Good news if you’re looking to pick up the Nokia Lumia 920 on AT&T as that phone is back in stock on Amazon Wireless, fetching for the low price of just $39 with a new two year contract (upgrades are $69 and $449 no contract).

What’s more they actually have it in glossy red in addition to glossy white and the matte black (cyan and yellow though are no where to be found).

Good news for anyone who's looking to pick up the HTC 8X on AT&T. Amazon Wireless has the Windows Phone 8 handset listed for just a single penny, that's just $0.01 when taken out with an eligible contract. Consumers will have to either extend their contract or add a new line to their AT&T account to be able to purchase the HTC 8X, but it's a superb deal with the festive holidays soon approaching.

If you're looking to pick up the AT&T Nokia Lumia 920, Amazon Wireless just became a little more attractive. The online retailer, who is normally quite competitive in pricing, began selling the device just last week for $99. While that's a nice price-match for AT&T, there was little incentive to order from Amazon over the carrier.

The Nokia Lumia 920 Windows Phone has surfaced over at Amazon Wireless. All five colors are available and the cost? The Lumia 920 on a new accounts or eligible upgrades will cost you $99.99. The out of contract price is $499.99.

Black and White models of the Lumia 920 are listed as shipping within 24 hours. The Cyan, Yellow and Red models are listed with estimated shipping in one to two weeks.

You can find the Amazon Wireless Lumia 920 listings here and we've got a discussion on the Amazon Wireless listings going on here in the WPCentral forums.

Thanks, Bugrahan, for the tip!

Amazon Wireless is offering AT&T's Samsung Focus 2 (here's our review) for only a penny.  The one cent cost covers both new accounts and upgrades for individual accounts after contractual and Amazon Wireless discounts.  The off-contract pricing is $399.99.  Whichever option you chose, free two day shipping is included.

The downside to the offer is that the Focus 2 is on backorder but expected to ship within 8 to 9 days.


Just to recap, the Samsung Focus 2 is a compact, base line WIndows Phone that sports a 4" Super AMOLED screen, 5mp rear camera, VGA front facing camera, 8 gigabytes of storage, is 4G LTE compatible, and has a glossy white finish.  You can find all the details here at Amazon Wireless.

Amazon Wireless has some pretty enticing deals, much like Amazon itself, but the online retailer is now offering the black AT&T Lumia 900 4G Windows Phone for just $9.99 when upgrading, or $39.99 when adding a new line. The Nokia smartphone, which boasts a 5-star rating on Amazon Wireless from 342 customers, is the culprit behind the delays that have occurred in Europe due to high demand in the states.

Powered by a 1.4 single-core chip, and featuring 16GB storage, an 8MP rear-shooter (with FF), 4.3" AMOLED display with ClearBlack technology, and 512MB RAM, the Lumia 900 is definitely no slouch. Will you be picking yours up?

For those of you waiting to get the glossy-white Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T on Amazon Wireless, especially for that low price of $49.99 on a new contract ($19.99 if you're upgrading), then you'll be happy to see it's now listed on their site.

Of course that's the good news, the bad news is the phone is already listed as backordered. We're not sure if that's due it being just listed and stock hasn't arrived or it has really sold that fast, so you may want to start pressing F5 a few times to see it updates.

The glossy-white Lumia 900 (which we've lovingly dubbed 'the Stormtrooper') has quickly become the favorite choice for many out there only rivaled by the Cyan color for being so recognizable. Perhaps put some money aside and gift one to a family?

Check our unboxing video to check out this hot Windows Phone.

We reported yesterday that AT&T had listed both the black and cyan Lumia 900's as backordered on their site and it was increasingly harder to find them in the stores (though we have heard that certain stores still have stock). However, we were a bit cautious to suggest that it was because the Lumias were selling out due to popularity. After all there was a good chance stock was being pulled to be re-flashed with the new firmware to fix those data-connection issues.

While we're still not prepared to call the Lumia 900 a best-seller without firm numbers, there is seemingly more good news. On Amazon Wireless, the matte-black Lumia 900 has been holding the #1 spot under "AT&T phones with contracts" for one week now with the cyan variant close behind at number two. Just as impressive, the matte-black Lumia 900 has the #1 spot across all carriers. Yowza.

What's more, the cyan version is now listed as back-ordered although the matte-black is listed as still available.

