AT&T bolsters Lumia 900 on its homepage

While Nokia and Microsoft have been going all out promoting various handsets from the Lumia line all around the word, we haven’t seen too much from AT&T, so it is great to see that AT&T has given some promotional space to the Nokia Lumia 900 on its homepage...

Well, Nokia is still a popular name, especially with the folks wanting a 'normal' phone. Should be a good starter smartphone for the older folks.

You truely have not used windows phone if you think this is a starter smart phone.

I believe the comment was looking more at the user friendliness of Windows Phone compared to platforms like Android. In that respect, it is an excellent starter smartphone.

@CK - yes it was...
@xtroid2k - so, having a CINGULAR 8125 and a TILT I do not count, right?

On the point of whether or not your previous devices count, let me just say that I used to have Windows Mobile 6.x devices. I now have a Windows Phone 7 device. There is a world of difference between the two; WP7 is a new OS from the ground up.
That being said, WP7 is indeed a good smartphone for starters because of its simplicity and ease of use. Obviously it does much more than that, but that is the only point you were making.

To expand on my thoughts.I agree that this is a great starter smartphone because of the UI however the power is there and must not be under estimated.
Comparing Windows Mobile to Windows Phone is not even worth argueing as Windows Mobile was a great OS if you new how to use it. I had a great experinece with my xv6800 from verizon. However Windows Phone is a whole different OS and is much better.!

Wp7 is fit for everyone at every level. It is the easiest OS to use guaranteed! There is no need to meddle with options you don't know or understand or in fact unnecessary. Simplicity is the beauty of it. More beautiful is the implementation of live tiles and built in social media.

If I were to get a windows phone again, it would have to be from Nokia. The Samsung focus had too many problems. A Nokia windows phone with nokias new pureview camera would be a dream come true

And they STILL can't get the "Windows Phone" name right. They write "Windows phone" with a small "p", which is a confusing term for consumers.
"I don't want Windows [the desktop version] in my phone!?"
ARE THESE CARRIERS EVEN IN THE PHONE GAME OR WHAT? I get so sick and tired of seeing that same spelling mistake, get your s**t together ffs. Show some class, you hobos.

Went to my local AT&T store today and they had a Lumina 900 that they let me check out. I've been excited about taking a look at the phone and giving it a try. In spite of what we've heard about the AT&T store reps being trained, the guy I talked to (who has been there a long time) didn't have a clue about how the phone worked. I played with it a while but, sadly, came away a bit disappointed and I'm not even sure why. I had at first thought I might buy the phone when it goes on sale on Sunday, but I don't think I will be interested in it. Guess I'll keep on looking for the next "greatest" phone.
