Nokia Lumia 920 confirmed at $149.99 on contract by Nokia's mobile site
The Windows Phone 8 powered Nokia Lumia 920 has yet to be introduced by AT&T even though the device is expected to be an exclusive for the carrier in the United States. Even without the official word from AT&T, we have a strong indication that the phone will be priced at $149.99 with a signed two year contract. Back in October, Best Buy started to take pre-orders of the device for $149.99 before the listing was removed. Auction site eBay also got into the act together with Best Buy on a pre-sale of the Nokia Lumia 920 that had the same $149.99 price. Both times, the off-contract price was listed at $599.

Nokia's mobile web site happens to show a Live Tile that on a PC comes up static. Look at it from your phone and the same tile shows the $149.99 two-year contract pricing for the Nokia Lumia 920. You can check it out by clicking on the sourcelink from a mobile phone.

The Nokia Lumia 920 is certainly priced to sell. At $149.99, the phone includes 32GB of native storage and a free wireless charging pad. You can be sure that quite a few of these phones will be found under the tree this year. AT&T is expected to launch the handset on November 11th.

Could you please provide a link for that? because ebay is honestly selling the factory unlocked version of this phone for 800 to 1000 dollars! Much like the iphone 5 :( http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p4712.m570.l1313&_nkw=nokia+lumia+920&_sacat=0&_from=R40

Agree, this is a good price for that type of phone. Good job Nokia, MS.

is doomed? "But does all this onboard technology make Nokia's Lumia 920 the best cameraphone on the block? Can it outdo the iPhone 5 in low-light conditions? Does it beat the HTC 8X, another new Windows Phone 8 handset? Is it good enough to replace a stand-alone compact camera? Answers below. Surprising Stuff! Actually, the answer to all those questions is no. The Lumia 920 didn't perform as well as expected in our standard set of lab tests for smartphone cameras. In fact, we were surprised to see that this phone isn't really up to much when it comes to taking photos."http://www.digitalversus.com/mobile-phone/nokia-lumia-920-p14369/nokia-lumia-920-camera-test-pureview-rescue-n26786.html "The colors can be odd – while most of the time we’re getting photos that look good, often they don’t appear to be “correct.” Have a peek at our Nokia Lumia 920 camera hands-on post (with bonus comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S III and see how diverse the photos can be. These color variations as well as the end result of photos that with one device appear to be much sharper than the Lumia 920 mean that we’ve got software at work here that attempts to create for you a finished image – not just something raw, but one that always looks “good.” "http://www.slashgear.com/att-nokia-lumia-920-review-03255516/

if u want innovation > 920 wannabe cool > i5

7. Hemlocke unregistered

Yes, obviously innovation-packed, with the Nokia advanced smartphone OS, their Nokia custom SoC, and incredibly thin and light body housing top components. It does have a nice camera and some nice proprietary apps, but that's it. Nothing is exactly revolutionary about it, it is fat and heavy, and the OS is bloated (~20 GB of free space? GTFO!).

if some stood in long queues for iphone 5, which came with 2 year old specs then this phone is worth all the props it deserve

other good things in L920 screen,camera,durability,colors,MAPS,wireless charging,PRICE.

You are correct about the maps, and those maps, and the rest of the Nokia apps, will be wonderful additions to the iPhone 7 (Since the acquisition will take place too late because iPhone 6 engineering prototypes are already in use).

You are day dreaming :)

32. Hemlocke unregistered

No, that is no daydream. A $10 billion dollar market capitalization and flagging revenue streams, with a lot of valuable IP, sounds like a prime acquisition target. Hell, it would save Apple roughly $600 million a quarter to buy Nokia. There really is no tech company that could stop such a purchase, should Apple decide to undertake that course of action.

Yeah I'm pretty sure Nokia would sell to Microsoft before they would sell to Apple. Considering their market strategy and product offering, it would make absolutely no sense to sell to Apple. And yeah, Microsoft does have enough cash lying around to bid higher than Apple would be willing to go to buy Nokia if it came to that.

It's heavy!, It's thick!, It's limited app selections...but it's have better display (4.5" 332ppi vs 4" 326 ppi), better camera, wireless charging, non scratch policarbonate (sorry scratchy iPhone5), multiple color options (awesome matte CYAN color), killer price, awesome offline Nokia Maps (uff...iOS Maps) and much more innovative software than the iPhone5 that have the same old school looking software since 2007.
