Best Buy is taking pre-orders for both the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X smartphones and is offering them at $149.99 and $99.99, respectively.
Those who are seeking to obtain a Nokia Lumia 920 on AT&T should be ready to pay $149.99 on a two-year contract, which is not a bad price for such a powerful device. The Lumia 920 is available in red, white, black, yellow, and cyan. On the other hand, the HTC 8X sports a $99.99 price tag and can be pre-ordered in purple.
Buyers can pre-order both handsets from Best Buy and AT&T right away if they so wish.

It is not certain how this would affect Nokia, time will tell when the six-month period is over and the sales report is released.
Both the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X are powered by Windows Phone 8, the specifications are as follows:
