Lumia 900 will be $499.99 on Rogers with a Dark Knight surprise
WPCentral received a picture of Roger’s inventory system revealing the price of the anticipated device. According the photo, it will retail for $499.99. Hopefully signing a 2-year commitment will reduce the consumer’s expense even further. Unfortunately, the release date is not specified in the image, but pre-orders just opened up so, hopefully it will be available really soon.
Speaking of pre-orders, Roger’s website shows an image on the pre-order page announcing a little surprise. It says, “When you pre-order a Lumia 900, Nokia and Rogers have a surprise for you. Hint: there’s a hero rising out the darkness.”
That may seem a little but cryptic, but considering Nokia released a special edition Dark Knight Rises Lumia 800, we’re willing to bet this is another Batman tie in for the release of the Lumia 900.

The award dosent has much value as not many good phones were show cased at CES, all awesome quadcores surfaced at MWC, ALSO BEWARE BEFORE BUYING THIS PHONE,
1. AS WINDOWS 8 APPOLO WILL BE LAUNCHED IN OCT 2012 WITH DIAL CORE SUPPORT AND MANY PC LIKE FEATURES..
2.THIS IS A SINGLE CORE PHONE SO IT MIGHT NOT BE UPGRADABLE TO APPOLO OR WILL NOT BENIFIR PROPERLY FROM IT..
3. ALSO THE PROCESSOR AND RAM ARE SAME AS LUMIA 710 AND SO IS THE OS.. SO IT WONT PERFORM ANY BETTER THAN 710,
4.ONLY ADVANTAGE IS FRONT CAMERA.. SO DECIDE CAREFULLY BEFORE BUYING .. LIKE..?

btw Apollo is going to be fully compatible with it, it's been confirmed.
12. abhishek48 (Posts: 164; Member since: 19 Feb 2012)
but still single core.. no dual core power.. ice cream sandwitch runs on even 600 mhz androids.. ios 5 runs on iphone 3gs too but this dosent mean it will perform well... iphone 3gs does better with ios 4.x than ios 5.. so lg optimus performs better with gingerbread than ics.. so could be the case here.. buying this phone rights now paying more makes no sense it has same internals for lumia 710.. this means NO PERFORMANCE GAIN.. but it only if u want to waste some money right now and regret only after 8 months.. or buy a quad core which will remain good for 2 yrs

I'm pretty sure Nokia's high-end devices will be upgradeable to Apollo without loss of function. They are built in-house with Microsoft, you know. They know what's up. Nokia can not let such a major detail slip, now that they are aiming for gold.
Furthermore, you sound like an idiot when you're ranting on stuff you clearly don't know anything about yet. All you do is guessing, so keep it in your pants ffs.
And, oh - Lumia 900, in comparison to the 710, has better camera optics, better display, better battery, better build quality, a front-facing camera and is also "smaller". So stop simplyfying everything to make it sound legit. You're wrong.
And how can you almost say that Lumia 900 did Not win the award, when it clearly did? IF IT WON THE AWARD, IT HAD EARNED IT. So what does that say about the boring "me too!" competition?

According to this site Nokia will have nothing to do with the Apollo upgrade or any other upgrades. They would leave that up to Microsoft, which will be unlikely. Nokia wants everybody (who is interested in Apollo) to BUY their New device
27. ScottT (Posts: 2; Member since: 12 Mar 2012)
Consumers who currently own Windows Phone 7 devices may not see an upgrade past 7.x, as there's indication that Microsoft won't distribute a Windows Phone 8 upgrade to past, present and future 7.x devices. Additional sources claim that Apollo won't be pushed to existing Windows Phone users. The decision may be based on carriers and/or Microsoft itself. If that is indeed the case, consumers who purchase a Windows Phone 7.x device just before Apollo’s release won't receive any new features save for what apps bring to the table. They'll also be locked out of the unified experienced that Windows 8 promises for multiple devices. Microsoft is forcing Windows Phone 7.x owners to purchase a new Windows Phone 8 device if they want to enjoy the full multi-screen One-OS-To-Rule-Them-All experienced

A kick-ass blaster. Aka, the twistin' triple.

In Canada sign two years contract basically you pay almost the same price without contract most would less $50, only THREE retarted years would reduce the price further
If this phone has more than 512mb of ram and faster CPU i would definitely get it, but not with this spec I wouldnt buy it for this price

i would try it before discounting it… wp7 does not need amazing hardware to fuunction

Thank you finally someone agrees that windows is great
17. sks1969 (Posts: 86; Member since: 04 Mar 2012)
Windows may be great, but windows phone??? I paid for 16 GB of flash, not upgradeable, I have to use "Sky Drive" to copy my photos music, or use the unheard of "Zune" to even copy my photos, songs etc? Not acceptable. I hope they have a mass storage mode? without that this phone is a waste of money. 500 $ is too much. Themeing is changing of live tile colours. I don't like the list interface. I prefer the gird system to scroll through apps. Typical M$... Even outdated symbian is better to be in this closed system. :(

Great, another phone with a single-core processor, less than 720p resolution, and 16gb non-expandable memory. When is Nokia going to learn that they need to make a phone with competitive hardware specs? It's a shame because Mango is supposed to be an amazing OS.

Great, another Android troll with a single minded knowledge about things. Stolen product called laggy Android indeed needs a huge specs to work with its virtual machine.
WP is maded a lot better and works with less hardware. This gives it clear advantage with a battery life etc.
It is true that every single android clone says it can do 1080 resolution pics/vids. Still the results are total crap. Nokia Lumia 900 camera will beat most Android cameras and Nokias Pureview will beat everything.
I agree with you about Mango. It is indeed an amazing OS. Apollo will be mindblowing.
Always remember that iOS / Android represents an old retro UI system which is invented back in 1995+. Microsoft is the one taking steps forward. I bet Androd will try to steal these ideas too.
19. davin8r (Posts: 45; Member since: 28 Apr 2011)
Still doesn't answer the question of why Nokia doesn't make a phone with competitive hardware specs. Even if it may be true that WP performs well without the "need" for competitive hardware, try convincing the average consumer of that.
I *want* WP to succeed, and this just seems like another misstep by Nokia. Maybe it costs too much to make a high-end phone and pay royalties to Microsoft at the same time?
24. Altair (Posts: 335; Member since: 02 Feb 2012)
Thought everyone knows this already. Nokia has nothing to do with hardware limitation. It's all about Microsoft support on different processors. WP 7.5 supports only single cores.
Things will change after Apollo.

Dark knight surprise sounds like a porn movie.

Show me a smartphone and I'll show you something wrong with it...nothing worse than people trolling these message boards and trying to act smart by complaining that a phone is not as good as it could be...guess what we can read blogs too so spare us with your nonsensical information about what the best deal is...

I would love a Dark Knight version released in the US just like Nokia did with the 800
