Holy Cow! That's cheap!
Last month, Best Buy jumped the gun a bit with pricing for the new
Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone 8 device
. At the time, the electronics retailer listed pricing for the smartphone at
$149 with a new two-year contract
However, AT&T has just officially opened up the pre-order lines for the Lumia 920, and it's only charging $99 with a two-year contract. Its lowly Lumia 820 sibling will be available for $49 with a two-year contract. Pre-orders begin tomorrow.
Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has already stated he expects that Windows Phone 8 sales and market share would “
”, and this bargain basement pricing may be just the ticket to get some traction in the competitive smartphone market.
So what do you guys think? Is $99 for a flagship phone enough to get you to switch from iOS or Android to Windows Phone 8?

Neglected to mention that it also comes with a free wireless charging pad.
I don't know why people are going on about the contract like they are something new. There's no point in getting an unlocked one in the U.S. anyway until T-mobile refarms the 1900 band for their HSPA+, unless you want to be stick on Edge speeds.
Personally, I'm going to wait until the refarm is complete and I can get an unlock code, then I'll just pay the ETF. The subsidized cost plus the ETF is still cheaper than buying the phone outright.
