So I wanted to buy a new phone online, the HTC 8X, I was wondering if I could activate a plan on Koodo using a SIM Card, however the phone is only compatible with GSM providers or another version of the same phone is available with HSPA providers, I was wondering which phone model would be compatible with Koodo.

Koodo does not have a GSM network, only HSPA.

What MatB posted are the specs from gsmarena.com.

These specs sugget that there are two variants of this phone, and if these specs are correct, both variants are compatible with Koodo's UMTS (HSPA) and LTE networks.

And unless you've already made the purchase, I'd advise you to look for Windows Phone 8 devices made by Nokia instead, as they have some great exclusive apps, such as Nokia Music (ad-free music streaming service you can cache for free offline listening). The Lumia 920 is similarly priced to the 8X.

Nope.
2G GSM does not work for Koodo. Only for Rogers/Fido
