Just when will AT&T end up releasing Nokia’s Lumia 900, the first Windows Phone handset to feature high-speed LTE data? Shortly after the phone’s official announcement at CES, a leaked AT&T roadmap suggested that users would finally be able to get their hands on the 900 this month, on March 18. As that date has been getting closer, we saw the Lumia 900 get its FCC certification, clearing the way for its release, and more recently witnessed AT&T putting up a new “Coming Soon” teaser, making us think the 900 was nearly here. Today a new rumor suggests that won’t be the case, after all, and the 900 won’t come to AT&T until next month.
Supposedly, AT&T is moving the phone’s release back from the March 18 we had heard rumored to April 22. It’s not clear exactly what may be responsible for the delay, but one theory has AT&T failing to certify the 900′s software in time for a March release.
The good news is that despite this potential delay, there are reportedly no changes to plans to keep the Lumia 900′s price down to just about $100 on-contract; that’s a fantastic deal for what we fully expect to be an impressive phone.
