AT&T Announces Lumia 920, 820, HTC 8X Pricing, Availabilty
Windows Phone 8 handsets are just about to drop, though many of us have still been wondering when exactly when we’d get the specifics on just how they’d arrive. Yesterday, we thought we finally had the scoop on the Nokia Lumia 920 and its launch on AT&T, tipped to arrive for just about $150 on-contract. It turns out that was not just a little premature, but slightly off, as well; today AT&T makes things official, announcing pricing and availability for the Lumia 920, Lumia 820, and HTC Windows Phone 8X.
Instead of $150, the Lumia 920 will sell for just under $100. Just like we heard rumored, AT&T will sell the phone with a free wireless charging plate, even at this lowered price. The carrier calls this a limited time offer, so you’ll want to act fast to secure your free wireless charger. The 820 doesn’t include the charger, though the phone will sell for just about $50.
Things get a little more expensive for the HTC 8X, with a 16GB model selling for nearly $200 on-contract, or just $100 for the 8GB version; that’s pretty costly for an extra 8GB.
Pre-orders of the Lumias start tomorrow, November 7, with the phones finally going up for sale on November 9. Unfortunately, AT&T is still being cagey about the 8X’s launch, only saying that it will arrive before Thanksgiving.
