While Rihanna is busy giving them away, Telus customers are waiting to see when the HTC One X+ will be available and how much it will cost. Luckily, one of those two details is now known.
The HTC One X+, which has been listed on the Telus website as “coming soon” since last month, made an appearance in a print ad yesterday that showed the price at $129. The catch? If you want the One X+ at that price, you’re going to have to sign up for a 3-year contact.
We’ve covered the specs before, but for a quick refresher, the HTC One X+ features a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280, 1.7 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 1 GB of RAM and a 2,100 mAh battery. Toss in an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 1.6-megapixel front facing camera, and you’ve got quite a powerful device for $129.
There is no word yet on what Telus will charge for the phone without a contract. The AT&T version of the HTC One X+, which launched just a few days ago, goes for $549 without a contract, so we expect that the cost will be similar for Telus customers. There is also no word yet on when the phone will be available, but the recent AT&T launch of the device may be a clue indicating a release soon.
Are you a Telus customer? Do you think the idea of locking yourself into a 3-year contract is worth it to pick up a HTC One X+ for $129?

Can’t speak for other countries, but here in Brazil the maximum contract time is one year. Can’t imagine what it’s like being stuck with a contract for 3 years…

Im going to lock in for another 3 yrs…happy with Telus, and my contact at Telus told me
release date will be Nov 23
Makes sense, as Best Buy’s flyer is likely going to be delivered on Friday as well, can’t wait!
