Well, we're still patiently waiting news on the former, but it's looking like the Lumia 900 will make its European debut around this time next month.
That's the word from Swiss network Swisscom, anyway, with the operator tweeting a customer to say “the Lumia 900 is with us from the beginning of May available” (as you may have guessed, that's a translation of the original tweet).
Even assuming the info is accurate, though, that's no guarantee that we'll see it here in the UK at the same time, and Nokia itself has reached near-Applesque levels of stubborn silence these days when asked about launch dates and the like.
Just to remind you, the Lumia 900 offers a similar spec to the existing Lumia 800 – 1.4GHz processor, 512MB RAM, an 8-megapixel camera and the like – but upsizes the display to a 4.3in ClearBlack AMOLED affair housed in the usual polycarbonate shell we've been accustomed to seeing from Nokia recently.
Several online retailers will happily take your money if you're looking to pre-order the Lumia 900, though it might be worth noting that some of the early reviews of the handset over in the US haven't been massively complimentary.
