THE PORTAL OF NEWS RELEATED TO NOKIA
Nokia has cut the price of its flagship Lumia 900 phone in half just three months after it hit the U.S. market. The Windows-based smartphone now costs $49.99 with a two-year contract from AT&T.
The new price took effect Sunday, The Wall Street Journal reports. Nokia’s and AT&T‘s website have both been updated to reflect the change.
The price cut comes less than a month after Microsoft unveiled its next-generation mobile OS, Windows 8.
A Nokia spokesperson told the Journal that the move was “a normal strategy that is put in place during the life cycle of most phones.”
Sales of the Lumia 900 initially appeared to be strong; the device was listed as the best-selling smartphone on Amazon the week following its release. Reviews were overwhelmingly positive.
