The Nokia Lumia 820 has many variants unlike its more powerful sibling, the Nokia Lumia 920. One of them is called the Lumia 810 and is available via T-Mobile, while the second one is the Lumia 822 and is sold at Verizon. (The original Lumia 820 is exclusively launched in the US via AT&T.) Though both carriers offer the handsets at affordable prices, you can get them at better price tags; just visit Wirefly.

Though the Magenta carrier has slashed the price for the Lumia 820 by $50 selling it for only $99.99 on contract, Wirefly will give this phone to you for only $79.99, and T-Mobile will ship it for free. It’s a perfect deal taking into account this mid-range device is packed with a 4.3-inch WVGA touchscreen with ClearBlack Display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor paired with 1GB of RAM, an 8MP camera on the back with dual-LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics and no PureView support, a VGA camera on the front, a 1650mAh battery, 8GB built-in memory, microSD card slot, 7GB of free SkyDrive storage, LTE, HSPA+, NFC and Windows Phone 8.

As for the Nokia Lumia 822, the phone is sold by Big Red for $99.99. It’s an affordable price for a phone that comes with a slightly changed design and wireless charging support, but why pay more, when there is another option coming from Wirefly. According to this online agent, the Lumia 822 can be yours for only $0.99.

The Nokia Lumia 820 will be launched in three versions. Besides the original one that will be available via AT&T sometime in November, Verizon will offer the Lumia 822, and T-Mobile will sell the Lumia 810. Now we know when the alerted variant of the Lumia 820 will be launched via the Magenta carrier, which came up with a corresponding statement after Windows Phone 8 announcement.

T-Mobile will release the Nokia Lumia 810 and HTC Windows Phone 8X on November 14. The Lumia 810 will cost $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, but the carrier has another offer that significantly raises the total cost of the device but lowers the up-front costs. So the Nokia Lumia 810 can be ordered for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and an additional payment of $20 per month for 20 months.

The next Windows Phone 8 device called the HTC 8X will be sold alongside with the Nokia Lumia, and it will cost $149.99 after a $50 mail in rebate and a contract to pay an additional $20 per month for 20 months.

The Nokia Lumia 920 was recently announced to be launched in the US exclusively via AT&T. Now we have other awesome news concerning a new Lumia range device — T-Mobile has reportedly announced the Nokia Lumia 810, which will be available in the US only in Magenta Carrier’s stores.

The Nokia Lumia 810 is the alerted variant of the Nokia Lumia 820. It is packed with a 4.3-inch Clear Black AMOLED touchscreen at QVGA resolution and 217ppi pixel density, a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage, an 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics and video recording ability in 1080p at 30fps and a 1.2MP Skype HD certified front-facing camera perfect for video chat. The Nokia Lumia 810 also sports a 1650mAh battery, which can provide up to 14 hours of talk-time (it’s longer than what the 820 provides).

Details regarding the phone’s availability and price are yet unknown. Below is the official statement:

“We’re providing our customers with a unique Windows Phone 8 experience by offering an exclusive device paired with our Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data plan and a comprehensive set of enhanced features. The Nokia Lumia 810 gives customers speedy, 4G access to T-Mobile’s nationwide network and the content and features they want, whenever they need it. From navigation tools to an enhanced camera, the Lumia 810 provides a great value and a high-quality experience.”-Andrew Morrison, vice president of product management, T-Mobile USA.

The Nokia Phi flagship handset coming via AT&T will most likely be unveiled on September 5 at a joint event organized by Nokia and Microsoft. It’s not the company’s only Windows Phone 8 smartphone as it has promised to make WP8 handsets for each major carrier in the US. Seems Nokia keeps its promise because yesterday we introduced two other devices, the Nokia Arrow for T-Mobile and the Nokia Atlas for Verizon. But they have not been spotted in any photo, while the Nokia Phi has been. The photos were very blurry, and the only things we got were the larger screen and the Lumia 800/900 like design. Take a look at the Nokia design patent photo, where the Nokia Phi is drawn from all sides.

The front of the phone has a 4.7-inch display at an unknown resolution but it’s not curved as we thought earlier. Contrary to this, the back of the Phi is a bit curved and bulky, which is probably made to fit the battery with bigger capacity. On the bottom we can see dual-speakers that are provided for a great sound system.

The right hand side is identical with the Lumia 900, though there is a huge “gap” between the power and volume controls. As a result the camera button is pushed further down. The top side includes a microUSB slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

If you were attentive, the Nokia Lumia Phi emulates the N9/Lumia 800/900 design, but it is way larger and that’s what we need now.


The Nokia Lumia 900 was launched in the US exclusively via AT&T, but that exclusivity will disappear after 45 days, which is good news for all those carriers, which also want to release this phone. Many people will doubt if there are other “crazy ones” wishing to try their luck, but it seems only Android and iPhone lovers think so as if we trust an employee inside T-Mobile, the Lumia 900 will be launched in the States via Magenta carrier in summer.

This news is not that surprising as AT&T’s units of the phone are already sold out, thus, we are dealing with a quite welcomed handset, in spite of many analysts who don’t hide their addiction to Android platform.

Anyway, if it does happen, we may see another Lumia 900, the camera of which can offer 12MP lens unlike the original one, which sports an 8MP camera. Plus, it might run the updated version of Windows Phone, therefore it will lack all those bugs discovered on the original phone.

Well, the summer is around the corner, and if this tipster is right, most likely the T-Mobile Nokia Lumia 900 will be released at a cheaper price tag to make a competition.


T-Mobile was the only carrier, which decided to launch Nokia’s new smartphone dubbed the Lumia 710. Others doubted Nokia’s success and lost, because this phone has become one of the most popular devices among T-Mobile subscribers due to its free availability and affordable data plans.

Handsets like the Nokia Lumia 710 are something for experiments. The phone is a guinea pig, which helps the company understand what consumers want and discover their preferences. When the device was launched in the US via T-Mobile, many geeks criticized Nokia for not having released a high-end smartphone. But I deeply believed in Nokia and was sure the company was on the right track. After all, if the US doesn’t accept Nokia’s philosophy and refuses its products, why launch high-end handsets there and fail? Anyway, seems the Nokia Lumia 710 is completing its mission, because the latest reports say the phone is the third best-selling smartphone at T-Mobile (it comes after the HTC Amaze and the Samsung Galaxy S II).

The Nokia Lumia 710 is expected to keep its popularity even after the launch of the Lumia 900, because the latter will cost far more, so not every person will afford buying it, while our hero will be an alternative for those who want to own a Windows Phone-flavored smartphone.
