AT&T could end up spending $150 million to promote Nokia Lumia 900

It isn't every $99.99 phone that gets-or even deserves a $150 million ad budget, but as the current flagship Windows Phone model, the Nokia Lumia 900 has a lot riding on its success; that is why reports say that AT&T could spend as much as $150 million promoting the model...

Rather than spend $150 million to promote the phone, why not just give away 1.5 million of these phones for FREE thus saving the customer $99 per phone! That is some great marketing.
Image a free Nokia Lumia 900 with a 2-year contract.

I like at the end how it says Verizon is Americas largest 3G carrier, and now it is 4G.

But it doesn't have the largest 4G network. What point were you trying to make?

I really do hope that ATT really does kickstart a windows revolution cause it would be good for the industry to have more than just 2main operating systems.

Don't get your hopes up. Walk into an AT&T store and play dumb about smartphones and watch what they try to sell you .I guarantee it wont be a Lumia. Unless you specifically ask and lead yourself over to it. .

Well the reps are supposed to, and they're being offered extra incentives and commission on the Lumia 900, so there's little reason they wouldn't. Besides, WP7 is a good OS, not just for first-time smartphone users, but for any user who either wants a change or wants something that works well and has a lot of manufacturer and software support

I can see this actually working. By early 2013 i bet W8 phones will be seriously catching up to android with maybe 15% U.S. market share and growing. Who else wants to place some bets!

How many is that, relative to other devices? A lot, a little, average?
