Since the release of the Nokia Lumia 900 back in April things have not been looking up from a lack of carrier confidence to poor sales estimates with a price drop on the contract prices.
The Lumia 900 has had a tough life since its release. The Lumia 900 was not only supposed to be the savior of Nokia but also inject Windows Phone more into the minds of consumers. The low selling price for the Lumia 900 was also a further push as a mass market device, keeping it cheap to get the attention of consumers. The death of the Lumia came about last month when Microsoft announced that the Windows 7 devices won’t be able to upgrade to the new Windows Phone 8 Operating System. This then led the Lumia 900 to lose consumer interests overnight.
With the recent price cut of the Lumia 900, Nokia may not actually get the attention they really want with the Lumia 900 rubbing shoulders with other ancient and irrelevant members of AT&T’s $49 smartphones like the Galaxy Exhilarate, Impulse 4G and the HTC Vivid.
So looking at this now, the price cut can either boost sales by making the Lumia 900 more available to consumers or turning it into a product where no one has an interest. However, Nokia and Microsoft may have plans for the Lumia 900 but judging from past indications, it won’t be a good one.
