T-Mobile drops HTC Windows Phone 8X and the Nokia Lumia 810 from its web site
T-Mobile has dropped a couple of Windows Phone 8 models from its website. First, with only 5% of the Windows Phone 8 market according to mobile ads network AdDuplex, it was time for the Nokia Lumia 810 to crossover. If you just have to have the phone, you can either buy one at the stores, or pick up a refurbished model online. To put that 5% marketshare in perspective, the Nokia Lumia 822 has a 21% share of the platform's market for Verizon. The refurb'ed Lumia 810 is $240, or you could decide to pay $0 down and make 24 monthly payments of $10.

Besides the Nokia Lumia 810, another Windows Phone 8 model has disappeared from T-Mobile's online store. The HTC Windows Phone 8X is apparently no longer available from the T-Mobile website although those who want the phone might be able to find it in a physical bricks and mortar T-Mobile store.

Some new Windows Phone 8 models are heading to the carrier such as the Nokia Lumia 521 expected to be offered on T-Mobile next month, and the Nokia Catwalk which appears headed for a May 15th launch. All we know about this model is that it should have a 4.5 inch OLED screen and to take great pictures in low-light, the device has both a Xenon flash and an LCD one. The aluminum casing measures 10.5mm thick. What might hurt this device is the launch date which comes after the release of both the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Well, in that regard no worries. T-Mo is replacing these with a mid-range Nokia and a premium Nokia. WP will still be a viable alternative.

From what I hear, T-Mo is just looking for a LTE option as far as the 810 goes. The 810 chipset did not allow LTE, and T-Mo wanted a future proof option

I am assuming you mean an LED one?

This is T-Mobile removing them from there website not Microsoft.
