It was just yesterday that Microsoft took the wraps off Windows Phone 8, thus confirming the reports that Windows Phone 7.x devices will not be upgradeable, along with the announcement of several new manufacturing partners. However we’re sure that as affordable as Windows Phone handsets tend to be, many are wondering that as far as a stateside launch is concerned, which are the carriers can we expect to offer Windows Phone 8 handsets with a subsidy (along with a contract, of course)?
The folks at PC Mag have reached out to various carriers in the US, with the four major ones included of course, and based on their response, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile have stated that they will be carrying Windows Phone 8 devices while Sprint remained mum (but not denying it at the same time). Smaller regional carriers such as Cricket and MetroPCS have stated that they are still considering the move, although they have not completely ruled out the possibility either. So if you’re planning on getting your hands on a brand new Windows Phone 8 handset, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile are probably the carriers you’ll want to keep an eye out for.
