According to media reports, AT&T said on Tuesday that the company will sell Nokia Lumia 820 at a price of $49.99, and a price of $99.99 to sell the flagship model Lumia 920, the HTC Windows Phone 8X price is $199.99.
Nokia bet the company’s future all on the Microsoft Windows Phone. HTC mainly sells Android phones, but hopes to diversify its businesses through Windows Phone 8. These Nokia and HTC three products are crucial for Microsoft, which is hoping to challenge Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Android phones with the help of Windows Phone 8.
Market research firm Current Analysis analyst Avi Greengart said, the low price of Nokia mobile phone made it clear that, compared with profit, shipments is more important for Nokia. Nokia hopes to obtain a large number of users in the United States. Such low prices of mobile phones, but Nokia mobile phones can not be hot selling, the only reason is that consumers are not interested in Microsoft’s smartphone operating system.
AT&T will also presend an about $80 wireless charger to users who buy Lumia 920. Greengart said, “This is a valuable accessory that AT&T and Nokia donated free of charge to the user. This will cause HTC greater difficulties, its product has smaller display and less features.
The above AT&T announced price is the price for a two-year contract. AT&T will start selling these three phones on November 9, and accept reservations on Wednesday.
Verizon Wireless said last week that the company will sell Nokia Lumia 822 at a price of $99.99, including a $50 discount.
