Yes and No.. T-mobile / Verizon and AT&T will have the 8X, ONLY AT&T has the 920, and Verizon is the ONLY one with the ATIV. They all get a 8xx version. So if I were to take a guess the 8X will be the big seller, followed by the 8xx series, then the 920 and ATIV due to limited availability.

Folks like I said before when Windows smart phones get the high tech gear for the
Microsoft modern UI to run on more people would buy the Windows smart phones.
the 7,5 mango smart phones just did not have the state of the Art technology in them to make people desire to Own a windows smart phone. most People think that if I have to be on a 2 year contract to own a smart phone it had better be worth it.
Well folks now the windows smart phones have the technology to run them that make them worth buying. the lumia 920 and the HTC 16 gig 8X and the Samsung Ativ are smart phones that have all the great tech a smart should have and People know it and will buy more windows smart phones

I REALLY think it comes to the phones and colors. Having the 920, 8x0 and 8X in my hand they are all a bit different but all light clean, and what makes them different and standout in the stores are the color options. I wonder if MS/HTC/Nokia has patented the color smartphone, so if iOS tries to issue theirs in multiple colors they can sue them :)

AT&T store in Midlothian, VA had a few black Nokia 920, and a few 820. All the colored phones and the 8X was out of stock. ALL the reps loved the phones and talked them up. A HUGE difference over the Win7 launch. Verizon said they would be in stores on the 18th. BTW played with the Nokia for a few minutes.. It was AWESOME.. love the way they do the different size tiles. Can't wait for T-mobiles launch.
