Well, this is an interesting turn of events. All signs were pointing towards Rogers releasing the Nokia Lumia 900 LTE tomorrow, but I’ve done some digging around their site and those interested can step up and order now. The prices are the exact same as we posted earlier – ranging from $99.99 on a 3-year to $524.99 no-term. The Lumia 900 is described by Rogers as “the ultimate Windows Phone experience. Combining the speed of the Rogers LTE network with the power of a 4.3 AMOLED screen and 1.4GHz processor.”
It currently looks like the Lumia 900 is only available online – we’ve been informed that the 900 has not yet arrived at Rogers stores. Pretty sure the official announcement will still be out tomorrow… Our review will be up shortly, but have a look at our hands-on here.
Update: The press release just went out and the Nokia Lumia 900 is officially available. As listed above, “The Nokia Lumia 900 is available in black exclusively at Rogers Communications on April 9 for $99.99 with select 3-year plans”… perhaps we’ll see a new colour sometime later this year.
Richard White, General Manager for Nokia Canada stated “The launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 in Canada signals our commitment to bringing the best phones into the Canadian market. It is impeccably designed with clean lines and a camera that rivals stand-alone digital cameras on the market today. Combine that with the people-first Windows Phone experience and the Rogers’ LTE network – and it’s clear that this phone delivers an unsurpassed mobile experience.”
