Newegg’s latest shell shocker deal brings Nokia Lumia 925’s price down to $224.99, which is a whopping 55 percent off the Windows Phone’s list tag. For those of you keeping count, the 4.5 incher used to cost $500 outright.
A month ago, another jaw-dropping Newegg promotion had the Lumia 925 at $280, whereas T-Mobile continues to sell it for a $408 full retail price, with no upfront payment. AT&T also charges $399.99 off-contract, and on Amazon, the cheapest you can find the handheld is $360 or so. Or a measly penny, but in that case penning a two-year Ma Bell pact is mandatory.
Back to Newegg’s outstanding special offer, let’s stress the online retailer has the T-Mo variant on clearance, so don’t even think about using it on a different network. There are no strings attached to the deal whatsoever, no 24-month pledges required, mail-in rebates or catches of any kind.
Just hurry up, because usually, Newegg’s shell shockers last for 24 hours tops. The clock is ticking.
On the fence about the purchase with the Lumia 1020 and 1520 putting 925’s specs to shame? I feel you, but trust me, no other $225 device around, regardless of the on-board OS, can provide you with this bad boy’s stellar hardware: 720p 4.5-inch AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 chip, 1 GB RAM, 2,000 mAh battery and 8 MP rear-facing camera with Carl Zeiss Optics. Go on, buy it, and thank me later.
