Nokia and T-Mobile USA today announced the upcoming availability of the Nokia Lumia 810, which will be exclusive to T-Mobile, and is, essentially, a variant of the recently announced, Windows Phone 8 powered, Nokia Lumia 820.  

The Nokia Lumia 810 will not support LTE, instead it will rely on T-Mobile's "4G" network (HSDPA+) for data connectivity, which means it will support WCDMA 1700 (Band IV) and 1900 (Band II) frequencies. T-Mobile said the device would be available in the "coming weeks", but did not announce any pricing information.
