You may have heard that current Windows Phone 7 devices are not be eligible for an upgrade to Windows Phone 8. This probably makes it harder to move current stock, something had to be done. In the case of AT&T, they’ve decided to cut the price of the Windows Phone 7-powered Nokia Lumia 900 down to a mere $50. That’s really cheap, considering the hardware that you’re packing, like the 1.4GHz processor and the 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display.
Of course, that $50 price isn’t for an outright purchase. You will have to sign up for a qualifying contract. That said, at least you’ll be getting upgraded to Windows Phone 7.8, complete with the updated Start screen. Tiles can get resized, for instance, but it is going to bug you this fall when the first batch of Windows Phone 8 devices start hitting shelves.
What do you think? Is the price slash enough to make the Nokia Lumia 900 enticing for folks considering a new smartphone? Or are they still more inclined to get a new Android device or iPhone? Does the pink version persuade or dissuade you?
