A leaked roadmap for AT&T suggests the carrier is planning to launch the Nokia Lumina 900 on March 18 for a bargain price of $99.99 with a two-year contract. Considering this phone is expected to be one of the high-end Windows Phone devices of the year, the budget-friendly price is a little surprising. Still, if this proves to be true, we give Nokia and AT&T credit for offering such a competitive price for what looks to be a great phone.
As you may recall, Nokia's Lumina 900 features a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen, 16GB of onboard storage, a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM, and 4G LTE connectivity. You'll also find an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics in this phone. The phone will run on Windows Phone 7.5.
Will a budget-friendly price and what looks to be a really great Windows Phone give Microsoft and Nokia the boost they need to fully compete in the mobile market? We're anxious to find out!
