Want to get a Nokia Lumia device on T-Mobile’s network and take advantage of the carrier’s newly announce LTE capabilities? Well if the Nokia Lumia 810 was on your list, you might want to rethink that decision because according to Randy Meyerson, Senior Director of Product Marketing at T-Mobile, the Lumia 810 will unfortunately not be able to receive the update that would enable its LTE connectivity. According to Meyerson, “I’m following up as per my note last night. Unfortunately, the Nokia Lumia 810 is not upgradable to LTE. While it is true that it has a chipset that is LTE-capable in certain circumstances, the variant that was used in this device can’t be enabled for LTE.”
Indications of the Lumia 810 being LTE-enabled were discovered earlier this year through an FCC filing. However the Lumia 810 was not mentioned as one of the devices that would have its LTE capabilities enabled as only the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was mentioned. In any case if the Lumia 810 is the handset you were after, we guess you will just have to make do without 4G LTE, at least for now.
