T-Mobile starts taking orders for Windows Phone 8 devices

Verizon and AT&T have started selling their Windows Phone 8 smartphones. Now its finally T-Mobile's turn. The fourth largest US wireless carrier has started taking orders for its first two devices that run on Microsoft's newest mobile OS.

T-Mobile's website shows that the Nokia Lumia 810, which is an exclusive for T-Mobile in the US, is now available in black for $149.99. The 4.3 inch screen has a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm inside, along with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage.

T-Mobile is also now selling the 16 GB version of the HTC Windows Phone 8X, with the California Blue color, for $199.99. T. The prices for both devices are after signing a two year contract and after a $50 mail in rebate. T-Mobile previously had an exclusive on the Windows Phone 7.5-based Nokia Lumia 710, which the company still has on sale for free with a two year contract.

This means that Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile are all offering new Windows Phone 8 devices to people in the US. As we reportedly earlier this week, the nation's third biggest wireless carrier, Sprint, has now indicated it will join the party sometime in 2013.

I talk to the sales rep at T-Mobile and tells me that people gets T-Mobile for the monthly lower price then the phone itself. Also all T-Mobile phones are more expensive than At&t in general. For $40 I get 1000 minutes, unlimited text and 5GB 4G web. Its under family plan though nut still. Its about monthly fee then the phone.

The 810 on t-mobile is more expensive than the 920 on AT&T both on and off contract. I think it will be hard to convince anyone to buy it.

Thats my problem. I left Verizon two years ago to get the Dell Venue Pro. Now, that I've been with TMo im pretty satisfied with their service and very happy with my unlimited services. I was willing to stay with TMo and go with the HTC8x but after seeing how much it costs compared to the Lumia 920, plus the Lumia's wireless charing, better camera, larger screen, greater storage and the free wireless charging pad that ATT is throwing in. I just can't pass up this better deal.

They are joking or something. Nokia 810 is low model comparing to the Nokia 920, and they sell with higher price. Lolz ...

I can't find a 920 on sale here, and I can order one from the UK but they're going to make me jump through hoops to get it. I'll just get a 8x, it's also 100euros less.
