Those who need a cheaper alternative, however, might consider checking out the Nokia Lumia 820, which AT&T is also going to release on November 9. The smartphone offers a 4.3-inch AMOLED screen, 8-megapixel camera, and a zippy Snapdragon S4 processor, all the while carrying a $50 on-contract price tag. Pre-orders for the Nokia Lumia 820 for AT&T will go live on November 7.
Last but not least, the HTC Windows Phone 8X is to join AT&T's ranks before Thanksgiving (November 22). The smartphone will be available in two variants - a 16GB model for $200 and a carrier-exclusive 8-gigger for $100. The latter will come in California Blue or Limelight (a shade of yellow). AT&T will be the only U.S. carrier offering the Limelight HTC 8X. Its specific release date is to be announced.
