The newest addition to AT&T's lineup is here, and it's a brand new color option for Nokia's flagship Windows Phone. The pink Lumia 900 has officially gone on sale from AT&T's website and should be available in retail stores beginning today.
With its polycarbonate construction, the phone is pink through and through with no paint which means it's impervious to a multicolored decay a long time down the line. The rest is the same though: a sharp 4.3" ClearBlack AMOLED screen, an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss lens, a front-facing camera, 4G LTE support for AT&T's network and a beefy 1.4 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor. The phone is confirmed to be receiving its overdue Tango update soon as well as Windows Phone 7.8 further along the road.
As a bonus, the rumors were true and the Nokia Lumia 900 has received a substantial price cut. It's not just pink either -- all color variations of the flagship are now just $49 on contract from AT&T. Nokia explained the move in its latest Conversations blog post, and this mostly seems like a new way to reach the Back-to-School crowd.
It's a great move in our opinion; the phone's high-quality design, LTE connectivity, low price tag and various color options (black, cyan, pink and white) could make it the perfect choice for any recurring backpack-er. We'll see if it improves Nokia's fortunes through the rough upcoming months before Windows Phone 8..
