Nokia slashes price of Lumia 900 Nokia has slashed the price of their flagship device, the Lumia 900, in half for the U.S. market.
The popular Windows Phone device has only been on the market for three months and came to market already discounted at $99.

As of today, the Lumia 900 will sell for just $49 with contract from AT&T.

"This move is a normal strategy that is put in place during the lifecycle of most phones," Nokia spokesman Doug Dawson told the WSJ. "It allows a broader consumer base to buy this flagship device at a more accessible price."

AT&T recently announced that the phone would be receiving firmware update 7.5 and a new colorway, pink.

How about at least being truthful, i think he meant "The normal life-cycle of a phone isn't selling well." Anyone see 1Phones get cut to $99.00 after three months, or other popular phones that are selling well get such a price cut? I think Nokia got suckered when they partnered with M1cros0ft.

I guess they think people have a ton of money they can change their phone every other week.When the one I have stops working then I'll get another one.