That tells us a couple of things: the backorder business probably really is due to stock shortage and not just phones being pulled for re-flashing of firmware, otherwise we'd expect the matte black variant to also become back-ordered. The second is that the cyan version most likely has less stock available as compared to the matte-black. The cyan version has constantly trailed matte-black in the number two spot (and lower) over the last few days but it's the one listed as backordered.

That's probably not too surprising as the color choices of the Lumias have always caused delays (and last we heard the glossy-white Lumia 900 was an in-store purchase only, it will be curious to see if that holds next Sunday when it is released).

Either way, it at least looks good that the Lumia 900 has been number #1 and #2 on Amazon Wireless for one week. Those stats are updated hourly, not daily, which means it's a fairly good indicator of popularity. Backorder status, while frustrating, only adds to that perception (though for all we know, Nokia only had limited stock anyway).

With both phones holding 5 out of 5 stars from 250 reviews, user-satisfaction seems extraordinarily high as there's not a single device in the top ten that has those stats. Even the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket (4G LTE version) is sitting at #7 (black) and #23 (white) which is fascinating for such a popular line of Android phones.

Sadly, the much-overlooked HTC Titan II, a phone which we love here at WPCentral, is sitting at a lowly #26. An obvious casualty of the Nokia-AT&T media saturation of the Lumia 900.

It was only a matter of time before we began to see the new HTC Titan II show up at third party retailers for a discounted price. is offering the new Windows Phone for $149.99 after contractual discounts.

The 4G LTE Titan II will still run you $549.99 off contract but if you're interested in saving $50, it might be worth checking out Walmart's listing.

Oh and on a side note, AmazonWireless is listing the HTC Titan II but is showing the Windows Phone as "out of stock" and due in soon. I wonder if AmazonWireless will have the Titan II for a penny?

Thanks, Janis, for the tip!

Although it's probably too early to tell how the AT&T Lumia 900 is doing (and the brunt of its popularity will undoubtedly come months from now), it's worthy to note that on Amazon Wireless, if you sort by best-sellers you get some interesting results.

For instance, by sorting under AT&T best-sellers, we can see the Lumia 900 (Black) is currently in the number #1 spot with the Cyan version holding on to number #3 (the venerable and popular Galaxy SII is in #2). That's not too bad a showing considering we're just talking about pre-orders for the phone and it has yet to get into anyone's hands, let alone reviews for the device.

Sorting without a carrier also yields some positive news with the Lumia 900 Black sitting at #6 and the Lumia 900 Cyan at #8 across all smartphones. The current number #1 position is held by the ridiculously named 'Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX 4G' which goes to show there's no lacking of bad and kitsch taste in the smartphone world.

What is perhaps most interesting, besides those solid rankings for a pre-order phone, is the fact that the Black Lumia is selling more than the Cyan. From general feedback and conversations with AT&T and Nokia, the Cyan version seemed to be the most anticipated. In fact, we're told that advertising would use the Cyan version of Nokia's phone over the Black to its more striking visual appeal.

Finally, while these pre-orders numbers are good news and it certainly reflects the buzz around the Lumia 900, as we mentioned earlier, the real test and interest will be weeks from now after the advertising blitz has kicked in, awareness goes up and the popular culture catches on. That's when we'll see whether Nokia and AT&Ts efforts have finally paid off.

Amazon Wireless began pre-orders on March 30th and were even offering it for a penny on a new contract.

You can add Amazon Wireless to the list of third party retailers offering the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 up for pre-order. While Wal-Mart is offering the new Windows Phone for $49.99, Amazon Wireless has it for a penny (new contracts).

The off-contract price is at $499.99 and upgrade price is at $119.99.  All of which is a little surprising in that Amazon often has a slightly better deal than AT&T's retail stores.  Not always but more times than not.

You do get free two day shipping from Amazon Wireless but there's no indication whether or not you'll receive the new Windows Phone on April 6th.  Amazon Wireless is offering both the cyan and black models of the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 and this may be an option to consider should if you have an Amazon Gift Card that's collecting dust, we start to see supply issues or if you just feel like charging a penny to one of your major credit cards.

You can find Amazon Wireless's listing for the black Lumia 900 here and the cyan version over here.

Amazon is now offering the Lumia 800 bundle that features not only the Windows Phone, but the Purity HD Headset by Monster, a Nokia Play 360 portable speaker, and a Nokia Luna Bluetooth headset (our review). Microsoft recently announced the bundle on the official store.

