Nokia Lumia 810 headed to T-Mobile, Windows Phone 8 pre-orders to start on October 21

Nokia Lumia 810 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag hereAs is becoming tradition, T-Mobile plans to carry the lesser of Nokia’s two Windows Phone handsets this fall, the Lumia 810. A variant of the Lumia 820, the Lumia 810 boasts a 1.2MP wide-angle front-facing camera (rather than VGA) carrying Microsoft’s Skype HD certification, as well as an 1800mAh battery (up from 1,650mAh). Of course, as you’d expect, it’s also been designed for the best performance on T-Mobile’s 4G network. The rest of the specs, however, are identical, including the black chassis with swappable colored cases – one of which adds wireless charging.

We don’t know how much the device will cost or when it will be available, but the next slate of Windows Phone 8 handsets are rumored to go up for pre-order on October 21. While it might seem odd to announce pricing and availability one week before the Windows Phone 8 launch event, Microsoft leaves details like these up to the carriers. The launch event itself will be reserved for OS features. Stay tuned to Pocketables for live coverage of the event in three weeks.
