Looks like T-Mobile is a new-device-announcement mood. Hours after taking the wraps off of the LG Optimus L9, T-Mobile has announced that it will carry the Nokia Lumia 810. Looking like a T-Mo-friendly version of the Lumia 820 that was introduced last month, the Lumia 810 includes a 4.3-inch WVGA OLED display, 8-megapixel rear and 1.2-megapixel front cameras as well as the Windows Phone 8 operating system. The Lumia 810 will also feature replaceable wireless charging shells in either black or cyan. T-Mobile says that the Lumia 810 will be available "in the coming weeks" for an undisclosed price.
T-Mobile launched the Windows Phone 7-powered Nokia Lumia 710 back in January, and it's good to see the carrier continuing to expand its Windows Phone lineup with another new Nokia handset. While T-Mobile isn't spilling many details on the Lumia 810's availability right now, it's worth mentioning that Microsoft is holding a big Windows Phone 8 shindig on October 29, so we may hear more details on or around that date. Are you Magenta Army members happy to see a new Nokia Lumia device headed your way?
