First Look: Nokia Lumia 810, T-Mobile's first Windows 8 phone

1:49 /

T-Mobile's first Windows 8 phone riffs off the Nokia Lumia 820.

-Hey everyone, I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET here at MobileCon 2012 in San Diego. This is your very first look-- everybody's very first look at the Nokia Lumia 810 exclusive to T-Mobile. Now, this is a variant of the Nokia Lumia 820 that was announced earlier. It's a Windows phone. In fact, it's T-Mobile's first Windows phone 8 device. You can't see it right now because it's on lock-down because Microsoft is about to have its official unveiling. So, you can't actually see the screen quality or anything like that, but it is a 4.3-inch WVGA screen resolution and you have the three capacitive buttons down here. For Windows Phone 8, the style of the button changed a little bit. So, now, it's slanted. It's rather blacky. It comes in black, but you can swap out to a cyan cover. There is wireless charging capability as well. There's an 8-megapixel camera on the back with Carl Zeiss optics in it. There's a flash. On the front, there's a 1.3-megapixel camera that a certified Skype HD, so you will be able to make high definition video calls. As with all Windows phones, there's also a dedicated hardware camera button. These buttons definitely stand out on the side. They're glossy and plastic. I always like this because it makes it easy to take pictures and even wake up the phone when it's in sleeping and lock mode. There's no pricing or availability quite yet, but we do know that it's gonna come in a few weeks' time, so we'll definitely be around for the holiday rush. I'm Jessica Dolcourt for CNET. This has been your first look at the Nokia Lumia 810 for T-Mobile.
