• T-Mobile announces new Windows Phone: the Nokia 810


    T-Mobile just announced the Windows Phone 8 powered Nokia Lumia 810. I'm not sure how the 810 is different from the 820. Looking at the picture the design appears to be slightly different. Compared to the pictures of the 820 I took at the Nokia launch the 810 looks like it has harder edges whereas the 820's are more rounded.

    Like 820 the 810 has a 4.3" WVGA (800x480) OLED display. Details on the processor, storage, RAM weren't mentioned.

    The banding on the 810 will probably be different too. I'm guessing it will supports AWS DC-HSPA+

    Like the 820 the 810 supports wireless charging if you buy a different cover. It will also come with Nokia Music.

    Pricing and launch date weren't announced.

      Will this have Sd Card expansion like the 820? That would make it more palatable for me

      Very little of the specs were announced, unfortunately. The 810 is taller and thicker (same width) as the 820, so it is very likely that like the 820 it will have removable storage. But it would be nice of T-Mobile or Nokia to release all the specs.

      There's no SD slot. What a giant fail from Nokia, otherwise this probably would of been their best phone offering IMHO.

      T-Mobile really needs the Lumia 920 or 910 or whatever they want to call it on their network. They have the SG3 for android and they don't carry the iPhone... They need higher end phones and a Lumia 920 variant would be perfect.

      I agree I would prefer the 920, but ATT paid for exclusivity. In any case let's assume the exclusivity only lasts a few months, TM could then bring it onboard at exactly the time the first LTE locations go live and it would be a good phone to tie in with that....
