Rumor: Lumia 900 already at AT&T stores; launching April 9

Neither Nokia nor AT&T have announced an official specific launch date for the long awaited Lumia 900 smartphone. However, a new report claims that the Windows Phone device has already started to ship to AT&T's various retail stores.

WMPowerUser.com reports that one of its readers, "David", managed to walk into an unnamed AT&T store location in the US and was able to get his hands on two Lumia 900s. The photo above shows the visual proof of the two Lumia 900 smartphones, one in Black and the other in Cyan.

The same report claims AT&T store employees were seen using the Lumia 900, perhaps as part of their training to sell the smartphone. Those same staff members told "David" that AT&T is officially supposed to start selling the Lumia 900 on April 9. There's no word why AT&T is holding back on selling the smartphone until that date, even while the phone is being shipped to its stores.

When it does officially go on sale, the Lumia 900 is supposed to be priced at $99.99 with a new two year contract from AT&T. Hopefully Nokia and AT&T won't make the rest of the public wait to purchase the phone in the US much longer.

John, you might want to reread that of what you read over at "WMPowerUser"... they didn't say David purchased two 900's, just that he got his hands on two to take a picture obvously. I also wen to my local AT&T store and got my hand on one myself, that doesn't mean I purchased it. You can see the pic in hand from my comment from the real store at WPCentral found here... http://www.wpcentral.com/repor...use-lumia-900#comment-91240

I would suggest that you read this thread. These kind of comments are what made me post it: http://www.neowin.net/forum/to...ns-help-your-community-out/

It might be a long read for you, so just pay attention to the bits about respect, the "report a problem" button, the idea of constructive criticism, and the idea that you write your own article and submit it rather than ridiculing others for their attempts. Actually, just read the whole thing.

I want to buy this phone when it is released but the lack of visual voice mail from ATT is just a turn off. There is no way that I am calling in and to check my messages and have play each one individually like in 1999.

I'm on Orange UK with a lumia 800 and there is no visual voicemail, not even planned AFAIK, massive fail!
