Previewed at Mobile World Congress in Spain barely a month ago, HTC’s top-tier “One X” handset has found a provider in Australia, with Optus starting pre-orders now.

Seen as the flagship HTC phone for this year, HTC’s One X will feature a 4.7 inch HD screen with 1280×720 resolution, 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 32GB storage, and an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video capture, Beats Audio, and Google’s latest and greatest Android – 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

HTC is also packing in a whole bunch of wireless technologies here, including Bluetooth 4.0 with AptX, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, and Near-Field Communication (NFC).

Optus is the first provider to announce availability for the new handset, with $0 on a $59 cap for either consumers or businesses. Two year plans also nab at least two months free access, no doubt a way of attracting people to the new plans.

While pre-orders begin now, Optus tells us that it’s aiming to deliver the handsets on April 2 in metropolitan areas and April 4 in regional places, so at least you know that you won’t be waiting for too long.

The HTC One X will arrive in both black and white.
