It looks like AT&T is finally put the nearly year old Lumia 920 from Nokia on heavy discount as the phone has now dropped to just $0.99 on contract ($439 without). It was back at the end of August when the phone dropped from $99 to $49 in preparation for the launch of the $99 Lumia 925.
Can we read anything into this? Probably not. As we mentioned, the Lumia 920 launched on AT&T on November 9th, 2012, nearly one year ago. In addition, around its one-year anniversary date we’re expecting AT&T to launch their Lumia 1520 phablet device, perhaps finally putting the Lumia 920 out to pasture. AT&T’s lineup would then be the Lumia 520, 925, 1020 and 1520 (with the Lumia 620 on its subsidiary, AIO wireless). That’s a fairly nice but subtle refresh by AT&T, no?
Since early on, savvy shoppers have picked up the Lumia 920 for 99 cents or even free through various third party retailers, but this price point for AT&T proper is new. After all, most people still buy their phones by walking into the carrier, not via Amazon.
Accounting for 13% of Windows Phones in the US, the Lumia 920 is the third most popular device in the States. It has also held up surprisingly well despite being 11 months old. Its wireless tech is top notch, the polycarb colors continue to look great and the PureView camera is still top in its class. That’s a rare thing to say about a smartphone and when the AT&T version finally gets Amber (and Bittersweet shimmer), the phone will still be a contender going into 2014.
In fact, the Lumia 920 may go down as the one of the greatest Windows Phones to date in terms of market share, longevity and uniqueness. Agree or disagree?
