The Nokia Lumia 900 officially became available yesterday and some of the early returns look promising.
The folks over at Laptop Mag noticed that the flagship Windows Phone climbed to the top of Amazon’s sales list, ahead of some high-end Android devices. No doubt, the price has to help as you can get the Lumia 900 from Amazon for a cool $49.99 on a new, two-year contract. That is quite a good deal.
That discounted price makes it very attractive but Amazon was also one of the places you could actually buy the Lumia 900 yesterday. In its infinite wisdom, AT&T decided to launch this hero phone on Easter Sunday and a lot of stores weren’t even open. Face, meet palm.
We’ve also seen some scattered reports about mobile data issues with the Lumia 900. In particular, some are saying it’s difficult to get data back when you’ve put it in airplane mode, powered it down or restarted. We had some minor issues with this as well but Nokia told us it was due to the provided microSIM they gave us. We swapped it out for another and had no issues with the 4G LTE connections.
