    I just read that Nokia is going all-out for the hippy-extravaganza in Texas (a.k.a. South By Southwest [SXSW]) and they come right out on their official blog to say they will have the Lumia 900 for AT&T available to demo (along with the 710, 800):

    Guests will have the opportunity to check out the new Nokia Lumia portfolio of Windows Phone devices, including the much-anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 from AT&T and the recently launched Nokia Lumia 710 and Nokia Lumia 800.

    Also, AT&T is having a series of events all next week:

    Nokia @ AT&T’s “The Spot” during SXSW Music
    March 13-18, 6th Street, downtown Austin
    Featuring Nokia Lumia 900 from AT&T

    Anyone else think they could make an announcement there "get the Lumia 900 at the AT&T store next week"?

    I'm liking this, its the closest thing we have to an official release date yet to be honest.

    I'd love to think that, but with all the cynicism going around in the "kill the hype" thread, I'm starting to feel like I should just stop caring until they give us a real date.

    This seems like the last big event before the rumored 18th launch, not that I'm really expecting it on that day anymore.

    That would be a nice rebound if it happens that way!

    Ahhh anyone down in Austin to write us a little hands-on review?

    The odds that they give the Lumia 900's launch date at SXSW is about....5%

    Ugghh, I just spent a week vacation in Austin a few weeks ago. Either way this would have been an awesome addition to my trip to an awesome city. Eagerly awaiting anything Nokia . Have a feeling this might be my first non HTC phone since the Mogul. Good times ahead.

    It would certainly fit the "amazing everyday" campaign to announce at this type of venue.

    So, I was in town and got to stop by the Nokia tents briefly. It was *packed*, there were many phones on display (mainly 900s), it's as beautiful as you think it is, lighter than I expected, and no info at all on release other than "coming soon".

    Totally wrong crowd for asking about it. These were event staff who put on events - they had no information to give. It wouldn't surprise me if it was all subcontracted out.
