Best Buy offers up two Windows Phone 8 pre-orders

Many are questioning Nokia's decision to make the Lumia 920 an AT&T exclusive given its dreadful position in the U.S. market, but that isn't stopping the smartphone company from going "full steam ahead" with its one-carrier strategy. WPCentral noted today that Best Buy is now taking pre-orders for the Lumia 920 at $149.99 with a new, two-year contract. Those that wish to purchase the device unsubsidized will have to fork over $599.99.

In other pre-order news, the HTC 8X is being offered at Best Buy for $99.99 on contract and for $599.99 unsubsidized.

LOL since when does any potential iPhone buyer care about specs?

IMO the Lumia 920 is the best smartphone outside the Galaxy Note II (which isn't for everyone due to the size, but for me, is pretty much the perfect phone that also makes ARM tablets obsolete). The iPhone5 is the best small smartphone, i.e. for those who prioritize small size and weight but still want a good smartphone.

However, Apple's brand is still too strong. It'll also take a year before MS can leverage Win8 to get an app marketplace that rivals that of Android and iOS. Those two factors will keep the 920 from the sales it deserves.
