK launch just a couple of weeks away, we feel fairly confident these numbers will be accurate.
Tempted by a One X+ at this price, or are you holding you holding out for a cut-price original One X? Shout out in the comments.

As I've learned to manage the battery on my One X and have committed to cloud storage for music etc, thereby reducing the need for large on device storage, I'm more than happy to stick with what I've got. If the One X+ had 4G capability on the other hand the temptation factor would increase somewhat.
can't understand why people are so excited with One X+ as it got no improvements compared to One X other than a bumb in battery & internal storage. In fact I find it inferior to One X b'cause, as we all know Snapdragon S4 is much more power efficient & as much faster as Tegra 3 Quad-Core if not faster. HTC should have taken their time & released this One X+ with S4 quad-core so that it stay in competition with the upcoming Smartphones like LG Optimus G.
meh... with the note 2 that just came out (i got it!) and the new nexus coming, why would you get this? not exciting to me at all...
