The Lumia 920 and the Windows Phone 8X aren't the only Microsoft-tastic devices to get excited about this November -- particularly if you're on a bit of a budget, and especially if you're a T-Mobile USA customer. The Nokia Lumia 810 is a variation on Nokia's newest midrange Windows Phone 8 offering, custom-tailored for America's most magenta carrier. It features a 4.3-inch OLED display with WVGA resolution and Nokia's "Clear Black" technology, and it's powered by a dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus running at 1.5GHz, backed up by a gig of RAM. The camera is 8MP with Carl Zeiss optics ...

This morning in San Francisco, Microsoft took the wraps off Windows Phone 8, the latest iteration of its smartphone operating system and the mobile companion to its new desktop OS. While it's undergone a radical change to its underpinnings, swapping out its old foundation for the same kernel and core used by its full-sized Windows 8 counterpart, the massive overhaul isn't apparent from a visual perspective. The new OS features the same minimalistic tile-based user interface we've come to know and love from Windows Phone 7, with some tweaks to tile sizes, layout, and animations. Especially ...

All the different model numbers Nokia is using to launch its first Windows Phone 8 handsets are chock full of opportunities to confuse. After all, we've got the Lumia 920 on AT&T, a rumored 922 for Verizon, the Lumia 820 again on AT&T, and then an 810 variant for T-Mobile and an 822 for Verizon. With the launch nearly upon us, all those carriers are preparing for the arrival of these new Lumias, and today we get at how T-Mobile's been getting ready for its Lumia 810 to drop. It's hard to make out much of the marketing copy in this brochure, but we can see T-Mobile and Nokia hitting ...

Nokia's quarterly numbers indicate that the Finnish phone-maker sold less Windows Phone-based Lumia devices than in the previous quarter. We tried to defend and explain that the 27.5% decrease is mainly due to the end of a product cycle to which we should also add the fact that users are refraining from purchasing old-gen Lumia devices because of no Windows Phone 8 update in sight. Stephen Elop, the CEO of Nokia, remains optimistic as always. He strongly believes that Windows Phone 8 will take off as soon as carriers realize the need for a strong third ecosystem to challenge the strong ...

Even more so than launch dates, pricing info always seems to be the last detail to arrive before a smartphone finally becomes available. We've seen some recent leaks of T-Mobile's roadmap for the next couple months, chock full of dates, but lacking that all-important pricing info. This evening we may get a sense for how some of those phones will be priced, thanks to a leak out of Walmart. Obviously, carrier prices could vary from what a retailer like Walmart charges, but especially for launch hardware, it's likely to be pretty close. We recently learned that Sprint will sell its Galaxy ...

We just got a press release from T-Mobile announcing their exclusive new Nokia Lumia 810 to be available in a few weeks. It seems to be quite similar to the Nokia Lumia 820 that we saw announced back in September, however the shell looks to be flatter on the edges rather than rounded. It will include support for T-Mobile's unlimited 4G data plans of course, plus there's the 4.3-inch OLED WVGA Clear Black display, 8-megapixel camera engineered with Carl Zeiss optics, and 1.2-megapixel Skype HD certified front-facing camera. Cinemagraph, a lens that creates animated GIFs, as well as panorama ...
