AT&T and Nokia recently announced the first LTE Windows Phone device for the US, the Nokia Lumia 900, and now it would appear that we may have some details on pricing and an actual launch date.
The guys from the BGR have received details on AT&T’s latest roadmap, and it would appear that the Lumia 900 will launch with AT&T on the 18th of March, and the handset will be available for $99 when you sign up to a new two year contract with the carrier.
The March launch date ties in with information we previously heard where March was mentioned in a developer newsletter, and the Nokia Lumia 900 comes with Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
The Nokia Lumia 900 shares a similar design to that of the Nokia Lumia 800, the device comes with a 4.3 inch AMOLED ClearBlack touchscreen display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.
Other specifications on the Nokia Lumia 900 include a single core 1.4GHz processor, plus a rear facing 8 megapixel camera with an f2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, the rear camera is capable of recording HD video in 720p, up front we have a 1 megapixel camera with an f2.4 lens and the device comes with 16GB of built in storage, plus 4G LTE and WiFi.
The $99 price that has been suggested could make the Nokia Lumia 900 a very popular device, considering that other manufacturers are releasing their new smartphones with two year contracts at around $199 and $299.
