Above screenshot has been leaked by TmoNews, which surprisingly shows that Lumia 810 is getting EOLed (End of Life) in May at T-Mobile. More, surprisingly though, it says that Lumia 810 is replaced by Lumia 521 which is reconfirmed as coming on 24th of April. If you check at T-Mobile website, Lumia 810 listing has been removed and only refurbished Lumia 810 can be purchased now.
Lumia 810 getting retired so early is really surprising as Nokia’s Chris Weber has mentioned plans to have low-end, mid-range and high-end devices at each of AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile. Lumia 521 is the low-end and high-end Catwalk may be due in June to T-Mobile. So, what happens to the mid-range then?
Vodafone Australia on its support page has mentioned that from the 17th of April 2013, Microsoft will start rolling out the Windows Phone 8 product release 1.1.5 software update for the Nokia Lumia 820. According to the change log it makes Lumia 820 4G enabled.
