Nokia Lumia 900 gets price cut on AT&T

Nokia Lumia 900
​​​AT&T has slashed the price of the Nokia Lumia 900 to $49.99, with a two-year contract. That's half of the original price of $99.99, when the Lumia 900 was first available in April.

The Lumia 900 has only been in the market for around three months and there is no official indication, or sales figures, if the Microsoft Windows Phone platform, which uses live tiles instead of application icons, is gaining traction with consumers.

The Lumia 900 has a 4.3-inch display, with 16 gigabytes of memory and a 16 megapixel camera.

The Finland-based Nokia , who in 1987 introduced its first handheld mobile phone, used to be the darling of the mobile phone market. But it has been challenged in recent years by Apple's iPhones and Google's Android devices. Nokia is now moving away from its Symbian operating system on some smartphones in favor of the Windows Phone OS.

Microsoft also announced earlier this year that the Lumia 900 would not be able to upgrade to the Windows Phone 8 OS, due out this fall.

If you have been yearning for a Lumia 900 in cyan, black, white or even the new addition - pink - it looks like now would be a good time to buy.
