Get a free Nokia Lumia 820 with the purchase of a Windows 8 computer

Is 'free' 'free' when it requires you to sign a two-year contract? That is a question that you can answer with your buds when you discuss philosophy while watching Shark Tank on television. For us, anytime a new smartphone is listed as 'free', our ears perk up. So what has us looking like Spock at the moment? CompUSA is offering a 'free' Nokia Lumia 820 with the purchase of any Windows 8 PC or laptop. But the reason we are qualifying the 'free' is that it still requires you to sign a two year contract with AT&T.

Suppose you want to buy the phone and not the computer. Could you buy the phone and get the PC for free? No. But you can buy the Nokia Lumia 820 from CompUSA for $49.99 with that good ol' two-year contract. If you don't want to be tied up for a couple of years, you can purchase the phone off contract for $379.99.

Like we didn't see it coming. I'm talking about Windows 8. The reviews have been horrible for it. The business world is rebuking it. Productivity? Forget about it. Some search features don't seem thought out or not finished. What a surprise Microsoft released an unfinished OS. All it has going for it is the UI. Some people like it, and that's cool. I think it's ugly and plain. This is coming from an ex Microsoft fanboy. My mother worked for Microsoft growing up. She is part of something called Microsoft Alumni. She can buy products at dirt cheap prices, and I still won't touch it. She offered it for a Christmas present, and I said no. You can't even give it to me.

No, this is a smart marketing move, and I hope it spreads to other stores and more phones to choose from. Also, would one be able to buy like a cheap netbook and get this? Sell the netbook, pay the ETF, free phone.

This sounds like a stunt Apple would try to pull off; alas, the flock only grazes on the forbidden iTooty-Fruity.
