All the signs have been pointing to a March 18th release date for the Lumia 900, the flagship device in Nokia’s Windows Phone Lumia series on its way to AT&T. A placeholder page on the AT&T site still has a secretive coming soon placeholder for some device, long after its new iPad page has gone live, and it received the FCC’s blessing back at the beginning of March.
WPCentral is reporting that Nokia has started seeding the Lumia 900 to its developer channels, giving developers time with the Lumia 900 before the device goes on sale in the U.S. Further, at an upcoming recruitment event in San Diego, Nokia will be giving away a Lumia 900 device every half hour to job fair attendees. Surely the devices release is imminent, right? RIGHT?
A report out of BGR today suggests that this may not be the case, and that the release of the Lumia 900 may in fact have been pushed back into April, and the latter half of April at that. According to unnamed sources, the Lumia 900 will launch on April 22nd for the oft-rumored $99.99 price point.
Though rumors always should be taken with a grain of salt, the fact that AT&T and Nokia have been so quiet about the U.S. release of the Lumia 900 have us thinking the device has in fact been pushed back. We’ll just have to wait for an official announcement from AT&T, which should be coming very soon.
