In a later tweet, Football also revealed the cover page of the phone's quick guide user manual, which states the name as 8X, where the "8" is obviously for the WP8 platform, and the "X" indicates a flagship status, like the HTC One X for Android phones. Therefore, it looks like "Accord" was a "working title" or code name, whereas "8X" will the final retail label of the Taiwanese manufacturer's first foray into the WP8 space. It is expected that HTC will officially make an announcement of these three devices by the end of this month.
