Nokia Lumia 900 to cost just $99 with contract? BGR is reporting today that Nokia's Lumia 900 may come with just a $99 price tag when it launches later this year, becoming a "game changer" for Microsoft and Windows Phone.
Citing a first quarter 2012 roadmap from AT&T sources, the expected launch date for the phone is March 18th, but that is certainly not set in stone.

The phone is still looking to receive technical acceptance in the U.S., which could push the launch date.

At $99 and with a nice spec sheet, especially for a Windows Phone device, the launch could certainly be a game changer for the operating system which has yet to really gain traction, at least not in the U.S.

The Lumia 900 has 4.3-inch AMOLED display, 1.4GHz single-core processor, Nokia's ClearBlack technology, LTE support, an 1830 mAh battery, 512MB RAM, 16GB internal storage and an 8MP Carl Zeiss camera with large aperture (F2.2) and wide angle focal length (28mm). The phone also has a 1MP front facing camera.
