Nokia Lumia 900 launch reportedly delayed to April

One of the most anticipated smartphone launches of 2012 is the Lumia 900 from Nokia. The Windows Phone-based device was officially announced in January at CES 2012 and got great reviews from the media who got to try it out. AT&T is already confirmed to be the exclusive US wireless carrier for the Lumia 900.

While neither Nokia nor AT&T have officially offered a release date for the Lumia 900, most reports expected the smartphone to go on sale in mid-March in the US. However, a new story on the Boy Genius Report web site now claims we may have to wait a bit longer to get our hands on the device.

The report, which uses an unnamed but "trusted" source, claims that AT&T will now sell the Lumia 900 on April 22, which amounts to a delay of about a month compared to the unofficial launch dates that have been reported in the past. The BGR story adds that the price of the smartphone will remain the same as expected: $99.99 with a new two year contract from AT&T.

The Lumia 900's hardware specs include a 4.3 inch screen, a 1.4 Ghz processor, 512 MB of memory, 16 GB of storage, an eight megapixel camera and support for AT&T's LTE network.

Just as I lol how Neowin keeps posting articles saying x has been delayed, when x never had an announced release date to begin with A load of people rumouring a release date, and then later changing that date doesn't equal a delay.

The report, which uses an unnamed but "trusted" source,

Uh huh. According to my unnamed but "highly trusted" source it won't be delayed and in fact will be released in 2 hours! /s

AT&T still has this banner on their website: http://www.att.com/media/att/2...mailcapture-BG_AA001HD9.jpg

which is presumed to be for the Lumia 900. Not to mention Nokia is giving away a few handsets to devs and at their job fair. Doubt it'll be delayed.
