Nokia Lumia 900 to drop to $49.99 starting Sunday?
It seems that AT&T might also be feeling the same pressure with the Nokia Lumia line. As the exclusive U.S. retailer of the Windows Phone flagship device, AT&T needs to do something to light a fire under sales. According to an employee at AT&T, it has decided to slice the price of the Nokia Lumia 900 in half to $49.99 on contract starting Sunday. This bit of speculation was said to be confirmed by another AT&T employee higher up on the ladder. As we mentioned to you on Thursday, the Nokia Lumia 900 has dropped back to number three on Amazon's list of its best selling AT&T handsets, which would seemingly indicate a loss of momentum in sales for the phone. Along with the reduced pricing, AT&T stores will continue to throw in $50 of free accessories with the purchase of the phone.
Besides the speculation of a price cut coming to the Nokia Lumia 900 on Sunday, the day is also supposed to bring with it the launch of a new pink model of the device for AT&T. While the new pink model could help generate some higher sales of the Nokia Lumia 900 to women, if there is a huge pick up in orders we would suggest that the price cut is more responsible than anything else.
