Last week rumors appeared that Verizon might cancel or delay the release of its Windows Phone 8 (WP8) handsets because the OS has no provision for remote access. Apparently certain aspects of Verizon’s device management system necessitate remote access (anyone else find this kind of creepy?) in order to function properly.
Today however we have an image of the HTC 8X running on Big Red’s network with a rumored release date in early November.

Obviously the rumors were wrong or a solution has been found for the remote access problem.
The 8X features a dual-core Snapdragon S4, a 4.3″ 720p RGB Super LCD-2 screen, 1GB of RAM, a 1800 non-removable battery, a 2.1MP wide angle front camera and an 8MP rear camera with ImageSense. The rumored price is a mere $99.99 on contract.
Somewhere all five Verizon WP8 fans are smiling.
