Nokia Lumia 900 pre-orders are now accepted at Microsoft retail stores
First the good news: the Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T is now available for pre-order. If you are one of those people who want to be among the first Lumia 900 owners, you can reserve a unit for yourself in exchange for $25. The smartphone is available in black or cyan, and you are required to pick your color option in advance.

Now the not so good news: pre-ordering the device can be done only at a Microsoft retail outlet. The offer is not available online at this time, so unless you live close to a brick and mortar Microsoft store, we are afraid that taking advantage of the deal would be a little tricky.

For those of you who are not so familiar with the handset, the Nokia Lumia 900 was officially announced at CES last month and is currently regarded as the top Nokia Lumia smartphone in existence. It sports a 4.3-inch WVGA AMOLED display and is powered by a 1.4GHz APQ8055 chipset. Its back is graced by an 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and its 1830 mAh battery should get you 7 hours of continuous talk time. Oh and did we mention that it is has an LTE radio for riding on AT&T's speedy 4G network?

Unfortunately, there is no word regarding the actual price of the Nokia Lumia 900, but if rumors are on the right track, we might see it bearing a $99 on-contract price tag. We also expect those $25 that you have to pay in advance to be subtracted from the final price of the device. We are not aware of an official release date either, but some say that the smartphone could hit the shelves no later than March 18.

hmmm really considering picking one of these up, just a little hesitant with the 910 rumored to be coming soon. I wonder what the off contract price will be

I thought lumia 900 was exclusive to ATT but it's being offered worldwide. So what's going with tmo, Verizon, and sprint?

You will be paying more to be the first one to receive the phone which the price most likely drop 3-5 months from release. Also, chances are you'll get a bigger chance of receiving dud units and even act as a test subject for defects to be fixed in 3 months. All phones, cars and electronics have these nasty habit. Suckers buy first.

I like this phone and Nokia but I haven't seen any Windows phone with talk time over 10 hours. Why? Nokia used to have pretty good battery life in the age of feature phones.

Eveybody had pretty good battery life in the age of feature phones. Nokia is probably under promising... I'm sure they'll still have better battery life than 9 out of 10 feature and smartphones out there
