Who said the Lumia 920 off-contract and sim-free is $800?
Right now the only allure to signing a two-year contract minus the price cut is a device with the proper LTE radios for use in the US. If the Nexus 4 that is coming out next Tuesday had LTE in it and still cost under $400 that would be one heck of a deal. LTE on AT&T isn't available everywhere I'm at, but I only have to drive ten minutes from my house to get into decent LTE coverage. If that wasn't the case, I might have considered picking up the Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store and using it.
Right now I'm just impressed with the build quality of my 920 and its black matte finish. I could see the benefit of having bought a more vivid color - yellow certainly comes to mind - but it's just loud. I like the muted appearance of the matte finish and how it just blends in with my workstation at the office. The cyan of my 900 just gave off the vibe to people I had my phone on my desk. Right now people cannot distinguish it from another phone model. (And that is OK)
Once someone sees that gorgeous screen power on and the camera in action I'm sure there will be no mistaking what kind of phone this is. Now, if Nokia releases gel cases like they did with the 900 and you can swap out for a red, yellow, black, etc and go with another accent color I'm game.

Well I'm going try something brave, since Nokia can't SELL it I'll see if I can trade the one I'm about to buy from best buy Commitment free and trade it for a developer one from build 2012 if not I'll use straight talk until I can unlock it and go back to tmobile who's network reform should be live by then... whatever it takes I will have this phone!!!!

Ok, here's an update: called the MS store in pentagon city and they said they had none but came down anyway to check best buy as their system said its available in store, sadly bs. Popped into the MS store and they said they have them! Waiting now to see id this is BS or not.
Edit: SUCCESS!!!! Got it!!!! Say they have all colors but Yellow. Thanks to the guys who mentioned the store, lifesavers! :D

Weird. I walked into the at&t store in Santa Monica when they opened this morning and bought a black 920 off contract. The guy was a little surprised that I was buying it full price but gave me no hassle. Honestly it's a big step up from the 900. Happy hunting.
