WIND Mobile did a bit of teasing on Twitter by proudly saying that “very soon” they’ll be sharing information about Windows Phone 8 device. Unfortunately they couldn’t give an exact date or specifically what device, but considering there’s only four smartphones to choose from it certainly limits the choices (Nokia Lumia 920, HTC 8X, HTC 8S and the Samsung ATIV S). It’s probably the Windows Phone 8S by HTC. Hopefully the “very soon” is within a few days.

    8s isn’t exclusive to virgin mobile in north america ?

  • arrow22

    Better not be the 8S. I can compromise on the 8X, but the 920 is really what I want.

    And why would Nokia make the Canadien 920 compatible with AWS (AT&T’s version is not) if it wasn’t coming to Wind or Mobilicity? I’ll remain optimistic.

    It’s a Huawai!

  • Pablo Moses

    Good choice and don’t forget to add BB10 in February 2013 in the Wish list.

  • Len

    Well I’m personally hoping for a long shot of the 620

  • Frederick Edwards

    Nokia UK tweeted that UK exclusivity of the 920 ends in January, hopefully the same thing happens in Canada.

    These are the bands from the 920 box:
    W-CDMA/HSPA: 850/900/1900/2100/1700_2100
    LTE: 700/850/1900/1700_2100
    GSM: 850/900/1800/1900 (quad)

    Great to see WIND diversify their phone OS portfolio. As much as I love Android, I welcome the diversity, I know a couple people interested in getting a Windows Phone 8 device on WIND.

    For NEW subscribers only!!!

  • Traktor Pete

    It’s either an 8s or that ugly Lumia 810.
    We’ll see.

    Great news from WIND , hopefully soon :)

  • BigRedMachine

    Pissed off at Telus for their lack of WP8 support. Was going to move to Rogers but would much rather move to Wind. Might have to wait and see what they come up with…

  • Nataku

    Omg I would love them even more if it’s the Nokia 920… In colours besides black…u kno like red… Yellow… Blue -_- … But who knows it might actually be a low and wp8 if so then there’s no point for me to upgrade from my current HTC radar 4g

    wind taking control once again.

  • pacalis

    Please, please, please be a Nokia!!

  • bilzkh

    Might be one of the Lumia 620 or 8X.

  • Blaine

    Couldn’t they also get the Nokia Lumia 820, and/or the Lumia 620?
    The 920 is exclusive to Rogers. The Ativ S makes the most sense as it is launching on all the carriers at the same time.
    Personally I think the 820 would be the best, as no other carrier has it in Canada

    The Huawei Ascend W3 is a very nice WP8 device. Hope they get the Nokia 810/920 also.

  • Darth Paton

    why can’t it be 820 or 810 or 620? Sheesh Mobilesyrup…

  • Micheal
