Nokia Lumia 900 UK Release Date Influenced By AT&T’s Sales ?

by Mihai Matei on May 2, 2012


AT&T’s Nokia Lumia 900 has been a huge success for both the carrier and the manufacturer and although Nokia has not yet revealed any sales figures, the device has been sold-out in a matter of days after the initial launch and quoting the manufacturer, it exceeded all expectations.

Both Nokia and AT&T led a pretty costly promotional campaign for the device, but it all paid off eventually and the Lumia 900 is still selling like hotcakes.

Now, initial reports indicated that next in line to get the Nokia Lumia outside the US is UK, (and rumors point out that a summer T-Mobile release might happen in the US after the exclusivity with AT&T runs out) so if you reside in the UK and want to get your hands on a Nokia Lumia 900 you’ll be able to do so in May. Join us after the break.

According to the TheVerge, a Nokia spokesman revealed that the company intends on releasing the Nokia Lumia 900 in UK on May 14th, give or take a couple of days.

You may also know that the expected release date for the Nokia Lumia 900 in the UK was April 27, according to Phones4U. The online retailer made the device available for pre-order earlier this month with promises that the device will be delivered by the end of April.

Nevertheless, Phones4U has updated the information on their website and it now displays a May 14th delivery date as well.

You might consider this to be a pushback, but Nokia states they never claimed that the Lumia 900 will see the light of day in UK on April 27.


On the other hand, due to the device’s success in the US, the company claims that their biggest priority right now is to deliver more units for AT&T after which they’ll focus on a UK release, followed by the rest of Europe. In other words, assuming that Nokia’s initial plans were to deliver the Lumia 900 in UK starting April 27th then yes, a May 14th release date is the result of a pushback caused by the success of AT&T’s Nokia Lumia 900.

Keep in mind that according to Nokia, the May 14th launch date is subject to slight changes as well. Until then, we’ll keep an eye out and see how the story develops.

Thanks TheVerge for the heads-up regarding the Nokia Lumia 900 UK release date.
