Yesterday on contract pricing for AT&T’s Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 smartphones was announced. The pre-order pricing for the Lumia 920 with a two-year contract is $99.99. The on contract pricing for the Lumia 820 with a two-year agreement is $49.99.
With the AT&T product pages for both phones now live, the official off contract pricing has been revealed. If you want the Lumia 920 sans contract, you’ll need to cough up $449.99. The Lumia 820 is a little cheaper with a no contract price of $399.99.
Obviously, the upside to paying those no commitment prices is if you decide you don’t like AT&T you take your phone elsewhere or cancel service. It’s worth noting that both of those devices are quite expensive when you compare them to unlocked Android smartphones such as the $299 LG Nexus 4. If Windows Phone 8 is your thing, the off contract pricing might not be a big deal.
If you’ve managed to miss all the coverage of these Nokia smartphones, they are basically same this side of the screen size. The 920 has a 4.5-inch 1280 x 768 resolution screen. The 820 has a 4.3-inch screen. Both devices have the same QUALCOMM snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. Both also have the same 1 GB of RAM.
