Nokia has put a lot of hope and effort into the AT&T-bound Lumia 900 - the first high-end Nokia Windows Phone handset to hit American shores with LTE and now we know the release date - April 8th. This coincides with talk about Microsoft Stores getting the handset in the second week of April. The Lumia 900 is expected to come with a tempting price tag of merely $99 on contract.
The Nokia Lumia 900 launch is expected to be big with some promos going on like gift cards for apps offered along with the phone. It’s possible that Microsoft backs it up by in some way bundling the phone with an XBOX 360. Similarly, the Lumia 800 was sold with a free XBOX 360 in the UK.
Nokia and Microsoft are planning a “rolling thunder” ad campaign for Nokia Windows Phones and the Lumia 900 in particular. The marketing will include national TV ads, print and digital marketing.
Nokia has also just released some inspirational sports videos promoting the handset featuring celebrated BMX rider James Ivett, prominent free runner Pip Andersen, and renowned skateboarder Jed Cullen. Check them out below and let us know what are your expectations for Nokia's return on US soil - will it be successful or not?
- Display 4.3" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 APQ8055, Single core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 1830 mAh(8h 3G talk time)

They should really throw some stuff in there like "Do more with the Lumia 900" or "do it faster with the Lumia 900." Something that lets consumers know what the phone has to offer them. Dare I say, a more Apple like TV spot.

I agree. Attention getting, and fun comercials. (Pip Anderson is really fun to watch.) But it is time to get audiences to understand why WP is a great option. Apple is so in tune with this, I feel some users knew how to run an iPhone before even buying it.

Nokia never left the U.S... its presence was just diminished a lot. T-Mobile always had at least one Nokia availalbe (5230 Nuron, C7 Astound), and some of the prepaid carriers (and AT&T) offered (and stil offer) basic Nokia candybar and flip phones. Heck, StraightTalk is selling the old Nokia 6970 (aka Surge, originally for AT&T in 2009) as if it's new

Being a realist, I would just like you all to realize that we do NOT know the release date! Some random guy on a forum who can't even put together a grammatically accurate statement claims its release to be the 8th. I will take it with a grain of salt, as should everybody else.
