Best Buy prices Nokia Lumia 920 at $149.99 and HTC 8X at $99, as AT&T opens preorders

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 launch event is just over a week away and already Best Buy and AT&T have begun releasing pricing for the Nokia and HTC flagships, pricing the Lumia 920 and HTC 8X at $149.99 and $99 respectively.

WPCentral reports (via The Verge) that Best Buy placed a new advertisement earlier today, listing the Lumia 920 for $149.99 (with a new two-year contract) in its yellow, red, white, cyan and black variants. The company has also set a price for an off-contract Lumia 920, setting a $599.99 price tag.

So. Much. Tech.

Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.

As for the HTC, Best Buy is pricing the sleek 8X at $99.99 on a new two-year contract but matches the Lumia 920 pricing when purchased without a contract.

Earlier in the month, AT&T announced that it would stock both devices, and today the company has opened preorders for the device – which can be selected during the checkout process on the Best Buy website. However, both Nokia and HTC’s smartphones are given a “Reserve today. Will ship when available” status.

Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 launch is set for October 29, the same day as when Google will present a range of new Android tablets and new Nexus smartphone. Microsoft is expected to unveil a number of unannounced Windows Phone 8 features and also confirm launch dates.
