T-Mobile which was supposed to host a launch event today, but had to cancel due to Hurricane Sandy, also announced a flurry of devices without an event detailing release dates and pricing for a trio of smartphones including the new LG Nexus 4 with Android 4.2, the HTC Windows Phone 8X and the Lumia 810, all three of which will be arriving in November.
Today, both Google and T-Mobile cancelled their respective launch events in New York City but decided to announce the products anyway with Google revealing the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 tablet and new Nexus 7s along with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. T-Mobile, will be the U.S. carrier that will be taking on the new Nexus 4, at least for now and the carrier revealed the launch info in a detailed press release today.
The carrier also unveiled information regarding the release dates and pricing concerning two upcoming Windows Phone 8 devices including the Nokia Lumia 810 and the HTC Windows Phone 8X.
The LG Nexus 4, which was unveiled today, will be heading to T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network and it will be launching on November 14th and will be available online and through select retail locations.
T-Mobile’s Nexus 4 is going to feature a 4.7-inch HD display, a quad-core processor, two cameras, a design that is reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean operating system.
It will retail for $199.99 for the 16GB version of the phone. It doesn’t appear as though T-Mobile will be offering the 8GB variant of the Nexus 4.
As for the two Windows Phone 8 smartphones, they too are expected to touch down on November 14th. The HTC Windows Phone 8X will arrive for $149.99 on a Value Plan and $199.99 on a Classic Plan while the Lumia 810 will be much cheaper and check in with price tags of $99.99 on a Value Plan and $149.99 on a Classic Plan.
