The Optus smartphone range will grow by two new Windows Phones over the weekend, with the HTC Windows Phone 8S and Nokia Lumia 820 joining the telco's line-up. The HTC comes out cheaper, at AU$0 upfront on an AU$35 per month plan.

The Nokia Lumia 820 similarly has no upfront payment, but only on an AU$50 plan or higher.

Telstra continues offering only premium Windows Phone offerings, adding the HTC flagship Windows Phone 8X to its range, alongside the previously announced Nokia Lumia 920. Telstra will begin selling the 8X online first, from 4 December, with in-store sales beginning a week later.

I wonder how long Telstra's exclusive for the 920 is. Seriously thinking about the 820 though

Its probably a stupid qustion, but we aren't getting the version of the 8X which includes wireless charging that Verizon are getting are we?

Oh and any information you have on pricing for the 8X would be much appreciated as well.
