Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for Windows Phone 8 “mobile phones”; note the plural.
While both the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC Windows Phone 8X were listed, the retailer has taken the Lumia 920 down Thanks to our eagle-eyed readers we found the Lumia 920 on Best Buy. However, the listed price of the phone , before it was yanked, was is $149.99 with a two-year contract. What’s left is the HTC Windows Phone 8X for $99.99 with the same two-year agreement ($599.99 outright) and it appears to be an 8GB flavor. There is no information on shipping or availability but with the Windows Phone 8 event coming October 29, next Monday is our best guess.
Meanwhile if you are in the UK or want to import phones, our friends over at Clove have the HTC Windows Phone 8X, HTC Windows Phone 8S, Nokia Lumia 920, Nokia Lumia 820, and the Samsung ATIV S listed. You can head over to the source links below to check out prices and expected availability dates.
Back in the US again, Negri Electronics has the unlocked Lumia 920 (yellow version) listed for pre-order at $698.50 unlocked.
