With the debut of Windows Phone 8 a little more than a week away, Best Buy has begun taking pre-orders for Nokia and HTC flagship smartphones running Microsoft’s new mobile operating system. The electronics retailer’s Web site now lists the Lumia 920 for $149.99 with a two-year commitment and off-contract at $599.99. It also lists the HTC 8X for $99.99 with contract and $599.99 without contract. The listing doesn’t indicate when customers can expect delivery, saying only that the phones “will ship when available.” Earlier this month, AT&T and Nokia announced a partnership in which AT&T will carry the Lumia 920 in the U.S. Read the full story at CNET.
