Nokia Lumia 900 headed to Portugal, elsewhere?

Even though officially Nokia is suppose to be mum on the issue, that hasn't stopped Nokia Portugal via their Facebook page from speaking about the 900 availability there.

In a comment on their wall they explicitly state that the Lumia 900 will be launching there at some point:

"Por fim, respondendo à questão do Daniel, sim, vamos também lançar o Nokia 900 em Portugal." / "Finally, answering the question Daniel, yes, we will also launch the Nokia 900 in Portugal. "

And no, they don't seem to be confusing it with the Lumia 800 which is what the original discussion was about. The Lumia 900 was announced as an AT&T "exclusive" but many believe that deal to only last from anywhere from 45 days to 3 months, with world-wide launches coming by mid 2012. Next month, Mobile World Congress is occurring in Barcelona and it may be a good time for Nokia to start announcing when that device will launch for the rest of the world. At any rate, we're seeing more and more of these smaller Nokia channels mentioning the device, which is a good sign.

    That makes it announced by all 3 major carriers. Also, on that same Facebook page, Nokia Portugal says that the 800 will be available within the week.

  • Beginning to wonder if I should've waited for the apparently inevitable U.K release instead of buying the Lumia 800 earlier this week... Ah well, too late now so no regrets. The 800 is still a stunning phone and the 900 doesn't drastically improve upon it, nothing there I can't live without.
  • Hmmm, I have a Titan and phone envy!

  • Nokia Lumia 900 is equipped with Windows Phone Tango operating system and gives 3G network. The design is much more similar to the Lumia series, but the rear is a bit different.
