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.
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.

What's the point then?

If the damn thing is still locked to ATT then there is no point in buying it out right. Not like they will give you a cheaper monthly rate.

For what its worth (I'm sure its not worth much) Straightalk works with just abotu any ATT or TMobile phone that has an accepted form factor for SIM card.
I have an ATT S3 that I purchased off contract for 550 and pay under 50 a month for unlimited everything and anticipated needing to unlock the phone to do so, but didn't need to. I'm sure the WP phones will be similar.

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