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.

For those that need a refresher course, the Lumia 920 features a 4.5" WXGA display, 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 8.7MP PureView camera, 32GB of onboard storage, NFC, Qi wireless charging and Windows Phone 8.
 
In other pre-order news, the HTC 8X is being offered at Best Buy for $99.99 on contract and for $599.99 unsubsidized.

Unfortunately, I have had several Nokias and wouldn't touch them in a fit.

Every time they have failed due to "moisture ingress". The last time Nokia said there was clear evidence of damage from multiple exposures to water over several months and refused to replace it. The only problem has been that I had only just taken possession of it days before it failed. My friends have refused to take delivery of Nokias as the boxes even showed signs of water stains in the shop.

Something is drastically wrong with Nokia's quality control. Never had a problem with an HTC phone. Perhaps Nokia should pay attention to the pathetic quality and then their market share might go up again.
