Plenty of hardware that carries Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 operating system has been released in the US during the past few days and if you are or you’re planning to become an AT&T customer and you want to buy a WP 8-powered smartphone, your choices are the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC Windows Phone 8X.
If HTC’s WP 8 flagship phone is what you’re after then you should be happy to find out that, recently, Verizon and T-Mobile have also launched it on their networks.
Nonetheless, if none of the above applies to you then you could be interested in T-Mobile’s Nokia Lumia 810, and if that’s the case, you’re in for a treat.
Nokia Lumia 810 at T-Mobile
The Nokia Lumia 810 has been fully unveiled by T-Mobile about a month ago, but at that time, its release date and price tag were still unknown.
But here we are, past mid-November and Magenta has recently started offering the Nokia Lumia 810 at the price of $149.99 alongside a 2-year contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. That’s a bit more expensive than what the previous rumors have suggested, but there you have it.
As for what you’ll get for your money, the Lumia 810 is basically a spin-off on the 820 and packs a 4.3 inch OLED WVGA screen, a Qualcomm MSM8960 Snapdragon dual-core SoC running at 1.5 GHz, an Adreno 225 graphics chip, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage expandable via microSD, a 8 MP camera on the back coupled with a 1.2 front-facing sensor and a 1,800 mAh battery.
There are other interesting features offered by this particular handset, besides its more than decent hardware specs, such as wireless charging capabilities, exchangeable shells and more. You’ll find all those extra details in our Nokia Lumia 810 Overview, and in case you’re planning on buying one then head down to T-Mobile and see what’s what.
