I could not really understand why there are some phone numbers for the 'en'-locale that contain an 'x'.

Examples:

1-846-855-5409 x2322
(624)552-0330 x2892

I researched on Wikipedia, but couldn't really find out what the deal is with those numbers. Can anyone shed some light?

The x is for an internal extension. For example, 1-846-855-5409 x2322 - you would dial the company's PABX on 1-846-855-5409, and get an IVR prompting you for an extension to call, and you would then dial 2322.

Cheers,

The x stands for extension.  The phone number gets you to the main company number, and then each employee has their own extension number.
