    You have got to be kidding me.... If that turns out to be true, then Nokia and AT&T are dropping the ball here big time.

    From the article: "Lumia 900 hadnt yet received technical acceptance"; so how is that their fault?! Good grief, the expectations here are insane.

    How about Nokia send out complimentary ibuprofen to all those who have posted in this thread? I know they're not obligated, but it would be a nice gesture?

    Interesting read in the IBD regarding the release of the 900 and Titan II.....


    Nokia Lumia 900 Release Date March 18: AT&T Drops Price on HTC Titan in Advance - International Business Times
    It's Monday March 5 and nada from NOK/MSFT/ATT.

    I think the hype has been oficially killed for me.

    I am shopping for a new home A/V setup (TV/Receiver/Speakers/Gaming/everything) this weekend and all the best mid-range Denon/Pioneer/etc receivers are setup for Apple compatibility. And then there's all the other reasons to just stick with Iphone (apps, blah,blah, blah). For the first time yesterday, I am seriously considering just sticking with Apple.

    It's all compunded with a personal animous that has built up by NOK/MSFT/ATT just not giving 2 sh*ts about the 900's consumer launch date.

    My policy will be this:
    I will buy a phone on March 18. I will first go to AT&T. If the Lumia 900 is there, I will buy it. If it's not there, then I will buy whatever the latest Iphone is either at AT&T or at Sprint.

    I know Im just a speck of dust and most of you will just tell me not to have the door hit me on the way out....I get that. But man oh man, launches are important. The press is reporting March 18 as fact and NOK has not taken one opportunity to temper expectations. It may not turn out to be a PR disaster. But it's certainly a mis-step and it might cost them at least one customer; that customer in this case happens to be a CEO of a company, i.e. me, and my company is being bought by a much bigger company...i.e. I have the ability to influence a little.
    Im still going to AT&T on the 18th and that day will decide if I stay Iphone or go Lumia 900. Im tempted to go today b/c my current phone is in such bad shape...but im sticking to this policy.

    What will be amazing to me is if we still hear nothing from AT&T or NOK by the close this coming Monday. They cant sit back and let BGR and others jerk their customers around like this. After 75 days since announcement...these potential customers deserve some kind of official communication and again, I'll be shocked if we dont hear from them by Monday (at the latest).

    I don't think my expectations, nor the expectations of others in this thread are insane. If Nokia wasn't ready to release this thing relatively soon after announcing it, then they should have waited.

    By the time this thing FINALLY releases, if the rumors are true, a lot of people would have either bought a different phone, or will just wait for Apollo phones. The complete silence from Nokia and AT&T about this phone is ******* people off, and they don't HAVE to say anything, but they're stupid not to. Give a release date and start advertising the **** out of it to get, and keep people excited.

    I don't think it's insane or laughable to want a response from someone that took money to reserve one of these, so I keep hoping the Microsoft Store will put out some official information soon.

    Totally agree! You can't announce a phone in early January and release it in late April if you want to optimize success/sales. Apples strategy of tight announcement and release windows is proven best practice.

    All that said, what do we think the "coming soon" banner on the AT&T website is about if not the Lumia 900? I'm still holding out some hope.

    The coming soon banner was probably for the iPad 3 but no one ever took it down. They do not do that type of stuff for a phone launch that is now more than a month away.

    I seriously doubt someone just forgot to take it down...especially now that there's 3 bullet points.

    I really doubt it is the launch of a phone. But I would love to eat my words.

    I'm debating on getting the Nokia Lumia 900, or waiting for the new BB10 devices. Also, isn't $99.99 a little low for a flagship device?

    I'd wait for the 900, but I'm a little biased since I think blackberry is crap nowadays and have no idea what they're doing.

    And the price is supposed to be aggressive for Nokias return to the US market.

    I am with you (I've never had a BB and dont plan on it) the 900 looks good to me and the pricing is supposed to be really really agressive so that Nokia can jump in with both feet and get some immediate traction here in the US.

    That's how I'm leaning...especially since I've always been a fan of Nokia's hardware. Did they ever fix WP7 so that it's able to sync more than one calendar?

    Wasn't Luke a little short to be a storm trooper? I kid. I for one would never argue the price of $99 dollars for an LTE smart phone.

    do you know the guy? Is he "your guy" or just a randomn ATT guy. The fact that he even knew what a WP was is an accomplishment.

    He's usually pretty knowledgeable, he told me ahead of time not to expect the titan on time. That said, its not a fact, just what he told me.

    Just for kicks I called another at&t store and asked about the Nokia 900, I thought the lumia part might confuse her. First thing, she corrected me: "Do you mean the Nokia lumia 900?" Nice!
    Then, without hesitation, she told me they didn't have a date yet.
    Very impressed she knew what was what.
