Besides Google Nexus 4, T-Mobile launches HTC 8X, Nokia Lumia 810 and Samsung GALAXY Tab 2 10.1
It's a crazy, wild day at T-Mobile where a number of new devices are being launched. The Google Nexus 4, which sold out on the Google Play Store on Tuesday, is available at 'select' T-Mobile stores as we told you earlier. The 16GB model is available for the Classic plan for $199.99 with a signed two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate brings the price down even more. Unsubsidized, the phone is $499.99 or $150 more than the price on the Google Play Store. The device is powered by Android 4.2 and runs over the carrier's HSPA+42Mbps pipeline.

If Windows Phone 8 is more your thing, you can pick up the HTC 8X for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and 20 equal monthly payments of $20 and a two-year contract on the Value plan. With the Classic plan, the phone is $199.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate and a signed two-year contract. With a 4.3 inch Super LCD 2 display protected by Gorilla Glass 2 and sporting resolution of 720 x 1280, the 342ppi pixel density is tremendous. HSPA+42Mbps connectivity offers fast data speeds.

Another Windows Phone 8 model launching from T-Mobile on Wednesday is the Nokia Lumia 810, an exclusive to the carrier. On the Value plan, the phone is $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and 20 monthly payments of $20 with a signed two-year contract. Those on the Classic plan can pick up the device for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a signed two-year pact. The Nokia Lumia 810 is equipped with  4.3 inch OLED WVGA Clear Black display, an 8MP camera on back and a 1.2MP Skype HD certified front-facing camera. The unit offers HSPA+42Mbps connectivity.

If it's a tablet you need, T-Mobile has you covered there too, with the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1. The Android 4.0 powered tablet offers a 1280 x 800 resolution and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. However, for the same price, you can pick up the Google Nexus 10 off-contract at the Google Play Store with a mind-blowing 2560 x 1600 resolution and a 300ppi pixel density.

Whether it's the latest stock Android Nexus phone, Windows Phone 8 models, or an Android tablet, T-Mobile has you covered today. Just expect some decent sized crowds at the stores.

I would not call it a crazy wild day at T-Mobile. I picked up my HTC 8x from my local T-Mobile corporate store. There were no lines and no one looking at the HTC 8x and the Nokia Lumia 810. Both phones are well made, has a excellent display, and the UI is very snappy. I can say now it's time to retire my HTC Radar, she served me well......

MS and T-Mobile really needs to step up to the plate and push both the HTC 8x and Nokia Lumia 810, in general WP line. It was disheartening to hear the sales rep tell me that not many people like Windows Phone OS as I was paying for her. I can understand windows mobile 6.x and it's other iterations, however with WP 7 and now 8. It's a totally different ballgame, a very good one at that.
