I'm really not sure how valid this info is or not but I've just received the following press release that British "phones 4u" confirmed it will be the first European retailer to range the eagerly anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone. Further to the US Nokia Lumia 900 launch event, the product has already proven to be an overwhelming success and with the continuing high demand for Nokia's latest Lumia smartphones, the Lumia 900 will now launch, a little bit delayed, in the UK at Phones 4u on 14th May. Nokia's third Lumia smartphone builds on the range's sleek, attention grabbing design and rich social and Internet experience.
However, due to overwhelming demand for the Lumia 900 in the US, it has a small knock-on effect on product availability in the UK. Therefore, those who were the first to preorder their Lumia 900 from Phones 4u (customers who pre-ordered the Nokia Lumia 900 from the Phones 4u website on or before 16th April 2012), will also receive a set of Nokia Purity by Monster in-ear headphones in addition to their free Nokia Play 360 wireless speaker when the Lumia 900 now launches on the 14th May.
As most of you know already, the Windows Phone 7.5-powered Nokia Lumia 900 features a 4.3" AMOLED ClearBlack Display for rich, bright images and Nokia's highest capacity battery yet, making it the perfect smartphone for enjoying media and entertainment on the move all day long. The primary 8 megapixel camera on the Nokia Lumia 900 has exclusive Carl Zeiss optics, a large aperture for improved performance in low light conditions and wide angle focal length for capturing full 16:9 images. Furthermore it's the first Lumia phone to feature a front-facing 1 megapixel HD camera, with large aperture and wide-angle lens for sharp, bright images and video calling.
Unfortunately, it looks like that the Lumia 900 isn't available without a contract from from phones4u, therefore it's not an option for non-Brits to order it from them nor is it an option if you are already on contract.
