AT&T to launch Nokia Lumia 920 for $100, Lumia 820 priced at $50, 16GB HTC 8X to cost $200
Well, what do you know: the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 will cost only $100 with a 2-year contract, not $150, as it was previously believed. Word comes from the carrier itself, which just announced the pricing of its upcoming Windows Phone 8 handsets, along with their release dates. Everyone eyeing that Lumia 920, with PureView camera technology, high-res screen, and wireless charging capabilites, should mark November 9 in their calendars. AT&T will start accepting pre-orders for the smartphone on November 7. For a limited time and while supplies last, the carrier will throw in a free wireless charging plate with the purchase of a Lumia 920.

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.

Any takers?

Do i blame HTC or AT&T for the pricing??? 'cause 8X's price is downright stupid...who's going to buy that when one can get the 920 for half the price?? ...and considering their status in the market...this is not a good move!

Don't get it twisted AT&T is as well but they are doing the right thing in this case.

My guess is, you haven't actually played around with these phones side by side. It is easy to compare specs but when you have these both in your hands, the HTC is pretty sweet. Nokia has the sweet spot at $99 and I am sure $199 is to high of a price. Go into a store and barter down to $150 and the HTC is worth every penny.

Wow fail on HTC with bad pricing. $200 for a HTC? Really. They usually come out with good pricing. Hard to compete with Nokia when they are offering a Decent product and a beautiful price point.

HTC done decided since they were already slowing sinking their ship, misewell throw the anchor to way it down a bit! Bye bye HTC. I see minimal WP8 SALES for you. I loved your products but your advertising has failed and your pricing is even worse.

When you say Windows phone, that means Nokia and only Nokia. Samsung, you were so lucky because Nokia didn't adopt Android.
