AT&T just made it official: The Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 with Windows Phone 8 go on sale Friday for $99.99 and $49.99. But you can preorder both phones from the AT&T website starting tomorrow.
The Windows Phone 8X by HTC will be available “before Thanksgiving,” AT&T said. The company will offer a 16 GB model for $199.99 and an 8 GB version for $99.99.
The Nokia Lumia 920 sports an 8.7-megapixel PureView camera with optical image stabilization technology and a Carl Zeiss lens. It’s designed to capture blur-free pictures and videos even in low-light. It also has a big 4.5-inch PureMotion HD+ display housed in scratch-proof Gorilla Glass. The phone comes in red, white, black, cyan, and yellow. As a bonus, AT&T is also tossing in a free wireless charging plate (while supplies last).
The Lumia 820 features a 4.3-inch ClearBlack display, 8MP camera, and exchangeable color shells (sold separately). Like its bigger sibling, the Lumia 820 comes with exclusive apps including Nokia Drive (turn-by-turn voice navigation), Nokia Music (free streaming music service), and Nokia City Lens (an augmented reality city guide). The phone comes in black.
The Windows Phone 8X by HTC has a 4.3-inch 720p HD display, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2.1-megapixel, wide-angle 88 degree front-facing camera. It’s also the first Windows Phone 8 phone with Beats Audio technology for studio-quality sound. The 16GB model at AT&T comes in California Blue, while the 8GB model is available in Limelight (yellow)—an AT&T exclusive.
