Confusion surrounds Nokia Lumia 900 UK release

By Posted 25 Jan 2012, 16:59

Earlier this week we brought you news that Nokia’s Lumia 900 was headed to the UK sometime in June after Carphone Warehouse listed the handset on its website. Now it seems the mobile retailer has since pulled the page from their website creating confusion over whether we will be seeing the device in June at all.

The Nokia Lumia 900 was officially unveiled at CES 2012 before its exclusive launch in the US where it is believed AT&T is the only carrier to offer the device so far. News that the smartphone would be making an appearance in the UK was quickly followed although nothing official from Nokia was ever announced. While the news was welcomed by many it appears now it is false or at least premature after today’s news.

A spokesperson for Nokia told T3 that they had ‘no knowledge’ of plans to for a UK release of the Nokia Lumia 900, which for now remains a US exclusive despite growing interest from British consumers. Carphone Warehouse should feel a little guilty for whetting the appetite of some of their customers who seem eager to snap up the 4G LTE smartphone, unless they actually intend to offer it at some point.

Here is a reminder of some of the other features the UK consumers look set to miss out on with the Nokia Lumia 900. It will of course be running Windows Phone OS and is packing a 1.4GHz processor, a front-facing camera, a rear-facing 8 megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities and a 4.3” ClearBlack AMOLED display. Unfortunately we will have to wait and see what happens in the near future before we will know if this impressive smartphone will be heading to the UK at, in the meantime we shall just have to make do with the Nokia Lumia 800.

Would you like to see the Nokia Lumia 900 heading to the UK?

    This is crap man. Just release the goddamn phone and I bet there will be people lining up for it either in the UK or anywhere else in the world. Why all this US or AT&T exclusivity or 3G or 4G nonsense? If this is marketing tatics, then the fellow who came out with it should be fired especially after the “burning platform” memo was circulated in Nokia! Is Nokia trying to pull an Apple on consumers with all the waiting game and all the wet blanket? Apple can do it because they have a strong consumer base. But for Nokia WP or Microkia, they have yet to garner such support base so get real and do a global release like most Android phones.
