AT&T really dropped the ball on this. Should have been out in February or earlier in March. Now that so many other next-gen phones are so near I fear Nokia's missed its opening. I HOPE not, but all the carrier b.s. they probably put on it unnecessarily pushed its launch date and may make this a relatively stillborn launch, much like the Galaxy S2 was overshadowed by the iFail 4s' launch days before

Actually Box, I disagree with you, but not for the reasons you may think.

Originally, the Apollo update was slated for a mid-Summer 2012 launch. To me, this was great timing: Multi-core, Hi-def screen support, launched about the same time as WP8 for PC's and the Tablet entries to promote the cross platform ecosystem. Coming in Mid-Summer also gave them a chance to slip the next OS version in between the hype of ICS Androids and all the rumors and hype of the next iPhone launch in the late part of 2012. If Microsoft had stuck to that plan, the 900 launching in April would have blown it. Apollo should be gearing up, and with the launch of low end Tango (which will kick off on time as compared to when they said it would) WP could actually be competing for a serious third place world wide in the OS race. The 900 would have been unimportant as better Nokia's were a couple months away.

But, Apollo is now a late 2012 launching, probably November. That gives Mango devices about 8 months to try and compete with top end offerings from Android. That puts it in the dead center of any iPhone 5 hype (if Apple sticks to it's rumored schedule). How does WP get momentum? How do they compete with quad-core ICS? Samsung has already said they are going to wait on Apollo for new devices. LG is silent, and will most likely have only a budget offering if one at all. HTC is going to release the Titan 2, but it is just a LTE update, (I think the big camera is just a gimick) and any "new" devices from HTC are Apollo bound. T-Mobiles Nokia is selling well, but Verizon and Sprint are waiting on Apollo as well.

I think the 900 should wait until May, than explode with promotion and hype. This is the only device that has a prayer of keeping WP in the minds of consumers until Apollo kicks off. How can it hold up for 8 months? It can't. Maybe 3 to 4 months if it is a great device, which I believe it will be. But it is only on one carrier, and WP needs to start showing sales improvements. I am worried when Apollo does launch, 2012 will be a lost cause.

What is the point of doing a software tour? It's windows phone so they on the software front, things are near identical until major updates.
