T-Mobile announced today a lineup of new devices coming to and currently available on the carrier for the holiday season. The new lineup includes some of the latest devices running Google's Android operating system as well as Microsoft's just-launched Windows Phone 8 platform. The new handsets and tablets will be launching from the end of this month through the middle of November.
On the Windows Phone 8 end, T-Mobile will be carrying both Nokia's Lumia 810 and HTC's Windows Phone 8X. The Lumia 810 features Nokia's PureView digital image improvement technology, and it will be available on November 14. Customers will be able to choose from two payment options: a value plan will have the Lumia priced at $$100 after a $50 mail-in rebate card and 20 payments of $20 per month with a two-year service agreement, while a classic plan will see the handset priced at $150 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year service agreement.
The HTC 8X features Beats Audio technology as well as built-in amplifiers, allowing for a richer audio experience. It will be available for $150 after a $50 mail-in rebate and 20 payments of $20 per month and a two-year contract or for $200 after a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year service agreement. The 8X will also be available on November 14.
Google's just-announced Nexus 4 handset will go on sale at T-Mobile on November 14. The new Nexus phone will run the latest version of Google's Android operating system, and it will feature wireless charging like that seen with Nokia's Lumia line of handsets. The Nexus 4 will be available for $200 with a two-year service agreement. T-Mobile will also be offering the 3G Nexus 7 announced today beginning November 5.
The carrier also announced that it will be carrying the LG Optimus L9 beginning October 31 for $50 on a payment plan or for $80 with a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year agreement.
