Nokia’s Lumia 900 will officially hit AT&T on April 8 for a mere $99

If you are one of the many users who has been waiting for a true high-end Windows Phone device, your wait will soon be over. AT&T has just announced that the highly anticipated Lumia 900 Windows Phone from Nokia will be released on April 8th, with the incredibly cheap price of $99 on contract.

Windows Phone 7 will be the main selling point for the Lumia 900, but by no means does that mean the device’s hardware is subpar. Although single-core, the Lumia’s processor is clocked at 1.4GHz and paired with 512MB of RAM, so the OS should still run smoothly. Only small by phoneblet standards, the 4.3-inch 800 x 480 ClearBlack AMOLED panel should display Windows Phone 7 with the dark blacks and vibrant colors so often praised in Samsung’s displays. As one of the first devices to take advantage of AT&T’s LTE network, the Lumia 900 should also boast impressive download speeds, and the 1830mAh battery should keep users from running out of juice too early in the day.

Even though the hardware is certainly not cutting edge, the Lumia 900 is still one of the better equipped Windows Phones out there, and the price is right as well. It faces stiff competition from the iPhone 4 and other Android devices priced at the same $99, but getting both Nokia’s stellar design with perfectly suitable specs and running Windows Phone 7 for that price seems like a great deal to me, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see dedicated fans forming lines at the AT&T store come the 8th.
