Promising Nokia Lumia 900 Price on AT&T

Promising Nokia Lumia 900 Price on AT&T

Earlier this month we informed readers about the Nokia Lumia 900, an upcoming Windows Phone smartphone that would be heading to AT&T for the U.S. Further to that we heard rumors of a release date on March 18 and today we have more news that seems to confirm that date and also price news which looks very promising indeed.

The Nokia Lumia 900 looks to be a real step forward for Nokia’s progression in the US market and many were impressed at the sleek, stylish phone all wrapped up in polycarbonate. It’s Nokia’s first Windows Phone OS handset with 4G LTE connectivity and we reckon there will be a lot of interest in it. An AT&T roadmap has now been leaked showing a release date of the Lumia 900 on March 18, the same as we had heard previously.

BGR brings us the news but cautions that as the Lumia 900 hasn’t yet received technical acceptance the launch date could still change. No price had previously been announced but we reckoned that it would be competitively priced to give Nokia and the Windows Phone platform a firm foot in the market with this flagship device. It seems that assumption was correct as the leak shows a price of only $99.99 on the usual two-year contract. That is certainly going to please a huge amount of people who’ve had their eye on the Lumia 900 and have been waiting to hear a price.

We’ll rundown the major specs again, a 1.4GHz processor, 4.3-inch Clearback AMOLED display, 16GB of internal storage with 512MB of RAM and of course that 4G LTE connectivity. There’s also an 8-megapixel rear camera, front-facing camera and a 1,830mAh battery so a pretty decent handset for a more than respectable price. A report on ZDNet also looks at the Lumia 900 and says that Microsoft documentation the site has seen suggests the above price and release date are accurate. Although Windows Phone devices haven’t yet taken off, ZDNet notes that with a price of only $99.99 the Lumia 900 could lure quite a few consumers to the platform for the first time. While we wait for more you may be interested in our look at Sony’s Xperia S vs. the Nokia Lumia 900.
