Since Nokia entered in a strategic partnership with software giant Microsoft last year to develop handsets for the Windows Phone platform, the Finnish smartphone manufacturer has had enormous success and has actually become relevant again in the smartphone market after the likes of Apple, Samsung, HTC and the like kept all the fun to themselves. Looking back, Nokia head honcho Stephen Elop even boasted at Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona that they are very happy with the performance of the Nokia Lumia 710, the company’s comeback device in US shores, with the handset exceeding expectations since hitting the shelves of T-Mobile.

This time around, it looks like Nokia has another hit in its hands with the release of the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 4G. The wireless provider released the current Nokia Windows Phone flagship handset last April 8 and despite the handsets unavailability due to the Easter Bunny, the smartphone still went and instantly shot up to the bestseller’s list of Amazon Wireless taking up the first and third spots. Critcis however are quick to dismiss the seeming success being enjoyed by the Nokia Lumia 900 4G given the fact that AT&T launching of a very important handset on a Sunday, add to that fact that it is a holiday, as something largely unheard of.
Despite that, the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is still as hot as it can get. And to make the handset even more attractive, the online retailer has got an offer for the handset that is really hard to refuse if you happen to be a fanboy of Windows Phone and hard to ignore if you are thinking of jumping ship to the Windows Phone ecosystem. As such, AT&T authorized retailers is currently offering the Nokia Lumia 900 4G for only $49.99 with a new two-year subscription with the wireless provider. When you come to think of it, that is an awesome price for a handset that claimed the first and third spot of the online retailer’s bestsellers list upon getting released. If you are averse to staying with AT&T for the next two years, you can pick up the Nokia Lumia 900 4G at its off-contract price of $499.99.
Below is the specs sheet of the handset to give you an idea why it is so hot so read on.
