HTC 8X availability in the UK?

Hey guys As far as I am aware the Windows Phone 8X should be available in the UK by now... However my attempts to get one on orange during the last week have failed miserably. The staff in several EE stores have looked at me sideways whenever I mention it, and the guy on the phone "never heard of it... do you mean the 1X." I'm trying to get it on PAYG then stick a monthly sim in it, orange have the cheapest handset price (£350) and i've been with them for yours so really want to stay put. Does anybody know if this is just a problem in my area or is it really still not in stock?? Also, where the hell is the red model... any info would be greatly appreciated thank you kindly
