SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: December 7, 2012

Welcome to Friday evening everyone - the weekend is beginning for most of us, but before we dive in, let's recap the news from the day.

Nokia's Lumia 920 has been prematurely priced up for its US-exclusive launch on AT&T, with Best Buy spilling the competitive costs for the Windows Phone 8 handset.
