Windows Phone 8 hardware availability coming into focus

With today's announcement of Windows Phone 8, Microsoft shed a little light on hardware availability. Windows Phone 8 devices will become available through various European providers this weekend. We will see U.S.. and global availability roll out through the month of November.

In the U.S.. Market look for look for Verizon to offer the Lumia 822, HTC 8X and a new Samsung Odyssey (December release). AT&T will offer the Lumia 920, 820, and the HTC 8X. Pricing was not made available for Verizon or AT&T and availability was described as "sometime in November".

We do have a little more information from T-Mobile as far as availability is concerned.  T-Mobile is slated to offer the Nokia Lumia 810 for $99 and the 16GB version of the HTC 8X for $149.

More as this develops and hopefully, we'll have a better picture from AT&T and Verizon sooner than later.
