The Lumia 900 isnt suppose to go on sale until Sunday, the 8th, doesdnt mean Nokia cant start the Windows Phone party early! The WP Retail Insider Twitter page has word that Nokia will be having a huge launch event for the 900 in Times Square in New York City at 7 pm E.S.T.
This isnt the first time that Microsoft has hosted something Windows Phone related in New York City. With the launch of Windows Phone 7.5, Microsoft threw a huge celebration in New York with a giant Windows Phone that was at least seven stories high. A lot of momentum will be going into this Lumia launch here in the U.S. With Nokia Lumia 900 preorders apparently selling out, AT&T going on record that this launch will be “iPhone-like” and the handset being priced at $99 on a two year contract, I look forward to what Nokia has planned for the rest of 2012.