The bundle, which will set the buyer back by $899, is available in both black and magenta. The Lumia 800 included is unlocked and works on GSM 850/900/1800/1900 and HSPA 850/1900/2100 networks. While the price tag may put off some potential purchasers, the bundle does come packed with the right kit for those who are on the move and enjoy staying connected to both contacts and music.

Should you be interested in ordering the bundle from Amazon, be quick about it as there are only a few left in stock (re-stock for both colours on the way).

Two weeks ago we reported how Windows Phone had beaten out Android devices as the top-rated phones on Amazon Wireless. Flash forward today, after the holiday hubbub has died down and we're excited to see Windows Phones are still in the top with the HTC Titan holding steady with an average of 4.7 (out of 5) from 73 reviews.

That's pretty much consensus folks--people really like that phone. Not surprisingly, the other biggy is the Samsung Focus S which has a slightly higher score of 4.8 (out of 5) but only out of 50 reviews--still, that's a very high-rate of satisfaction.

Rounding out the top three is the Verizon HTC Trophy with a whopping 4.9 (out of 5) from 56 reviews--are you listening, Verizon? People really like that phone.  In addition, on Verizon's site, the Trophy sits with 4.5 stars out of 800 reviews, most gushing with praise and even Best Buy has it with 5 (out of 5) from 15 reviews.

We should also mention that the Radar 4G on T-Mobile was their 2nd highest rated phone (it's now dropped to #4 but still has 4.8 (out of 5) from 106 reviews).

Windows Phone may not have the sales...yet. But we have solid phones with a lot of happy customers and that's a good thing.

The smooth Samsung Focus S (our review) has found itself joining the giant HTC Titan (our review) with being backordered on Amazon Wireless. Both handsets have proved to be popular along with the Nokia Lumia 800, and this news follows what happened on AT&T not so long ago. The Titan is shipping in 8 or 9 days, whereas the Focus S is 1 to 2 weeks, bad news for those who wished to definitely receive one before Christmas from Amazon. This should be of no surprise with the prices being $99.99 and $19.99 respectively.

It looks like the HTC Titan isn't the only AT&T Windows Phone on back order these days. We've received numerous tips in the last thirty minutes from readers who have received emails this afternoon from AT&T with news on their Samsung Focus S order.

Unfortunately the emails weren't shipping confirmations but rather notifications that the Samsung Focus S they ordered is on back order. So far there hasn't been any indication when the Focus S will be back in stock.  Oddly, if you check out AT&T website, the Focus S appears to still be in stock.  

The news comes with mixed blessings.  Nice to see the new Windows Phones flying off the shelves and bad that AT&T wasn't better prepared.  Looking over at Amazon Wireless, they are showing the Focus S as shipping in 1 to 2 weeks. Hopefully, that's a good measure of time and everyone getting the back order emails won't have to wait for long.

Thanks for everyone who tipped us on this and thanks goes out to ninja1043 for the pic!

We reported earlier yesterday about Amazon Wireless's $0.01 sale going on which had no less than seven Windows Phones on sale for a penny. One phone notably absent was the recently released AT&T HTC Titan. We're happy now to report that phone too is now available for this super deal. In fact, we've had at least two readers confirm their orders at this price, which is pretty astonishing. If you're just renewing, you're super low price is still a nice $79.99 for upgrades.

The bad news? It's backordered "8 to 9 days" meaning you'll have to wait what may seem like a very long time for such an amazing phone. And that's assuming the backorder doesn't go back further. Obviously HTC is having tight supply issues with the Titan but hopefully they can pick up the production pace. And at this price, we hope they sell a lot.

Remember the previous Amazon Wireless penny sale last year? Well, we're having another, and a number of Windows Phones are included from AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. Amazon is also throwing in a $100 gift card* with each purchase. The handsets that are included are:

Be sure to check out this deal soon should you be interested as the closing date is November 28th.

* Note, you must activate the hot-spot feature/Wifi tethering at time of purchase to get the $100 gift card

For those looking for a sweet deal, you may want to to take a look at Amazon Wireless. They're running their special sale again where upon purchase of certain phones, you can get a $50 Gift Card, good towards accessories or anything else.

Seeing as the Verizon HTC Trophy (review) is going for $0.01 (2 year new contract), if you throw in this gift card, you're actually making $50 which ain't half bad. Don't forget, you can also unofficially throw on the final version of Mango on this phone right now, making this a killer combo. Head here to Amazon Wireless for more info.
