Excerpt: Nokia is making a big gamble by choosing Microsoft Windows 8 Mobile as the OS for their line of smart phones. The fate of this once dominant player in the mobile space is tied closely to the success or failure of the Windows OS.
Excerpt: The Nokia Lumia 810 on T-Mobile may be less flashy and good looking than the HTC 8X , but it carries some serious appeal beyond its lower price tag. The Windows Phone 8 smartphone launched at $150 with contract, but is already down to $99 on the T-Mobile US website.
Pros: Fast, affordable, great camera, has microSD card slot.
Cons: Bland design, relatively low resolution display- though it's a nice looking screen.
Summary: While it costs more, we prefer the $199 HTC Windows Phone 8X for T-Mobile. Although it lacks free turn-by-turn navigation and other Nokia niceties, you get a much sleeker design and sharper camera. The 8X is the Windows Phone we'd rather carry on this carrier.
