Please dont take the price of the 920 serious! There are no information about the pricing yet and the shops must take the phones in to their system and take reference prices.. look at our german shop -> http://bit.ly/SvTrDl   we offer the lumia 920 for 599€ ;) The Prices are just speculations based on the experiences of our Product Managers :)

Love how you respond to more people and not just stick to your post which most don't bother reading. No homo but you rock =) hope we get accurate dates and prices soon tho !

I understand that these prices are just guesses since official pricing hasn't been announced, but why would I pay almost $1000 for a phone? I might as well buy a really good laptop for that price.

€749 (incl VAT) would be about £499 ex VAT (or $799) for an unlocked Lumia 920, does not sound to far off to me. It's the same SIM free UK price as the 32GB iPhone5 so you pay the same for a much better phone.
I somehow think the actual street price will be the same as above but including VAT though.

You people, yu don't get it do you?
To compare european price to US does not make sens. For instance, in the US the iphoen costs 600 or 700 $ ? No? Here in Europe the iphone costs 600 or 700 € ? 
Is all clear now? 

Correct. Most people forget that the € price includes VAT. You have to remove VAT before you convert. Plus everything in Europe is more expensive.

These are most likely preset prices, not the actual amount but only a figure created to give the buyer an idea. Usually the customer is not charged the amount, it only secures the device be sold to them on the day of release. The price is usually adjusted as well. (So I am hoping!) :s

i really hope this is true, it would make the oct 21st launch on ATT more plausable. 
i want that camera!

Hoh.de and cyberport.de are much more reliable sources here in Germany as they are widely known online resellers.
Prices from hoh.de:
820: 449€
920: 599€
Ativ S: 599€

That's why they have contract pricing. Plus art does a deal for early upgrades: $ of contract + 250$ I believe. All depending how soon your contract matures ( at least a yr in I think). So if the 920 is that much you can still get it for around 500$, but though I can afford to I won't pay more than 200$ for any smartphone even if it is WP8 ;-). Hope everyone gets their desired device.
