We have a lot of speculation recently about when the Nokia Lumia 900 will be launching in the UK. One thing that is known is that AT&T will have the device exclusively in the US. Now it seems that Nokia has got tough with the AT&T Lumia 900 price and release date.
The company seems to be serious on its assault on the US smartphone market if a report on BGR is to be believed. A trusted source has told the site that the 4G Windows Phone running device will be available for only $100 with a two year AT&T contract.
It is also being claimed that the Nokia Lumia 900 release date in the US will be on March 18th. This release date could alter slightly as the carrier has yet to give the full technical go ahead for the handset. If this price turns out to be accurate it will make it one of the lowest price 4G LTE handsets available.
AT&T is believed to be coughing up at least $200 million into marketing the launch of the Lumia 900, along with other devices on the platform such as the HTC Titan II. Microsoft has a fight on its hands with the Windows Phone platform, as most of the US market is taken up by the Android and iPhone platforms.
But providing a high end smartphone at this low price would certainly tempt many consumers to give Nokia and Windows Phone a try. Would you get the Lumia 900 for only $100?
