Best Buy halts Lumia 920 pre-orders

We reported yesterday Best Buy had begun taking pre-orders for the new Windows Phones 8 devices. They were offering both the Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X with 2 year contracts on AT&T. However something must have happened, because the Nokia Lumia 920 has gone missing. Indeed, if you check out the same listings page from yesterday, you'll see there's no mention of the phone.

Why is this happening? We honestly don't know. It could be that the phone has actually sold out but it's rather improbable all four color variants would have sold out within a day. It could have been some error on Best Buy's part in launching this sale early, and now they've pulled it. Or it could just be a temporary error and the listinggs might come back later on.

What makes everything more interesting is the fact that the HTC 8X is still listed and customers can still pre-order it for $99.99.

Did you already order your Lumia 920? How did the process go? Or are you now waiting for the offer to come back? Let us know in the comments below.

It sounds better for news headlines that BB pulled the items!! Using the direct link adds no sudden emergency to get one...

You can use the direct link, but the direct link says both cyan and red are "sold out online".

Buy from Amazon or any other online retailer which do not tax you.

Technically you're supposed to declare those purchases on your taxes and pay what's a called a use tax. But it's really hard to enforce and nobody ever does it anyways.

To add to what was already said, technically you're supposed to declare, and Amazon actually does charge tax if you live in a state where they have a physical presence.

You're wrong. Amazon has tax agreements with many EU countries, and actually add tax and import duties before you even pay the bill.

Plus they generally don't ship electronics outside the US due to warranties and power requirements.
