From the WPCentral Forums -- Nokia Lumia 900: Week one recap

WP Central

Wow! What a week we have been having so far. If you haven’t heard, Nokia is launching a new device in the US on AT&T called a Lumia 900/ We have all the news on the front page and even more discussions in our forums.

This week we are approaching the April 8th release date of the Lumia 900 so we are trying to curve our excitement by talking with some AT&T reps that already have the device.  If you are interested in talking with an employee of AT&T that has a Lumia 900, you can check out one of these threads.

We started the week in anticipation of the March 30th date when we would be able to pre-order our Lumia 900. Forum member scrapple started this thread “Preorder time on the 30th?” so we would have a place to talk about something we could only wait to do and we spent the 30th talking about who has already pre ordered there Lumia 900. Then comes this thread “Backordered Status?” where we discuss our order statuses. You can catch our official opinion on this topic on our main page: AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 sold out of pre-orders? Probably not.

If you’re in the St. Louis area, sporting a Windows Phone (Lumia 900) and if you would like a chance to hang out with other people who love Windows Phone, come join speedtouch at our first ever Windows Phone Meet up. You can get the full details in this threads: [April 14] St. Louis Windows Phone Meet up.

Our developers have been hard at work giving us lots of new Windows phone apps. You will have to visit our Spotlight forums to get in on all the App goodness. Here are just a few of the titles that have been posted:

  • Dear T-Mobile, thanks for going for the Lumia 710 instead of going for this sexy device and missing out on one of the most anticipated launches ever. Keep giving us all the lower end Windows Phones. Sincerely, loyal customers still waiting for a great WP device.
  • I think you can get the unlocked one it has the tmob bands its hsdpa+
  • I sure hope you're right cause I've heard some reports that it will only get Edge 2g network on T-Mobile. If not then, disregard last comment.lol But then again we still have to spend $450 for a phone.
  • True
  • Dear tmobile customers.. Chill out already,, there will be new phones coming 3rd quarter this year.. Probably just in time for HD7 peeps who got there phone at launch to be eligible for upgrades (ie true hardcore windows phone fanatics who have been there since day one). Plain and simple, radar wasn't moving too well til the lumia came out and now both sell very well.. Hate to say but most TMO customers are cheap and want cheap phones and its easy to turn someone wanting a cheap android to get a lumia or radar.. Believe me, I'm not one for patience but I have faith the next windows phone on TMO will be a step up from the rest, its just the cycle of the business
  • I hope so and I would love that.
  • To be fair to T-Mobile, I really don't think they're big enough to have done the sort of launch campaign Nokia and MS were looking for.
  • If you’re in the St. Louis area, sporting a Windows Phone (Lumia 900) and if you would like a chance to hang out with other people who love Windows Phone, come join speedtouch at our first ever Windows Phone Meet up.
     
    Thanks Dave for the nod, should be a good time. My buddy bvan314 has his Cyan Lumia on preorder. No reason he shouldn't have it in hand for us who don't to play with. Still keeping my Titan...for now? Also bringing 2 fully unlocked Arrives to play with.
  • Like Steve said, thanks a lot Dave.  I appreciate the front page treatment.  It's going to be a great time and I hope to snag a few pictures to post as well.  Thanks again!
