Nokia Lumia 830 and HTC One (M8) for Windows arrive at AT&T on November 7

Nokia Lumia 830 and HTC One (M8) for Windows arrive at AT&T on November 7
AT&T today confirmed that it would launch two new Windows Phone 8.1 handsets later this week, on November 7: the Nokia Lumia 830 and the HTC One (M8) for Windows.

Already available to buy unlocked in the US, the Lumia 830 will be offered by AT&T for $99.99 on contract, $449.99 off-contract, or for free on an AT&T Next plan (in this case, you’ll have to pay $18.75 a month with Next 18, or $22.50 a month with Next 12).

The 830 is the thinnest Lumia smartphone ever, and it’s among the last Windows Phone handsets to bear the Nokia brand. Its features include a 5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, a 10 MP PureView rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory. For a limited time, AT&T will offer a free Fitbit Flex fitness tracking wristband to customers who are buying the Lumia 830.

The HTC One (M8) for Windows will be more expensive than the Lumia smartphone: AT&T will sell it for $199.99 on contract, or $669.99 off-contract. To get it for $0 down, you’ll have to pay $27.92 a month with AT&T Next 18, or $33.60 a month with AT&T Next 12. Verizon is already selling the One (M8) for Windows - which, except for the fact that it runs Windows Phone 8.1, is similar to the HTC One (M8) that runs Android.

Another new smartphone that will be available at AT&T starting November 7 is the Android-based HTC Desire EYE - this features a 13 MP front-facing camera and a 13 MP rear camera, and will cost $149.99 on contract.

I like the 830 design but not interested in the midranger. Also why buy it when you can get a g3 as cheap? Also why is the one so high? AT&T must be crazy

Again , some people would like to have Windows phone over G3.

A good deal is a Moto G. The 830 and Moto G LTE have the same resolution display, same 1gb of ram, same Snapdragon 400 CPU. The only real difference is the camera, and OS. The Moto G however is $200 less then the 830.

The best deal in all of smartphones in recent memory is the Lumia 520, I've seen deals as low as $35. Best bang for buck period.

I will tell u why. The reason is a midranger like the lumia 720 or even a low end phone like the 520 are getting faster and more updates than a G2, even though they were released before it and were and still much cheaper than the G2. The G2 hasn't got the 4.4.4 ( it will be a very long wait till it gets 5.0) yet while all unlocked lumia r rocking the latest WP8.1 lumia cyan and will get lumia denim WP8.1.1 very soon. Well, u could WP8.1.1 now using Developer preview program. I will bet the situation will be the same with the L830 and the G3.

Get updates on time, arguably better imaging (rich capture, dynamic flash, RAW capture), someone may prefer the OS and the features that come with WP and MS phones

I completely get that too.. I like wp but even in its ecosystem there are better phones like the icon/930 and the l1520

HTC Desire Eye will be available on the same day... I think Desire Eye is a better choice.

Not a huge HTC fan, but that One (M8) for Windows just looks like it was made for WP. It may be the best looking Windows Phone I have ever seen. I am not a big camera guy, I only care about shutter speed. I am willing to give this a fair shake.
