Nokia/T-Mobile event scheduled for December 14

Nokia T Mobile Announcement 560x455 Nokia/T Mobile event scheduled for December 14

Here we go! Nokia and, shockingly, T-Mobile have scheduled a press event for Wednesday, December 14 at 7:00 p.m. The event will almost certainly be the US launch for Nokia’s fantastic Windows Phone handsets, which have been selling like gangbusters in the UK.

It was widely assumed that AT&T would be the premiere launch partner for Nokia, as it has been for the rest of the Windows Phone manufacturers. The company is currently in negotiations with Nokia for a rumored launch in late January. Of course, this might be referring to the unreleased Lumia 900, which is supposedly a higher-end device.

While the Lumia 800, formerly known as the “Sea Ray,” will likely remain a UK-exclusive, the Lumia 710 is pretty much guaranteed to be available on T-Mobile. An FCC filing for the Lumia 710 displays T-Mobile branding as plain as day. The device can also be found on the Nokia US website.

We can’t wait to get our hands on one of Nokia’s US devices. The handsets may not include front-facing cameras and large screens–yet–but the hardware itself is fantastic. It will be very interesting to see how the US responds to Nokia’s devices, even on a smaller carrier like T-Mobile.

Why is it ok to be made of plastic when you cost 530 bucks unlocked (like my Galaxy S2) but it’s so wrong when you cost 50 bucks like this Nokia? Why is it ok to last barely 10 hours when you cost 649 US$ on the cheapest unlocked version (iPhone 4S) but it’s “not bad for a 50 US$ phone”… if review sites are going to bash a budget phone because it is made of plastic, then they shouldn’t even have mercy on a high-end device that’s made of plastic too. Or the battery, or the LACK of a camera buton (again, my Galaxy S2 or the iPhone).. ‘cmon engadget, we know you like.. hate Nokia, but you can also be more fair…
