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.
