Nokia Lumia 830 to be available at AT&T starting November 7?
While the Nokia Lumia 830 is expected be released in some markets starting this week, customers in the US may have to wait until November to get their hands on the new Windows Phone 8.1 device. According to WP Central and unnamed people familiar with the matter, AT&T intends to start selling the Lumia 830 on November 7. As we told you a few weeks back, AT&T already announced that it would offer the Lumia 830 to its customers, though it didn’t provide an official launch date for it.

The Nokia Lumia 830 is presented as Microsoft’s first “affordable flagship” smartphone. Its off-contract price isn’t higher than $400, so maybe AT&T will sell it for $50 (or even less?) on contract.

At 8.5mm, the 830 is the skinniest Lumia handset ever made, though it’s still not thinner than other smartphones (like, say, Apple’s iPhone 6, or Samsung’s Galaxy Alpha). One of the smartphone’s main features is its 10 MP PureView rear camera with Optical Image Stabilization. The Lumia 830 also offers a 5-inch IPS screen with 720 x 1280 pixels, NFC, LTE, a quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz, 1 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage space, microSD card support, and a 2200 mAh battery.

Verizon and T-Mobile may also launch the Nokia Lumia 830, but there are no official confirmations on this yet. Anyway, let us know if you're looking forward to buying this handset when it arrives in the States.

I hope it makes it to T-Mobile, I don't want to get the Nokia Lumia 635 cause it can't read Micro SD Cards and that a big defect to a "smartphone" with only 8gb of internal storage and I like having the choice between Android and WP8.1.

Agreed! I hope Microsoft doesn't lose the Nokia aesthetics - that is pretty much the only thing that has them going until they catch up with Android and iOS. I will however commend Microsoft for making leaps and bounds since the 928 I had on Verizon.
