Lumia 900 release mystery, may be soon

Last month we told you about the possible competitive pricing that could be seen with the Nokia Lumia 900 launch on AT&T. The handset is set to be an exclusive device for the carrier and there is now some Lumia 900 release mystery, and it may be arriving soon.

What seems as a strange move Microsoft has taken the Lumia 900 preorder offer down from its various retail stores located around the US. For some strange reason customers can no longer preorder the device for AT&T’s 4G LTE network, and according to GottaBe Mobile both Nokia and Microsoft has given no reason for the move.

This comes just a few days after it was announced that the Nokia Lumia 800 in the US via AT&T was only going to be available via an $899 bundle. This strange move also gets you the Nokia Play 360 speaker, Purity HD stereo headset, and a Bluetooth headset. But the smartphone on its own can be had for only $510 over at Amazon.

The Lumia 900 is believed to be releasing on March 18th for only $99 and it may have been pulled so Nokia can officially announce its pricing and release details for the device. Sources are claiming that this could be happening anytime now, so may mean it could be coming sooner than first thought.

Many have been impressed with what they have seen of the Lumia 900 and just to recap it features a 4.3 AMOLED ClearBlack display with a single core 1GHz processor. Battery life shouldn’t be a problem as it comes packing an 1830 mAh unit with an eight megapixel camera that features Carl Zeiss technology.

Meanwhile it seems Nokia is putting all its eggs into one basket as it is being reported that the company has no plan B if its move to Windows Phone fails to change its fortunes. According to SlashGear VP Victor Saeijes says the only way forward for the company is with the Windows platform.

The Nokia executive admitted that “it’s like starting all over again” and that it must be successful in the US. The company has announced that it has sold more than one million Lumia handsets so far by the end of last month. Have you preordered the Nokia Lumia 900?
