T-Mobile gets Nokia Lumia 810 exclusively

T-Mobile just announced that it’s getting an exclusive new Nokia phone, the Lumia 810 with Windows Phone 8.

This comes a week after AT&T announced that it’s going to be the exclusive launch carrier with the bigger Lumia, the 920.

The 810 has a 4.3-inch OLED display, an 8 megapixel camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera for HD video calls.

With Apple’s iPhone 5 stumbling with its maps, Nokia and T-Mobile are highlighting that the Lumia 810 has avanced navigation features and a “comprehensive, integrated mapping experience.”

The Nokia 810 also comes with Nokia’s free, ad-free streaming music service.

T-Mobile also received the smaller version of the first Lumias, the 710, which is now available from the carrier at no fee with a two-year contract. It has a 3.7-inch screen and 5 megapixel camera.

Pricing and a specific launch day for the 810 weren’t provided, but it’s likely to go on sale right after the Windows Phone 8 launch on Oct. 29, probably for less than $200.

T-Mobile’s announcement said that it’s a “superior value,” so perhaps the price will be closer to $100.
