Lumia 900 appears to be delayed at AT&T
Reports suggest it won't show up at carrier until April
Published: 12 March, 2012
Anyone expecting the Lumia 900 at AT&T this month may be disappointed as BGR is reporting that the handset has been delayed until April. Originally it was expected that the device would arrive on March 18 but if the latest whispers are true then this has been pushed back to April 22. The reason for the delay has been cited as the fact it has yet to receive technical acceptance. Though it means more of a wait for anyone eager to get their hands on the handset it at least avoids launching it in the same week as the new iPad.
There's been talk recently of two Windows Phones which are in the works for AT&T, the AC/DC and the Prodigy, though it's easy forget the carrier has yet to release Nokia's current flagship handset. Key features of the Lumia 900 include a 4.3 display, 1.4GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. In addition to this there's 16GB of internal memory for storage as well as an 8mp camera on the rear and a front-facing 1.3mp camera for video calling.
While AT&T has yet to confirm any of the release dates itself it has offered an official word on how much the phone will cost and is going to be selling it for an impressively low $99.99 on a two-year contract. If the April 22 date turns out to be true it means the US still has two months less than the UK to wait for the device where it's expected to be released in June.
However there's a chance the carrier could be pipped to the post by Rogers in Canada which announced via twitter that it plans to put the Lumia 900 up for pre-order this week. This wouldn't be the first time a high-end device was released north of the border first and Canada recently got the Samsung Galaxy Note several days before the US.
