WP8 Device Pre-Orders Commence at Best Buy

Best Buy has kicked off pre-orders for Nokia and HTC-developed smartphones running on Microsoft's latest mobile operating system. The US retailer's website lists the Lumia 920 for $149.99 through a two-year contract. The price for the device without the contract is $599.99. Meanwhile, the HTC 8X will be available for $99.99 with a contract and $599.99 without one.

The listings, however, don't detail when those who pre-order can expect delivery. All it says is that devices "will ship when available." AT&T and Nokia had announced a partnership earlier in the month where the former will exclusively carry the Lumia 920 in the U.S. during November.

Microsoft will officially announce Windows Phone 8 on October 29, three days after its Windows 8 operating system launches.

    Honest question, does anyone here actually know someone with a Windows based phone. I know I don't everyone has an Android or Iphone.

    Wouldn't mind seeing what Windows 8 phones are like now I had a windows mobile based phone before Android was around, it was quite good for what it was back than. Though I don't believe I have ever seen one, even in stores.
