The Lumia 900 Windows Phone has dropped out of the top three selling mobile devices on AT&T, according to data collected by Canaccord Genuity. The Nokia flagship smartphone has enjoyed a number of months in the top three positions for best-selling devices (we covered Amazon's list), but due to weakening sales it has since fallen prey to competition.
Michael Walkley, analyst at Canaccord Genuity, had the following to say on the Lumia 900 absence.
"Our checks indicated weaker sales for the Nokia Lumia 900 at AT&T and ongoing minimal BlackBerry sales at all four U.S carriers."
This was to be expected, especially with Windows Phone 8 just around the corner, and Nokia easing up on the intense marketing campaigning. We're likely to see their Apollo hardware take the top spots once released, and knowing AT&T they'll only settle for the high-end Windows Phone.
With the announcements to be made tomorrow, not to mention HTC's event on September 19th, it's an exciting time for Windows Phone.
