Buy a Windows 8 PC or laptop and score a 'free' Nokia Lumia 820 from CompUSA

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.
- Display 4.3" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus, Dual-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 8 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 1650 mAh(8.1h 3G talk time)

Guess that means all those Buy 1 Get 1on Verizion for their Droid line means that Android can't sell and must be bundled with another free phone. Wait a minute....

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.
