Windows Phone 8 is out but availability and options from the Irish Mobile Operators isn't that great. In this post I list what options you and I have in Ireland when it comes to the latest smartphones powerd by Windows Phone 8 OS.
The new phones are from Nokia (820 & 920), HTC (8S & 8X), Samsung (Ativ S) and Huawei (Ascend W1 - unofficial).
Vodafone: Nokia 820, HTC 8X, HTC 8S - Q1 2013 (4G network launch)
O2: Samsung Ativ S (December 2012)
Three: HTC 8X, HTC 8S (Soon)
Meteor: HTC 8X Blue (€599), HTC 8S (€349 - Soon)
