Serial leakster @MS_nerd claims Microsoft is paying part of subsidies to release the HTC Windows Phone 8X on all three US carriers. Normally, it is down to carriers and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturer) to pay subsidies on devices so it is rather strange that Microsoft is getting involved.

The HTC Windows Phone 8X will be one of the first devices launched running the Windows Phone 8 operating system. Although a precise US release date is not yet known all the signs are promising that it's on schedule for November as it looks as though variants for AT&T and Verizon have passed through the FCC.
