So, I'm pretty upset that T-Mobile will not have any high end Windows Phone 8 devices. Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X will only be on AT&T. Most likely the Samsung ATIV S will be on AT&T. T-Mobile will have the Lumia 810 which has no PureView and a 800x600 screen. It's pretty much an HTC HD7 but just has Windows Phone 8 in it. What a job and I can understand why WP has not gotten much in the hands of people.
What I have done if I was Microsoft would have made all the Device makers made two(2) phones, One high end and one low end and all cellular company would have them. This way if people don't want to spend the extra $100 for the high end phone then they can get the low end and still have WP8. It's one of the reason why Samsung Galaxy S3 has done so well even though if you hold one it feels really cheap.
What are your thoughts on this?

Nokia was successful in the past because their phones, previously, were seldom, or not at all, carrier-exclusive.
Personally, I don't like this approach of Nokia'. They need to get as many people as they can, and this current approach ain't helping.
The phones need not be carrier-exclusive.

It's been known for a while that HTC 8X and 8S are coming to 3 of the four major carriers. So if you are on t-mo or verizon, your best Windows Phone option as of now is 8X.
Verizon??? I hate ATT and I will NEVER go with them..... I want a Verizon WP8 device for my next phone, as Verizon has best coverage in my area, as well as the areas I travel. ATT has the worst... even Sprint is better.
