Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for the first of AT&T’s Windows Phone 8 handsets. The Nokia Lumia 920 is available in red, yellow, cyan, white, and black for $149.99 on a two-year contract ($599.99 contract free). WPCentral first noticed the product listings.

HTC other high profile Windows 8 device, its Windows Phone 8X, can also be pre-ordered. It’s available in its indigo-blue color for $99.99 on a contract ($599.99 without). Best Buy isn’t yet showing any shipping date for either handset, saying only that they will “ship when available.”

It’s worth noting that if the Lumia 920 is viewed as a competitor to current high-end smart phones—say the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S3—it will come in at a noticeably lower price point. Both of those devices are $199.99 on two-year contracts, but the Lumia 920 can be yours for roughly 25 percent less.
