Nokia Lumia 900 hits AT&T on March 18 for $99.99
So here's a date for the WP fans in the US to look forward to and a new savings target. According to the latest bit of online rumors, the Nokia Lumia 900 will hit the AT&T shelves on March 18 (as previously reported) and will cost $99.99.
The information was provided by Boy genius report, who claims to have received it from a well informed source, close to the carrier. The $99.99 price tag on a two-year contract does look cheap so if it's true, Nokia will obviously market the Lumia 900 quite aggressively.
For that kind of cash you'll be getting 4.3 inches of non-PenTile AMOLED goodness of the WVGA variety and a 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU, which is about as fast as it gets on the Microsoft platform. Given that WP is still in no position to challenge the big guys just yet, pricing the Nokia flagship lower than the Android and iOS top-dogs seems like a reasonable move on the AT&T side.
You should keep in mind though that the March 18 release date is subject to the phone passing technical acceptance in time. We are keeping our fingers crossed that Nokia and AT&T will finish with the i-dotting and t-crossing and there won't be any delays.
