T-Mobile, Verizon Kicking Off Windows Phone 8 Sales

As we’re moving further and further into November, Windows Phone 8 pre-orders are turning into shipped handsets, and phones are slowly but surely working their way onto retail shelves. The latest availability news comes from T-Mobile and Verizon, both of which are stepping-up their WP8 games this week.

We looked at the situation with Verizon last week, upon getting word of just when its WP8 pre-orders would ship. Those should have gone out as of yesterday, and now Verizon is talking about the start of full-blown sales. Beginning tomorrow, you’ll be able to purchase the Nokia Lumia 822 and HTC Windows Phone 8X both online and in Verizon retail stores. Special color options, like the red 8X, will be online exclusives.

T-Mobile is just slightly ahead of Verizon, kicking-off its own Windows Phone 8 sales this morning. Instead of the 822 it gets the Lumia 810, and it follows that up with an HTC 8X of its own. Unfortunately, while Verizon will let its 822 go for just about $100 on-contract, the 810 at T-Mobile is a hefty $150.
