T-Mobile’s new Windows Phone 8 devices, the Nokia Lumia 810 and the HTC 8X have gone on sale at the magenta carrier yesterday. And they’re a bit more expensive than the WP8 devices sold by other carriers. Thankfully, though, a third-party is here to mitigate that.
As is usually the case in the US, shortly after new smartphones officially go on sale, they’re offered by third-party retailers cheaper than the carrier they’re tied to. And that’s the case today too.
You can pick up both the HTC 8X and the Nokia Lumia 810 from Wirefly cheaper than from T-Mobile. The HTC 8X can be yours for $129.99 with a new two-year contract. That’s $70 less than what the magenta carrier wants you to pay. Furthermore, the price is valid for both new customers and upgraders.
The Nokia Lumia 810 can be purchased for just $79.99 from Wirefly, bringing you $70 savings as well. Again this is both for new contracts as well as contract extensions. And once more, you’ll need to commit to a two-year service agreement (or extension) with T-Mobile.
The only caveat is that neither of these handsets seems to be in stock at Wirefly at the moment. They both have “ships when available” badges, and we don’t yet know when exactly they’ll start shipping. Still, if you aren’t extremely impatient, ordering either of these from Wirefly will save you some cold hard cash, keep that in mind.
