Lumia 900 in Canada to get Dark Knight Rises tie-in?

The launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 is getting closer and closer, and not just here in the US, where it is expected to be made available via AT&T in mid-March. In Canada, Rogers is also going to be selling the Windows Phone device. However, an interesting ad for the phone via Rogers hints strongly that there might be a tie-in with a certain massive blockbuster summer 2012 movie.

As reported by WPCentral.com, the ad, shown above, has a very interesting last line: "When you pre-order a Lumia 900, Nokia and Rogers have a surprise for you. Hint: there's a hero rising out of the darkness."

That's almost certainly a reference to The Dark Knight Rises, the third and final movie in the Christopher Nolan-directed Batman film trilogy that's coming this summer. There are no other details as to what this tie-in to the Lumia 900 might be about.

This isn't the first time the Lumia family has had a Dark Knight Rises connection. In December, the UK members of the press got to see a sneak peek of the movie in London and received a very limited edition Lumia 800 with a a black finish and the Batman logo laser etched on the back.

Update - The original version of the story said that Rogers was based in the UK. We regret the error.
