Nokia Lumia 900  (Source: Nokia)
AT&T is having a very generous deal on the unreleased Lumia 900

We don't know how long this is going to last, but AT&T is currently offering the Nokia Lumia 900 for free with a two-year contract. An eagle-eyed Neowin forum member first spotted the deal, as AT&T is currently offering $100 in instant savings on select smartphones.
 
The Lumia 900 is priced at $99 with a qualifying two-year contract, so the $100 instant rebate makes it free. According to AT&T, if you pre-order now, your phone will ship on April 5.
 
Jeff Bradley, chief of AT&T's hardware devices division, stated that the Lumia 900 would make a big splash on AT&T’s wireless network at launch. "At all levels, this is a notch above anything we've ever done," sad Bradley in a CNET interview this week. "Before you walk in to the store, you know this is our hero phone.  We're going big.  We're really bullish."

 
We're not sure if this $100 instant rebate on the unreleased Lumia 900 is a glitch or just AT&T being extremely generous with its flagship Windows Phone device. However, if you're at all interested in Nokia's latest and greatest now is the time to pre-order.

No I remember that story quite well. Fun stuff.

Sounds like a great deal. If anything, I hope it motivates Google to improve their stuff. I guess ICS is vastly improved but more can be done. We'll see if the 18 months requirement is enforced for stuff like the HTC One series (though it seems at least their 1 year old stuff is getting ICS).

Yea, I liked my EVO 4G quite a bit, no hard feelings there. It was a nice little Android, will miss it!

Although, I'll still probably keep it around as an app testing device, though, so it might not be completely retired yet. :)

ICS is nice, but I think Google can push the bounds a bit more in the UI space. More competition is always a good thing... I'm pretty excited to spend some more time with the core WP apps and compare and contrast my UI experience, coming from Android.

I'd definitely consider another Android in the future, but I like WP, the limited time I've spent with it -- plus this deal was too sweet to pass up... Been plotting my Sprint exit for a while, so the time seemed right.

Cell phones without wireless plans still have lots of neat uses with your Wifi. You can Skype with them etc etc. Also Logitech Harmony remotes can suck it, NOTHING makes a better universal remote than a smartphone with a good remote app.

Jason, would you post a brief Lumia 900 review here after you played with it for a couple of weeks?

What I want to know is your thoughts on the Marketplace and the general environment. To say Windows Phone's developer base is sparse is being kind. Aside from the most basic aspects of browsing and email and the like, do you feel WP7 provides all the support for any eventuality you might come across? Gaming of any type appear to be virtually non-existent in Windows Phone as well, especially 3D.

You're a braver man than I am. With how Microsoft treated the Zune, a platform I really grew to love, then threw it under the bus when it didn't become a world beater despite their neglect....I just wouldn't take the risk of them killing off yet another failing project right after I commit to it. By this point in time Android already hit like 20% market share. How long is Microsoft going to keep this brick afloat and will history repeat itself.

I don't really find the marketplace lacking that much at all. The biggest thing that I see as missing are mobile banking applications. Some exist, but not with any company that I bank with.

I will admit that I don't game a ton (at least with respect to large major games) on my phone, but the games that I do play I've enjoyed quite a bit (I have at least 20 loaded on there and I play some regularly perhaps at least once a week).

I feel that the platform is very strong and it offers quite a bit of functionality in a very easy to use interface, and the performance is utterly amazing. It isn't very easy to imagine, but my first gen WP device frequently outperforms in regular usage much more advanced (spec wise) Android phones. Just basic functionality like opening up a web browser, loading a site, zooming and scrolling that site, scrolling through text messages, etc.

I highly recommend it. My wife uses it too and she enjoys it as well, and she isn't a very technically inclined individual at all.

Jason

Pandora radio is another huge missing app on the WP7
