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?

To me the price IS an issue, as with most things I buy. Microsoft is trying to make a splash on a saturated marked (Blackberry and Palm squeezed out). I don't see even a hint of them trying to subsidize their products. Looks like they got too cocky with the preliminary positive feedback for their new phones and tablets. Lumia 920 might be $99 for ATT, but for VZW, people are expected to pay that much for Lumia 820 (well, 822). On a 2 year contract, these phones are supposed to be free, in order to gain market share.
We'll find out soon how brilliant Microsoft's marketing is...
