Lumia 900 32 GB version to be sold soon

Could we soon see a 32 GB version of the Nokia Lumia 900 on some store shelves? That's what a new Twitter message from the wireless carrier O2 Germany claims. The company claims that a listing on its website for a white 32 GB version of the Lumia 900 is not a typo.

Nokia has never indicated in the past that it would release a 32 GB version of the Windows Phone device. At the moment, no one can buy anything but the 16 GB model in three different colors. The message from O2 Germany didn't indicate a price tag or a launch date for this new version.

The Windows Phone device was also shown as sporting 32 GB of storage in an image Twitted by "XB-Mod" of an O2 product listing. So it would appear that Nokia does indeed plan to give smartphone buyers more model choices than just different colors for the Lumia 900.

The big question: Will this new model, with double the storage of the current Lumia 900, make its way to US shores and if so what price will it have? The 16 GB model sells for just $99.99 (with a two year contract) via AT&T.

Was considering the Lumia 900, but thought it might be worth it to wait a few more months for WP8. We'll see how it goes.

Well, I don't know if this is good or bad but since getting my Windows Phone; I don't "play" with it as much as my Android phone. I do what I need to do with it and that's it.

Now if we can only get VPN for it!

I think it's time for MS and/or nokia to put the debate about whether WP7 handsets will run Apollo/WP8 to bed. If Nokia are yet to sell handsets which will be superceeded in a few months I think they can kiss sales good bye as well as any returning customers and if Nokia being late to the party have a special deal with MS that their hardware will upgrade where others won't manufacturers like HTC will be royally ****ed!

This is a very tricky rope they are trying to walk. They either have to provide the update for all manufacturers for atleast 2nd generation phones or not at all. Given that manufacturer are still launching WP7 devices, i would think that the update might make its way to these devices. If not, sales will definitely take a hit.

Indeed. The Lumia 900 is tempting because it has a bigger screen than my 800 and 32 GB are an added bonus but without an official clarification both from MS and Nokia the wallet remains closed.............

Agreed. Honestly, I expect most devices (If not all) to get the update with possibly some things turned off (Ala the front facing camera in Mango). Not doing so kind of goes against everything Microsoft believes in (As well as what they really need to do in order to secure market share at this point)...

Had a play with the 900 at the weekend, lovely phone.
Might have to make it my next handset if WP8 can install/run on it.
Plus more storage is always a bonus!

Agreed. I'm due for an upgrade in the fall on Verizon. I hope that Nokia has a nice phone like the 900 with WP8 on board that I can upgrade to. And more storage is always nice...
