Attention T-Mobile fans: If you’ve had your eye on the Windows Phone 8X by HTC or the Nokia Lumia 810 (a T-Mobile exclusive), head over to the carrier’s website or nearest store. Both Windows Phone 8 models went on sale this morning.
You can pick up the Windows Phone 8X in California Blue for $199.99 and the black Lumia 810 for $149.99—both on a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. T-Mobile’s website has all the details.
I picked up the HTC Windows Phone 8X and I love the phone, but I DEARLY wish we had Nokia Drive on this phone; lack of turn by turn directions is killer. I realize it's up to the OEMs to make this happen, but I would appreciate it if Microsoft would lean on their partners to speed up this process to make the Windows Phone 8 experience equal across all their phones.
I love my HTC windows 7 for what it is, a first step. I've been wating for the next gen. windows phone and when I saw the specs for the phones I was disappointed. One phone has expandable memory the other has better resolution for screen display. I guess I figured one of these phone makers would get it right. Don't get me wrong I love the way I can intergrade my work, gaming and social life and it's nothing but tiles for me. I do like the front
facing camera and it has 4G. Promoting a limited choice color option for a phone is not exciting. the functionable features Is why we choose windows over android and apple. For what these phones cost please just bring the tech.
Way to offer the 8X in exactly the one color I would not get. The purple/blue is no good. Give us more choices HTC/T-mobile!
Last night, I was comparing the 8X and the Lumia 810 and decided to walk out with the 810. I'm a big HTC fan, but I like how the 810 has a wider form than the 8X. Also, able to expand to 32GB sold me. The 810 is very light compared to the HD7 I've been using since 2010. Glad to say, I'm very happy with the Nokia phone.
That's amazing, and how soon can we expect full device backup on WP7.8 and 8? Because neither has it, and people can't upgrade til it does! windowsphone.uservoice.com/.../3306540-wp7-8-device-backup
I wish T-Mobile was selling the red 8X.
