AT&T posts off-contract pricing for the Lumia 920

We reported yesterday that AT&T priced the Lumia 920 at $99 with a new, two-year contract. This is a shockingly low price tag for a bleeding edge, flagship smartphone from any manufacturer or carrier.
 
Microsoft is no doubt looking to improve its fortunes in the smartphone market, but it remains to be seen if the lowball pricing will be enough to jumpstart Windows Phone 8 sales.

 
With that being said, AT&T has also posted the off contract pricing for the Lumia 920. If you decide to forgo the two-year contract, you'll have to fork over $450 for the handset. Unfortunately, despite the fact that you don't have a contract attached to handset, it is still locked to AT&T's network. So don't even think about trying to run off to T-Mobile or another carrier.
 
Google's recently announced Nexus 4 is priced at $299 (8GB) and $349 (16GB) for an unlocked phone, without contract. The Nexus 4 generally outpaces the Lumia 920 in raw horsepower, but falls short when it comes to its 8MP camera and it commits a mortal sin by lacking LTE.

Thank you Brandon for writing "$450" in the title, instead of the utterly ridiculous $449.999999999999999999 that so called "marketing gurus" are so fond of. I feel insulted every time I have to read $99.99 instead of the actual $100

and just think...if we did away with that crap--and priced things like they do in europe (tax-included in posted price)--then we could have abolished the penny already.
