Swisscom’s Windows Phone playbook revealed

A reader has been able to get Swiss phone carrier Swisscom to reveal their Windows Phone playbook for the next 4 months..

The news is relatively encouraging, showing a wide range of Windows Phone 8 handset to be available on the carrier.

The HTC 8X is set to arrive in Mid-November.

This will be followed by the HTC 8S, Nokia Lumia 920 and the Samsung ATIV S at the end of the month.

Lastly the Nokia Lumia 820 will hit the carrier in January 2013.

It seems there will be something to keep everyone happy, and it is interesting to see the pattern of HTC’s Windows Phone 8 handsets having a jump on Nokia’s which appears to be repeating on many carriers.
