AT&T today announced plans to exclusively carry Nokia's upcoming Lumia 900 smartphone starting on April 8, 2012 (exactly two weeks from today). The Lumia 900 is one of the first two 4G LTE Windows Phones in the world, and it will sell for just $100 with a two-year service agreement and qualifying data plan.
"AT&T and Nokia’s relationship spans many years and we’re thrilled to introduce their first 4G LTE Windows Phone only for our customers," said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T Mobility. "The Lumia 900 is impeccably designed with clean lines and a camera that rivals stand-alone digital cameras on the market today. Combine that with the people-first Windows Phone experience and our 4G networks – the nations’ largest – and it’s clear that this is one of the best phones customers can find."
The Lumia 900 has a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1.4GHz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 8MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, a front-facing camera, and an 1,830mAh battery (non-removable), along with a 4G LTE radio, of course.
Starting April 8, you'll be able to pick one up in "Cyan Blue" or "Matte Black." A newly announced high-gloss white version will ship on April 22. If you want to get a jump on the non-white versions, you can place your preorders starting March 30 at any AT&T company-owned retail store or online.
