It would appear that the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows has done well during it's opening weekend. While many scratched their heads at an Easter Sunday launch, the Lumia 900 was available for pre-order with many receiving the new Windows Phone on the Friday before the official launch date. The pre-launch exposure kept everyone informed and while odd, the Easter Sunday launch apparently was a non-issue.
While we don't have sales figures from AT&T we can look to another strong indicator of sales, Amazon.com's Best Sellers Lists. The Nokia Lumia 900 now holds the top two spots on Amazon.com's Best Selling Cell Phones with Service list (black #1, cyan #2).
While holding the top two spots on the Cell Phone Best Seller list by the same phone is rare, what's even more impressive is that the Nokia Windows Phones are holding high spots on the more broader reaching Cell Phones and Accessories Best Sellers list. The new Windows Phones also hold the top two spots on the "Movers and Shakers" on this Best Seller list. This list is composed with everything from phones to screen protectors to cases and everything in between. At last check, the Lumia 900 Cyan has moved from 527th to 70th and the Lumia 900 Black jumped from 192nd to 30th on this list.
It will be interesting to see what staying power the Lumia 900 will have. We know it's a quality Windows Phone but will the marketing efforts of AT&T turn others heads. How will the availability of the other quality Windows Phone, the HTC Titan II, impact the 900's sales? Also remember that we still have the white Lumia 900 heading to market on April 22nd. The white Windows Phone may help keep the Windows Phone momentum going strong.
