Nokia Lumia 900 drops to $49.99 in the US

Nokia Lumia 900 drops to .99 in the USNokia Lumia 900 users in the US currently reeling from the news that their handsets won’t get Windows Phone 8 are about to get a whole lot more, uhm, reeled.

Three months after launching, the price of the Nokia Lumia 900 in the US has dropped to $49.99 on a two-year contract.

The Nokia Lumia 900 reportedly sold quite well at first, retailing at $99 with a 24-month agreement and helped along with promotion from big-boobed lunatic Nicki Minaj.

However, early adopters were plagued with a software bug, and full rebates were offered. To make matters worse, it was recently revealed that none of the Windows Phone Mango range will be upgraded to Apollo. Instead, they'll get Windows Phone 7.8.

On the plus side, Siri thinks the Nokia Lumia 900 is the best smartphone ever, it can take a bit of a beating, and Batman likes it too.

With regards to the Nokia Lumia 900 price cut, a Nokia spokesperson said it’s “part of our ongoing lifecycle management, which is jointly done between Nokia and carrier customers."

Over to you, Jan.

All Irish networks are NOT carrying the Lumia 900 at all... The 800, 710, 610 did "not perform". Is what I hear from Vf, O2 and CPW managers. File under "rumour" if it soothes your pain! ;)

In all honesty, what's $50 when you're spending ~$100 per month for two years. This American concept that phones cost, in this case $50, is ridiculous. The total cost of ownership is more like $2450ish.

Thankfully we don't have such stupid advertising over here in the UK.

i imagine they'd have to drop the price on it - after all they just launched the atrix hd at the same (now old) $100 price point and that makes the 900 look like a bit of a rip off.

i wouldn't be surprised if there were still plenty of people who get a 900, either not knowing or not caring about not getting software upgrades in the future.
