„The more the merrier” seems to be AT&T’s motto these days. Earlier this week we brought to you the news that the Ma Bell network would be adding as many as seven new devices to its portfolio this month, from smartphones to cool and creative gadgets. Three of these devices, namely the HTC Desire Eye, the HTC One M8 Windows and the Nokia Lumia 830 were launched today and are waiting for you at AT&T stores.
AT&T New Phones of November
The most affordable of the trio, the Nokia Lumia 830 will set you back $99.99 with a two-year contract or $449.99 if you prefer to pay full price at checkout. The phone is also available with AT&T Next installment plan in which case it will cost you $18.75 with Next 18 or $22.50 with Next 12.
A notch higher on the price ladder sits the HTC Desire Eye – AT&T is selling this handset for $149.99 on contract and $549.99 without carrier agreement. Prefer to pay the phone off in monthly installments? No problem, that’s what AT&T Next plan is for. You just need $22.92 or $27.50 per month with Next 18 and 12, respectively.
Finally, the most expensive member of the team, the HTC One M8 Windows, is priced at $199.99 on contract – a typical price for a higher-end device. With regular price set at $669.99, the device is also available for $27.92 per month with Next 18 or $33.50 per month with Next 12.
Now that you know how much money you should get from your piggy bank, let’s see what exactly that money will get you. More demanding customers will probably go for the HTC One M8 Windows, as it is the most premium handset of the three. It features all-metal zero-gap body, 5-inch Full HD display, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable memory. Like the Android version, this model also sports the rear Duo Camera, 5-megapixel front-facing camera and BoomSound. The phone runs Windows Phone 8.1 complete with Cortana.
The second HTC phone, the Desire Eye, is of Android kind, 4.4 KitKat to be more exact. This 5.2-inch Full HD handset is also powered by the Snapdragon 801 chip and offers 2GB of RAM together with 16GB of internal memory expandable via microSD slot. Instead of the Duo Camera, the Eye is equipped with a 13-megapixel main shooter. What is especially worth noting, though, exactly the same sensor is located on the front making the Eye a perfect choice for selfie lovers.
Last but not least, there’s the Nokia Lumia 830 – last phone to come with Nokia’s moniker. This mid-ranger brings a 5-inch HD screen,1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of built-in memory. Other key features include 10-megapixel PureView rear camera with Carl Zeiss optics and Optical Image Stabilization, 1-megapixel front-facing camera, NFC and 2,200 mAh removable battery. As other Lumia phones, the 830 runs Windows Phone 8.1.
Today, AT&T made a diverse group of customers very happy, including Android and Windows Phone enthusiasts. Moreover, the new phones range from rather costly to pretty affordable, so it’s clearly a “something for everyone” kind of offer.
