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?

I would be keeping the service anyway....why not go ahead and get a new phone. It's not like once the contract runs out that they will come down off the price of the monthly service since the subsidy has been fulfilled.
"If you look at the last five years, if you look at what major innovations have occurred in computing technology, every single one of them came from AMD. Not a single innovation came from Intel." -- AMD CEO Hector Ruiz in 2007
