The highly anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 is now available for pre-order at Microsoft retail stores — all fifteen of them! Microsoft confirmed you can pre-order one of these devices for $25. That’s nice, but there’s still no release date or full price tag. Rumor has it the phone will launch on March 18th for a very aggressive $99 with a two-year contract on AT&T, but there’s no official word just yet.
Once consumers realized Nokia made a winner in the Lumia 800 overseas, an imminent American counterpart only made sense for Nokia to fulfill the requests. The Lumia 900 has a larger 4.3-inch display (the 800′s display spans 3.7 inches) and is the first 4G LTE Windows Phone device. Inside there’s a 1.4GHz single-core processor, but don’t underestimate how fast this handset really is in combination with the OS. An 8MP camera is located on the rear and a 1MP camera is on the front.
IntoMobile’s Marin Perez got a hands-on with the Nokia Lumia 900 at CES 2012 and found it to be quite impressive. It’s a tad large, but Android users should be more than accustomed to phones similar in size to dinner plates. If the phone seems attractive and you by slim chance happen to live near a Microsoft retail store, head on over and reserve one.
