Nokia’s Lumia 900 will hit AT&T’s store shelves on April 8th for just $99.99 with contract. The handset will be one of the most affordable flagship devices AT&T has ever sold. AT&T is launching several other enticing devices on the same day, including the HTC Titan II Windows Phone, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, and the Sony Xperia ion.
A new high-gloss white version will also be available beginning April 22. The device will have a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz processor, 512MB of RAM, an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera lens, and a high capacity 1830 mAh battery. It will ship with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 operating system and will be compatible with AT&T’s LTE network.
Nokia paid AT&T $25 million in order to make the Lumia 900 a “Company Use” phone, meaning sales employees would be able to take one home for free if they handed back any existing CU handsets, like the iPhone or various Android phones. Sales reps on the front line activity promoting the Lumia 900 over other AT&T handsets should also go a long way to helping get the sales that Nokia and Microsoft need.
