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?

If I wasn't hooked on the Note's stylus, I would get a Lumia 920 for sure.
I hope Samsung brings its inevitable S-Pen software ports for Win8 tablets over to a WP8/WP9 Note at some point in the future.

The S-Pen plus that big, beautiful screen was making me waffle between the Lumia 920 and the GNote2. But, saving $200 (which can go toward the purchase of a full-fledged tablet, or maybe even food or something unimportant like that) plus the desire to give WP8 a go is enough to push me to the 920, which is a beautiful phone in any case.
Plus, with that super-sensitive screen, I can hopefully use a regular stylus for jotting down notes and such anyway.
