It looks like the price points of the more capable handsets currently available in the smartphone market today are starting to drop. We first saw the HTC One X gets its price slashed followed by the Samsung Galaxy S III. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus also got discounted and now, it is the turn of the Nokia Lumia 900 4G to become a whole lot more affordable.
The Nokia Lumia 900 4G is the current Nokia flagship handset in US shores and was released by AT&T last April. If you’ll remember, the handset was released on Easter Sunday and despite this, it still went on to claim the first and third spots in the bestsellers list of an AT&T-authorized retailer – a testament to the capabilities of the handset. In fact, most of the Windows fanboys in our side of the world agree that the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is the best handset to utilize if you want to get the best Windows Phone experience there is.
If you’ve been thinking of giving the Windows Phone ecosystem a try, now is the best time to do it because the Nokia Lumia 900 4G has become more affordable than ever. As it stands, AT&T has already given the green light to give the handset a price drop. With this, the Nokia Lumia 900 4G can now be had at select AT&T resellers for a low, low price of just $19.99. Of course, you will be required to sign a new two-year service agreement with the carrier if you want to take advantage of the Nokia Lumia 900 4G at its listed price.
When you come to think of it, your $20 nowadays will only get you a midrange handset but with this recent price drop, you get to bring home the Nokia Lumia 900 4G and enjoy the components and capabilities that it brings to the table. Not only that, the handset will also let you enjoy all the benefits that the LTE network of AT&T offers.

As for the Nokia Lumia 900 4G, the circuitry of the handset revolves around the QualComm APQ8055 SnapDragon chipset in its internals. On the other hand, the smartphone relies on the combination of its Scorpion processor running at 1.4 GHz and 512 MB of RAM to deliver the computing muscle it requires for a snappy and lag-free operation. The onboard storage of the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is pegged at 16GB but there is no option to have this expanded so you might want to be a little more careful in the multimedia files that get saved in the internal memory of the handset. Display-wise, the handset packs a 4.3-inch ClearBlack-powered AMOLED panel with a 480 x 800 resolution while its camera department features a rear-facing 8MP shooter and a front-facing 1.3MP webcam, both of which are capable of recording 720p and VGA clips respectively. You can buy the Nokia Lumia 900 starting at $19 at select retailers.
