AT&T will begin taking pre-orders on its entire lineup of Windows Phone 8 devices on October 21st. This information comes from several sources linked to both AT&T and Microsoft. Those sources, claimed to be up-to-date on current plans, have revealed the pre-order date to The Verge.
This means thatall Windows Phone 8 devices that have so far been announced to be sold through AT&T will in fact have pre-orders available on said date. The Nokia Lumia 920, Samsung Ativ S, and HTC Windows Phone 8X are some of the top tier Windows Phone 8 devices to get in on.
Once pre-orders open up on October 21st, most devices will then release in early November. That’s not too bad of a waiting period, at all. Since we are talking about future Microsoft devices and pre-orders, on October 21st, the following tablets will also be available for pre-order: the Samsung Ativ Smart PC and the Asus Vivo Tab RT. Both tablets will release on October 26th.
