Nokia is officially bringing its Windows Phones to the U.S., announcing today plans to release the Lumia 710 on T-Mobile on January 11th. The announcement of the phone marks the first Nokia Windows Phone to make it to U.S. soil, and also the first Windows phone in general to be billed as a 4G device, running on T-Mobile's HSPA 14.4 network.
T-Mobile will soon offer an unusual dual-touchscreen Android-based smartphone, in the form of LG DoublePlay. Billed as the 2011 LG U.S. National Texting Championship's official device, the DoublePlay is apparently aimed at busy users who need to text, e-mail and use social media in a timely fashion.
T-Mobile has announced that it will soon offer a highly spec'd smartphone with its 4G (HSPA+) network support in the U.S., in the form of the HTC Amaze 4G. Slated for an October 12th release, the Amaze features a 4.3-inch qHD (540x960) touchscreen, along with an 8-megapixel camera equipped with several features tailored for fans of smartphone photography.
