Pink Nokia Lumia 900 coming to AT&T July 15th

Nokia's Lumia 900 smartphone launched in April with two colors, your basic black and cyan. A couple of weeks later, a white version of the phone launched. Today, Nokia announced that the Windows Phone-based device is getting a new color choice that may be more popular with the female consumer.

The pink version will go on sale in US AT&T stores, along with the wireless carrier's website, on Sunday, July 15th. Other than the different color, there's no other difference in this Lumia 900 compared to the other models in terms of features and price tag.

Nokia's blog states:

One note about the pink color – this is not a case where pink paint is applied on the top layer. The Lumia 900 is polycarbonate, meaning it’s constructed of one piece of plastic – the unibody construction is pink all the way through. So, if you get a scratch on your Lumia 900, it won’t show obviously because of the amazing construction process.

Who would want to buy a Lumia 900 now that they know WP 8 is down the pipe?

And for all of those arguing that Android and iOS do the same...no, really, it's not.

The iPhone 4 can run iOS5. Officially it won't run Siri because of hardware constraints, because ostensibly Apple is about presenting the best user experience and iPhone 4/iPad 2 are a bit underpowered for Siri. Whether or not that's really true is up for debate, yes, but what is true is that Apple didn't promise iPhone 4 users "iOS 4.5" when iOS 5 was announced.

And Android flagship devices (which the Lumia 900 arguably is) get updated to their next version:
Nexus One: released with Eclair, upgraded to Froyo AND Gingerbread
Nexus S: released with Gingerbread, upgraded to Ice Cream Sandwich
Galaxy Nexus: released with Ice Cream Sandwich, upgrading to Jelly Bean on release

For the sake of your argument, isnt iOS5 just like what 7.8 is to Windows? Just more software upgrades? Which is all iOS has done really? Didnt upgrading some iPhones leave to them being almost un-useable in some cases? (not an iphone user but i recall something about the 3s erra or something like that, correct me if i'm wrong)

WP8 is a brand new OS running on a completely different platform, i think WP7.8 is a acceptable upgrade for a phone OS. Android for example has alot of phone which due to actual hardware limitations cant run the newest version of the software (Being low speced) which are STILL being sold today.

I would like to think someone at XDA will allow WP8 upgrades or MS will some way 'patch' wp7 to open the door to WP8 ports/installs on the handsets... Time will tell

My point is that neither Android nor Apple "abandon" (maybe not exactly the best choice of word there) their flagship phone that quickly. Whether or not the upgrades from iOS 4 to 5 or Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich are software upgrades or not doesn't matter, the point is - neither platform tells their high end users, "oh, we're changing everything (in Windows' case, AGAIN). Sorry, you can't come along."
And while I agree that sometimes abandoning an old platform such as WM6 is necessary, it's also really bad form when the platform you're abandoning isn't even 2 years old. Especially when your market share is hovering in the single digits: why force some of your most loyal users to change yet again when you just made them change?

And as it currently stands the Lumia 900 and all other Lumia phones have currently received or will be receiving 2 updates that it known, more will also come too, So at the end of the day I will say android phones would fit the DEAD saying more than the Lumia.

so over 64% of android devices run some version of Ginhgerbread which is 7 updates that they have not received to bring them to the current OS. 18% of android devices run Froyo which is 11 updates from the current OS version. 5% of devices run Éclair which is 12 behind the current OS version. That accounts for around 86% of android devices today. Most of this 86% will never see ICS and probably none of them will see Jellybean. So tell me which device is dead.

oh stop it with all your sense and reason, this is neowin!

hahaha sorry just fed up with all these android crack heads and there always updated phones, they must really be getting brain washed by these devices to think anything else.

Windows Phone obviously.

#1 Your average Android user doesn't know what the dessert release means. The same goes for average users of iOS 5. They have no idea what they are running or what is new. All they know is that the 4S has Siri. Same with your average Windows Phone users.
#2 As long as your average user have apps that work, they are happy
#3 Let's say next year Angry Birds Underwater is released. Those Android users that are stuck on Gingerbread will be able to play it. Do you real think companies like Rovio or even Instagram are going to release a 7.8 Windows Fail app and a Windows 8 app concurrently? The answer is NO! So when that app is released, you'll see why isn't it on my Lumia 900. Wahhhh!

