Microsoft/Nokia/AT&T are going for the throat with Lumia 920 pricing

Is $99 for the Nokia Lumia 920 cheap enough to make you switch to Windows Phone 8?

Just FYI, but it sound like you want solid fundamentals and Windows Phone is the clear (like miles ahead) winner there. It is to the iPhone what the original iPhone was to old-skool smartphones. Sure, there's some stuff it doesn't have (although the amount of stuff you miss is shrinking rapidly and there are unique things you do get), but the basics are sooooo much better. The UI is superior, it's more responsive and everything is remarkably well integrated.

A great example is the messaging app. You can send a text, MSN, Skype or Facebook message from the messaging app, rather than having to open up four different apps. Also your conversation can change depending on what the person you're talking to has access to - and you don't need to figure it out, the app does it for you.

Also Jelly Bean Android phones are a LOT better than the previous editions of Android, possibly not iPhone (and definitely not WP) level, but pretty damn close. ICS on down are too shit for me to consider using. Jelly Bean made me think about using an Android phone full-time again.

In the end, I care about fundamentals and cloud integration, the two areas where WinPhone is superior. I care zero about apps, which is probably why I regard the iPhone (well, mostly it's crappy, unchanged-for-five-years-software) pretty much the worst high-end smartphone on the market.

I don't like the Nokia 920 (too heavy and bulky for me, although my wife wants one), but I think I'm going to go full-time Win8 with a HTC 8X or the Samsung WP8 handset.

I have an iPhone 4S, Galaxy SIII (rooted and with all the Samsung crap removed) and Lumia 800 btw, but the Lumia is my daily driver because it's just nicer to use.
