Good news for those of you looking forward to the Nokia Lumia 900. While there have been rumors in the past about the phone getting a late April release, the latest rumors online point towards an earlier release date. According to a post, from someone claiming to be an assistant manager with an AT&T store in California, which surfaced on The Verge – the phone is going to be released on April 8th 2012, the Easter Sunday of this year. Here’s what the poster had to say:
“I’m an assistant manager with an att store in California. We are gearing up for the Nokia lumia launch and were going all out. cant say much more but its tentative for April 8 as far as I understand. I And other sales reps are having mandatory trainings on the Nokia 900 soon and that usually means its launching shortly after. You don’t have to believe me but just giving you a heads up. I think early reports said April 18th so its a little earlier than that. Cant wait! we got the demo in last week and I’ve been very impressed with the phone. Its a sexy b—. As far as colors go we are only getting black and cyan. the white one will come when the phone performs well, like we did with the sky rocket”
A WPCentral reader who claimed to be an AT&T worker also mentioned that the staff are being trained for the Lumia 900 which will supposedly go on sale on April 8th. However with Easter Sunday being a holiday, it seems pretty odd for AT&T to be releasing a phone. But since there’s no way to verify the truth behind the statements (this is the internet after all), we can’t confirm if it’s the correct release date. Let’s just hope the wait for the phone won’t be much longer.