Sorry I'm just fed up with all these Windows Fail crack heads and their lack of apps, they must really be getting brain washed by these failed devices to think anything else.

like I said in the above post most dev will still write for 7.5 unless they are using hardware that is only available to wp8. so yes rovio or instagram or whatever will still write the apps for 7.5 as we all know 7.5 apps will run just fine on wp8. and I am sure that people that have a wp7 or 7.5 device are happy will those too.

Windows phone is far from a failure. Carriers want a different OS and phones to push, they are fed up with how much it costs to have apple phones and they are fed up with probmatic android devices and the fear of loosing money cause apple kills the shipments before they even go on sale. I have every app that I need and use on wp7 why do I want 600 apps that do the same thing

Let's say next year Angry Birds Underwater is released. Those Android users that are stuck on Gingerbread will be able to play it.

1. If a developer needs hardware features from Windows Phone 8, he will target windows phone 8. If he doesn't he can target windows phone 7 and 8 at the same time with the exact same app.

And considering the Windows Phone store has over 100,000k apps and is growing much faster than android did and almost as fast as iOS did I'd say thats pretty good.

Sorry that trick won't work with me. Seeing as how I own an Android Phone, iPhone and a Windows Phone. When I am at the Windows Market Place, I see mostly crap.

There are diff between tech savvy and normal people. Tech savvy always thinks people only buy new technologies. So if something doesn't offer future upgrade path, it is dead tech to them. For normal people, they dont' give the **** of tech savvy think. As long as they like prodcut, and it does the job for them.

so as I said above 96% of android devices are dead too, why are we just picking out a Windows Phone here when a much larger mobile marketshare has been completely been put out to pasture by google and android.

Maybe for the same reason you keep picking on Android but being very careful not to mention Apple?
Not matter what is the name of the adored idol worshipers are always worshipers.

It never ceases to amaze me how short-sighted and yes, stupid some people here are.. We, visitors of tech sites, are just a minute portion of the market and to the general public it's irrelevant whether WP8 will come to this phone. And actually in the big picture is is of NO importance whatsoever.

Like andrew already said. Dead. I hope this information trickles down to this phones demographic. I will surely be letting all the young girls I know about this dead end phone and not to buy it.

All zero of them?

I would say that is zero and at the same time maybe same to them that all those android phones are also dead and were dead long before the lumia 900

Correct, Zero :-) No need. The Lumia Nokia phones are not selling anyway. NOKIA is ready for a bankruptcy. it won't be long.

Nokia is actually a long ways away from Bankruptcy and the Lumia line is selling ok, not record numbers but ok. Nokia has actually a lot more going for it than say HTC. I really like android dummies coming on and saying the 2 cents worth on a Windows Phone subject.

WHY?? This phone is already dead.

you are just an idiot, there is still the 7.8 update and more updates via Nokia plus more exclusive apps on the way. By your reasoning 96% of android phones are dead also.

96%? I'm loving the randomness of that number xD

Any new apps written for WP8 won't work. WP7 might have 150,000 apps and that's it. Your "average user" will want to play the popular games and use apps like Wells Fargo and United airlines but won't be able to with this phone.

If it works in its current state, and provides all the features the user wants, it's not dead

wrong, only apps written in native code or using a new API won't work. there will many apps made for wp8 that'll run on WP7.8

Also the full list of what will be provided to current devices hasn't been released yet.

How come WP is allowed to use that excuse but Android isn't? xD

Oh and btw, your maturity level is revealed by how quickly you resort to name calling.

I really don't think its name calling when such a stupid statement is made by someone without any real knowledge of what they are talking about and have never used such a phone, That is pretty much the definition of an idiot. If you want actual numbers and percentages just look below at my post does state the current up to date facts and percentages of your precious android os.

andrewbares said,

If the app doesn't have to use hardware or function specific for WP8 the programmer will most likely write his app to work on 7.5 as 7.5 apps will also run on 8

Can you install custom ROM on Nokia 900? As far as I know it is still impossible, on Android devices you can........ Using your attitude I could call you an idiot but ....I am not you..... Thanks God.

Believe it or not, this phone still makes calls and sends texts *shock/horror*
