AT&T's Sunday: Motorola ATRIX HD launches for $99.99, Nokia Lumia 900 price sliced in half
cost you just $99.99 with your signature on a 2-year pact.
Meanwhile, the flagship Windows Phone model has had its price sliced in half starting today at AT&T. This move had been expected, and now it is official. For $49.99 and a signed 2-year contract, the Nokia Lumia 900 can be yours. The device offers a 4.3 inch WVGA AMOLED screen with pixel density of 217ppi. Under the hood is a single-core 1.4GHz processor with 512MB of RAM and native storage of 16GB. There is no microSD slot, but there is an 8MP shooter on back that captures video in 720p at 30fps. LTE connectivity is supported and Windows 7.5 is installed. Inside the phone is an 1830mAh battery.
With current Windows Phone models not receiving an update to Windows Phone 8, there is nothing that carriers can do but cut the price of existing handsets. Windows Phone 8 will allow manufacturers to offer units with multi-core processors, higher resolution screens and a microSD slot to name just a few things for Windows Phone fans to look forward to.
So there it is. Whether you are looking for a high-end Android device at a very reasonable cost, or if you want to buy a flagship Windows Phone model 50% cheaper than it was on Saturday, AT&T seems to be the place where the party is on Sunday.
