Nokia Lumia 810 breaks cover, headed to T-Mobile

Nokia and T-Mobile have announced the Lumia 810 which will be an exclusive device to the carrier. The phone will sport a 4.3in OLED display, exchangeable shells in cyan and black, 8 MP camera, 1.2-megapixel Skype HD certified front-facing camera and all of your other standard Nokia software options. 

The phone will be exclusive to T-Mobile in the US and will be the follow-up device to the Lumia 710 that T-Mobile had previously been selling. For Nokia, they want to win at the entry level as well as the high end market to claw back the market-share that they have been bleeding for the past few years. 

Like all of the other devices that have been announced, we do not know a pricing or launch date at this time.

Looks good, but why couldn't they just do the 820 for Tmobile as well instead of coming up with a whole new one just for them. Fragmenting the phones across carriers to me isn't the best idea

Nice phone the back side look much better than 820
there is one question remain in my mind are they going to make it global product or it will remain exclusive in us

As usual, T-Mobile announcing some device that's already outdated and irrelevant before release... And it does look like an iPhone too... I guess that's as close as they can get

I like the look of it. Yes it looks like the iPhone but a rectangle with curved edges is pretty generic in my eyes. I know its a carrier exclusive but give it time and it will be available online to buy outright. I just wish it was a 4" screen. 4.3" is too big to hold in one hand for me.

Nope, it will be the same thing like last year. They said Nokia 900/800 would come to T-Mobile, but at the end we only get ****ty Nokia 710. This will be the same thing. If you want Nokia 920/820, you have to go somewhere else. Or you can get HTC 8 series phones.

820 is AT&T and 810 is T-Mobile? We gonna see a 910 for T-Mobile?

probably because of lower then expected sales of the 900.. I think the 910 may come eventually to tmobile

Wow really T-Mobile? You only get ****ty Nokia phones? Time for me to move to AT&T.
Also this will be the loss for Nokia, since most people on T-Mobile may go for HTC 8 series phones.

See, this is TMO's issue. They, in cooperation with MS/Nokia, get the Jan Brady Lumia 810 to AT&T's Marsha Brady Lumia 920. Why why WHY can't the 920/820 be available to the three carriers that will sell the new Lumias? The perception AGAIN is TMO gets a shittier version and for what reason? Not even the 820? They get a newly announced *810*? Despite not having 4G LTE, what makes TMO less "worthy" of just getting HSPA+ versions of the 920/820?

If the Samsung GS3 can be on TMO , why can't the 920/820? Someone please help me out here.

It's more the crazy carrier controlled system you have in the US. Nokia can't afford to not be on AT&T and they demand the top line exclusively at least for a set period. There is nothing Nokia can do. Most everywhere else in the world you buy the phone of your choice for full price and then get a SIM only contract for $15-$60 per month on 12 month contract depending on your needs. Or you get a 24mo contract for $25/mo more and get a phone for 'free'. SO you pick and choose. Not so in the US.

So don't be too quick to blame anyone but your own system.

I thought the 920 was the only AT&T exclusive? What an asinine business decision.

800x600 screen what a joke! I'm on tmobile and I don't see myself getting this phone if I can't get a better higher resolution screen. Just hope the HTC will be on Tmobile because I will get that instead. Nokia making a bad move on their part!

If you want a better screen then you buy the 920... Its not Nokia's fault, T-Mobile arent selling it!

I really don't understand how doing carrier specific devices is going to help Nokia... surely they should just be doing a couple of models to address specific price points, in a few different colours and get them out there!

Seems you are form the UK.. The US does not have SIM only contracts like we know them. You pay the same with or without a phone and most Americans can't or won't pay full prize for a phone. The whole economy there is based on being in debt and paying over time or leasing.

If I tell my friends in the US I do unlimited internet and text for $15/mo they do not know what they are hearing..

You pay the same amount for the plan whether or not you get the phone subsidized. It's either you buy the phone outright (more money) with the freedom to switch carriers or just tough it with the carrier for two years and pocket the extra couple hundred dollars. Cheaper contracts like you have across the pond just don't exist over here. We do not have the option to pay less.

The majority of people here do contracts and get a new handset at the time they start the contract. But I think more people are coming round to the idea of just doing a SIM only deal and then buying the handset unlocked / not on contract.

I managed to get a SIM only deal recently which blew away any other contract I could find which has left me free to pick the handset I want and, subsequently, be free to sell it on if I don't like it or want something else!

Looks like an iPhone. Without the raised glass and the different shape, very close.

And the maps app will get you to the right places.

Well, I thought about this too, but I guess they may seem far off cousins and I guess that should not be too bad....

Then you ask why the "rounded corner patent" joke is everywhere nowadays.

Holy crap... I had to read the title and look at the brand on the phone just to make sure I wasn't confusing something.

It looks almost exactly like an iPhone... WOW.

The only similarity I see is at the bottom, other than that I don't see it.

Yeah this one really does. I wonder if T-Mobile requested that they look like that. This doesn't look anything like a Lumia.
