Nokia Lumia 810 Tipped to Receive T-Mobile LTE-Enabling Update

T-Mobile is finally starting to get with the times and is readying itself to offer LTE service. We’ve recently learned about limited testing currently underway, and have heard about some of its handsets, like the Galaxy Note II, already packing LTE hardware for when the service is finally widely available. There’s one more ready to be added to that list, with news arriving that the Nokia Lumia 810 will get its own LTE-enabling update.

While that may not be so surprising, considering the healthy LTE support on the Lumia 820, it is noteworthy for the 810 being a T-Mobile exclusive model. According to Engadget, a T-Mobile rep was able to confirm that the 810 will receive an update to activate LTE service, though there’s no word on just when that might be ready to go. Considering the state of T-Mobile LTE is still in its infancy, there’s no real rush at the moment to hurry along its release.

Other LTE models coming to T-Mobile include the new BlackBerry Z10, and a hardware revision of the carrier’s Galaxy S III.
