Best Buy has made the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X Windows Phones available for preorder on its web site. Best Buy is charging $149.99 for the Lumia 920 and $99.99 for the 8X. Best Buy is offering the black, cyan, white, red, and yellow versions of the Lumia 920, and the purple version of the 8X. Customers must sign a new two-year contract with AT&T in order to get those subsidized prices. The off-contract full retail price is listed as $599.99 for both phones. AT&T has previously committed to selling both devices, but this is the first time a price point has been given for either phone. Best Buy does not list a shipping date for the Lumia 920 or 8X, but says they will ship "when available." AT&T has not said when the devices will go on sale.
Nokia pushes all sorts of boundaries with the Lumia 920, its feature-laden flagship smartphone for AT&T. If the luminescent colors don't attract you, the big screen, LTE 4G, and dual-core performance might.
HTC delivers one of the first Windows Phone 8 smartphones in the 8X, a thin slab that includes LTE 4G, an 8-megapixel camera, and a dual-core processor. The 8X's spec sheet may be full, but we found a few things it's missing.
Microsoft has tapped HTC to build the iconic launch phones for Windows Phone 8. These sibling phones are similar, with the Windows Phone 8X being the higher-end of the two.
Nokia debuted two new Lumia smartphones today and Phone Scoop had a change to take a close-up look at the new hardware, both of which are running Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 platform. Here are our initial impressions.
