    Nokia Lumia 900 Launch Could Be Imminent

    Money quotes:

    "In a bit of a bizarre move, Microsoft has pulled the Nokia Lumia 900 pre-order offer from its retail stores located around the United States."

    "Someone close to the situation tells The Verge that Nokia is going to announce the price and release date for the Nokia Lumia 900 shortly. So maybe it won’t be launching on March 18th after all.

    And maybe, it won’t be launching for $99 on-contract either.

    Who knows."

    Im not too familiar with how the FCC works these things: if the 900 got approval, would it be posted online in an FCC docket someplace?

    Well if the 800 is selling for something ridiculous as $800 off contract, how much will the 900 cost?

    Probably $550. That's the fairly standard AT&T off contract price for top tier smartphones.

    ATT stores receive micro sims for 900?

    They better honor it. They have my 25 bucks and my patience is on the line.
    I couldnt go to the store to preorder since I'm travelling. My wife went to MS store in atlanta. She was shocked that there were no signs anywhere about the 800 or the 900. Nobody talked to her about the preorder, no banners anywhere.

    She said she was able to preorder because she knew about the preorder. Otherwise no ads at all! Its a shame.

    Curious... With an "imminent" or march 18 launch so close. Why haven't we seen Nokia handing out review models to our trusted online/youtube reviewers. I've been clammering for an unboxing and part 1&2 body and software review.

    It's been a week since MS pulled the offer; hopefully they (Nokia/MS/ATT) break their silence soon, it's been deafening lately.

    March 18th is a long ways off. You probably won't see reviews pop up until the week before launch.

    I'd think review units would be making their way out by now. It sucks having the short CES videos be our only exposure.

    Why are they making us wait for any news? It's frustrating! Shouldn't my $25 get me a confirmation?!
