It’s always an entertaining thing to watch a new device launch, especially one the carrier themselves claim will top anything they’ve done before -- including the iPhone. So why in the world did AT&T choose to launch their new flagship Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 900, on a date when most of their stores were closed?
Even though the iPhone is our handset of choice, we admit to being intrigued by Microsoft’s mobile underdog, Windows Phone. Also, everyone likes a comeback story, and both Redmond and Nokia sure could use one. Judging from early reviews, AT&T’s Lumia 900 may not quite be the device to do it.
The weekend is here, and with comes the final installment of our daily recap for the month of March. But hey, don’t be sad or blue -- there will be plenty more tech news coming on Monday, when we jump head first into the month of April and see what new and delightful surprises the spring season might bring us. In the meantime, sit back and ride out the rest of March by catching up on the news for Friday, March 30, 2012.
We may be Apple fans, but we can still appreciate when competitors bring their best game to the table. Microsoft and Nokia are betting the farm with the new AT&T-branded Lumia 900, which the carrier seems to think will have a bigger launch than even the iPhone. We’re hoping that’s a misquote, but we won’t have long to wait -- the Lumia 900 will hits stores on April 8. Since you’re sitting at home plotting which AT&T store will have the shortest lines on that day, why not catch up on the day’s news for Wednesday, March 28, 2012…?
March is winding to a close and our attention turns to April and beyond, wondering what exactly Apple might have up their sleeves for us in the coming months. Meanwhile, competitors like Nokia and HTC are ramping up their Windows Phone initiative with two highly anticipated devices arriving on the same day (!?!) as the kingpins of the cell phone market duke it out over a proposed “micro-SIM” standard that promises to shrink our handsets even further. If you missed today’s news, sit back and soak in what’s happening on this Monday, March 26, 2012.
