AT&T plans to sell the Lumia 900—flagship of Nokia’s U.S. Windows Phone lineup—for just $99.99 with a standard two-year contract. This is an astounding deal, especially considering the slew of awards the handset has already collected, including the coveted Best of CES 2012.
The phone hits stores across the country on Sunday, April 8. You can preorder it starting March 30 by visiting any company-owned AT&T store.
Black, cyan and white
The phone, which supports AT&T’s blazing fast 4G LTE network, ships in a beautiful, eye-catching cyan as well as matte black. A new high-gloss white version will also be available beginning April 22. The Lumia 900 boasts a big 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen, 16 gigabytes of storage, and an 8 megapixel camera with an exclusive Carl Zeiss wide-angle lens (f2.2/28mm).The camera also shoots high-res 720p/30fps video. The one megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera is perfect for video chats.
And as if you needed any more reasons to grab it, you’ll also have access to a bunch of Lumia-exclusive apps like Nokia Maps, Drive, and Transport. And the one I can’t wait to get my hands on: Nokia Creative Studio, a slick photo app that arrived in the Windows Phone Marketplace earlier this month.
Titan II also coming April 8
The Nokia Lumia 900 isn’t the only Easter Day surprise from AT&T. The HTC Titan II will also go on sale that day for $199.99 with a two-year contract.
Like its popular predecessor, the HTC Titan II sports a massive 4.7-inch WVGA touchscreen (largest of the Windows Phone devices). It’s also 4G LTE ready. But to me the standout spec is the phone’s whopping 16-megapixel rear camera—the highest megapixel camera on any smartphone at AT&T.
