MTS confirms plans to carry Nokia Lumia 830

The Nokia Lumia 830 is heading to several Canadian carriers this month, including Rogers, Fido, Bell, SaskTel and TELUS.

Now, we have good news MTS customers. The wireless carrier has stated that it will be adding the Lumia 830 to its lineup. On the company forum, MTS rep Gary noted, “We are planning on launching this device, however, launch date details are not available at this time.”

This will also be the first WP8 smartphone in Canada to feature Microsoft’s Cortana personal assistant. However, as we reported last week, it will be an alpha build. Upon launch, Cortana warns the user she “still has a lot to learn in your region, so not everything will work entirely smoothly at first.”
