Nokia recently launched two new Windows Phone 8 devices – Lumia 920 and Lumia 820. Both the device are marvelous, and Lumia 920 is an exclusive model sold only by AT&T. Both the devices are up for sale from AT&T and the prices for Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 are $99.99 and $49.99 respectively (on 2 years of contract)
Yes, the prices are very reasonable and I cannot stress that more. Lumia 920 is awesome, and the Lumia 820 is equally good, and at $49.99, it’s too good to resist. I suspect that the 820 will be given for free on signing up a contract in a few months of time, but now it seems like you don’t have to wait for long before you can have Lumia 820 for free because CompUSA is running an offer where in which they are giving out the device in question for free.
According to the campaign being run by CompUSA, they will offer a ‘free’ Nokia Lumia 820 with the purchase of any Windows 8 PC or laptop. Windows 8 is a evolutionary version of windows and comes with an interface that resembles the tile interface on Windows Phone 8. Windows 8 is said to be tailored for touch screen computers, but will work fine on a good old desktop, but if you’re out to get a new Windows 8 PC, perhaps a touch screen one, you are entitled for a free Lumia 820 which boots Windows Phone 8.
The offer is really great, but unless you’re really planning to buy a new Windows 8 PC, the deal may not impress you. First of all, the Nokia Lumia 820 is available for just $49.99 from AT&T on a 2 years contract. CompUSA is giving the device for free, however, you are still required to sign a two year contract with AT&T. If you don’t want to be tied up for a couple of years, you can always choose to purchase the device off contract for $379.99.
Nokia Lumia 820 is a mid-range Windows Phone 8 device. It is placed a notch below the flagship Nokia Lumia 920. The device is colorful and the unibody construction makes it stand out of the crowd. The handset comes with 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot in order to expand the available storage. On the processor side, Lumia 820 uses the same dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor that is used on Lumia 920. Clocked @ 1.5GHz, it is paired with 1GB of RAM to ensure smooth functioning of tasks. The 820 makes use of a 4.3 inch display with ClearBlack technology. The resolution of the screen is 480 by 800 pixels, which isn’t exactly outstanding, but is good for a mid-ranger that it is. In addition, the screen features Super Sensitive touch technology which makes it possible for a user to operate the device even while wearing gloves, a good feature for the winters.
