HTC’s (2498) upcoming Windows Pone 8 handsets will come integrated with Beats Audio, according to a report from The Verge. The first Windows 8 device to include the technology will be the HTC Accord, which will feature a Beats Audio branding similar to HTC’s Android-based One X and One S. The smartphone will also include a special Beats Audio application that will let users control the output on the handset. Earlier rumors have claimed that the Accord will be equipped with a 4.3-inch 1280 x 720 pixel resolution HD display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and an 8-megapixel rear camera. HTC is expected to announce its Windows Phone 8 devices at an event scheduled for the third week of September..
