Nokia Lumia 928 Windows Phone Finally Coming to Verizon on May 16th for $99.99

As Nokia has pushed Windows Phone into the market place there has been one glaring hole in their attempts to get the masses on board, the lack of their flagship Lumia line on the Nations largest carrier Verizon. Starting May 16th that is all about to change as Verizon and Nokia have confirmed that the Lumia 928 will be available for $99.99 on contract starting next week.

Nokia Lumia 610 – A Low-End WP7

Nokia Lumia 610 – A Low-End WP7

Nokia’s top WP7 phone, the Lumia 900, sells for $99 on contract with AT&T. In today’s market, that price is actually really good for a top of the line phone. However, a large portion of Nokia’s sales come from emerging markets where the phones aren’t subsidized by carriers and that $99 phone could cost several hundred dollars. Until now there was not a WP7 phone that would appeal to those markets. The Lumia 610 will sell for EUR 189 in the second quarter of this year.

The  610 runs a newer version of  Windows Phone 7 dubbed Tango, which lowers the minimum specification requirements. It has a 3.5-inch screen, 8GB of internal storage, 5MP camera, and runs on 256MB of memory. Even though the 610 is targeted towards a younger audience it will  help WP7 move towards the low-end market, which Nokia is used to dominating and Microsoft wants to enter.

Nokia Lumia 900 Available in The UK Soon?

Nokia Lumia 900 Available in The UK Soon?

 

Nokia introduced the beauty of a Windows Phone 7 device at CES called the Lumia 900, unfortunately Nokia did not comment on release date or pricing at the time, they also didn’t mention international availability. Well the folks at Carphone Warehouse have a coming soon page on their website that lends some credibility to the idea that Europe will be getting their own version of the Lumia 900 as well. Pocket-lint is pointing out that their sources are saying an announcement could be on the way at MWC next month. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Nokia release the Lumia 900 across multiple carriers and regions, it only makes sense for smart phone makers to release their high-end devices across multiple carriers and regions, while building a few mid range phones for individual areas and carriers. Nokia has gone all in with Windows Phone 7 and it is starting to pay off, and if the rest of their line follows in the trend of the first three Lumia’s we could be in for some great phones from Nokia with a great Mobile OS.

Nokia Lumia 900 WP7 Device Coming to AT&T on March 18th??

Nokia Lumia 900 WP7 Device Coming to AT&T on March 18th??

So you saw Nokias CES announcement of the Lumia 900, and you were upset that no one said when it was coming, well fret no more! Nokia may have let the ever important release date slip out into the public. Paul Thurrott and Mary Jo Foley, reported earlier on Nokias developer newsletter and the fact that it contains a March date for the device. Mary Jo Foley specifically calls out that the device will be available on March 18th.

Granted this could be a typo, rampant speculation, or totally false documents, but for now lets run with it and see what happens shall we?

Nokia Lumia 900 to AT&T

Nokia Lumia 900

It won’t be the first Nokia Lumia phone to come to the US that honor goes to the Lumia 710, but the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T is another step in the right direction for Nokia and Microsoft as they try to do something neither has been able to do alone, gain significant market share in US. The Lumia 900 looks similar to it’s Lumia 800 and N9 brethren. It has a 4.3 inch Clear Black AMOLED display, 1.4GHz single-core processor, 8MP camera with Carl Zeiss optics, front-facing camera, and will run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. The Lumia 900 will be pre-loaded with Nokia Drive, a voice turn-by-turn navigation system, and some other apps that will come first to Nokia devices. They include the ESPN sports hub, CNN app for WP, the Univision app, and over 20 EA games. It will come in cyan or matte black; pricing hasn’t been announced yet and availability will be “in the coming months” – sounds familiar.

Nokia Lumia 710 TMobile

 

Nokia, in this country, is known for free on contract feature-phones but that is about to change. Rumors have Nokia WP7 devices coming to Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. No dates or models have been confirmed but really it is only a matter of time. The first of the three carriers to release a Nokia WP7 device will, most likely, be T-Mobile. Last week, T-Mobile and Nokia sent out an invitation to a press event for December 14th. Then over the weekend, Pocketnow got its hands on a leaked press shot of a white Lumia 710 with T-Mobile’s branding, making it very likely that is what will be announced.

The rumors sounding devices for AT&T and Verizon are less exciting. CNET is reporting that both carriers are testing a Nokia Lumia 800 with LTE. Testing doesn’t always mean the device will be released especially since the current version of WP7, Mango, does not support LTE radios. With both companies aggressively pushing their next generation networks, we may have to wait for an update to WP7 until AT&T and Verizon start carrying Nokia’s latest devices.

There were many emotions and predictions swirling around the announcement of the partnership between Nokia and Microsoft back in February. Now it seems, we are close to seeing first hand how the two giants will affect the mobile landscape here in the US.
