... and it is a lot thinner than the photos in blue would suggest. It's about the same thickness as the 820... that is, to say, much skinnier than the 920.
It seemed snappy enough, though the screen didn't really blow me away.
T-Mo will have it Wednesday, along with the 8X.

Def getting the 810 here. FAR more important then the screen for me is the ability to have lots of storage. I go on long trips and like to have a large selection of music with me. The 64GB SD card is the big seller for me... even over the L920.

I currently have an HTC Titan and I'm not a smartphone power-user. I take a few photos now and then, listen to around 5-10 different songs and check facebook/twitter.
Even at 4.7" the old resolution seems clear enough to me, but I'm wondering if the 810 will come to Europe or if it's ONLY T-mobile. I live in Denmark and I've always purchased my phones unlocked.

Guys, with XBox Music and streaming, you don't need local storage anymore. Plus, T-Mobile 4G unlimited means you don't have to worry about caps. You can stream to your heart's content. No need for cumbersome libraries, syncing, and all that other Atari-era stuff...

Hence the desire to have a nice fat MicroSD stuffed full of music or videos. ;)

The cloud is simply not omni-present; an SD card is. Especially when I can store 64GB of music on it!
OTOH I compared the 8X and the 810 and found I could barely tell that the 8X had a higher res screen. In my mind that makes the significantly higher resolution a non-factor in determining which phone is best for me. Internally the 8X and 810 are identical so I find it a difficult argument at best to call the 8X high-end and the 810 mid range. Especially when the 810 offers the SD expansion, which is important for the way I use the phone. However, I'm sure the 8X is a better choice for other usage requirements.

Well, again, the "all-in pricing" of the 810 experience on T-Mobile is WAY lower than on other carriers, to be fair, if you're looking at an individual plan. You pay a bit more up front for the phone but a much lower price for equivalent services.
