Nokia's Windows 8 phone will be cheap

Written by Nick Farrell



With a contract


It is starting to look like Nokia has managed to secure the backing of some of the carriers to offer its new Windows 8 phones at a cheaper price.

AT&T set a $50 starting price for Nokia's latest Windows smartphones. The US mobile provider said on Tuesday that it will sell the Nokia Lumia 820 for $49.99 and the flagship Lumia 920 phone for $99.99 compared with its $199.99 pricing for the HTC  Windows Phone 8X device.

The phones are the key for Microsoft which is banking on its Windows Phone 8 software to push it into the mobile market. Nokia is hoping that the phones will save it from going under. The low Nokia price shows that volumes are more important to the company than profits as it rebuilds its customer base.

With those sorts of prices the only way things could go tits up is if there is something wrong with Windows Phone 8, and we don't think there is. The prices are for customers who sign a two-year contract with AT&T.
