A Windows Phone 8 smartphone will be the perfect gift for everyone, from the first-time smartphone user to the power-user. That’s why Wirefly is putting it front and center this holiday season.

RESTON, VA (PRWEB) November 15, 2012

Wirefly (http://www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones and smartphones, today announced special pricing for four hotly anticipated 4G Windows Phone 8 smartphones - Windows Phone 8X by HTC and Nokia Lumia 822 from Verizon Wireless and Windows Phone 8X by HTC and Nokia Lumia 810 from T-Mobile. Wirefly plans to stock its virtual shelves full of Windows Phone 8 smartphones by Microsoft from the nation’s most popular carriers, including Verizon Wireless and T-Mobile, as they become available - and at special Wirefly pricing that consumers are sure to appreciate this holiday shopping season.

Wirefly has always been about great prices and fantastic selection, and now with the introduction of the new Windows Phone 8 operating system and devices like the Nokia Lumia 822, Nokia Lumia 810 and Windows Phone 8X by HTC, the selection AND choice just got even better.

“Customers want a smartphone that fits effortlessly into their lives, and thanks to the robust Windows eco-system these phones do,” explained Andy Zeinfeld. “With a new Windows Phone 8 smartphone, a customer can move seamlessly from their home PC to Microsoft Office at work, and be connected everywhere in between.”

The latest iteration of Microsoft’s intuitive mobile platform, Windows Phone 8 promises to revolutionize the way consumers interact with their cell phones by delivering a truly personal phone experience that is as familiar and easy to use as a PC yet bursting with the most cutting-edge technology.

“A Windows Phone 8 smartphone will be the perfect gift for everyone, from the first-time smartphone user to the power-user,” added Zeinfeld. “That’s why Wirefly is putting it front and center this holiday season.”

Windows Phone 8 users will appreciate the seamless integration with the many Microsoft productivity tools they have come to rely on like Outlook, Excel, Word and PowerPoint. They will also fall in love with the many exciting new capabilities designed to bring together what customers care about most – ease of use, top-notch social network integration, exceptional multitasking, and rich mobile entertainment.

Of course, customers also want a smartphone that is, well, smart. The Windows Phone 8 smartphones automatically work to maximize the customer’s data plan, battery life and other resources. For example, Data sense, a Windows Phone 8-exclusive tool that will initially be available only on Verizon Wireless devices, helps conserve the a customer’s data allowance by compressing Web images, deferring data tasks to free Wi-Fi and automatically adjusting usage as the plan’s limit is approached. Data Sense also shows how much data is used per app. As a user approaches the limit, Data Sense sends out notifications to avoid overage fees and penalties.

Other noteworthy features of Microsoft’s operating system include: improved Live Tiles, Live Apps, advanced parental controls called Kid’s Corner, Xbox Live integration, Near Field Communication (NFC), Global Ready, and much more.
