While Nokia’s Lumia devices may not be going down as well in Europe as they are in the U.S., the Finnish firm is hoping its Lumia 900 can change that. The handset has already become a big success for AT&T in the U.S., and it could do the same for British carriers from next month.
Nokia is targeting May 14 for the Lumia 900’s U.K. launch, according to the company’s U.K. team, who have been speaking to The Verge. The 4.3-inch device will be available in both black and white, and it’ll feature HSPA+ connectivity in place of LTE, which isn’t yet available in the U.K.
Although May 14 may seem like it’s a delay for the Lumia 900 — thanks to that April 27 release date advertised by British retailer Phones4U — Nokia has never actually provided an official launch date for the the U.K. However, it was keen to stress that this date is subject to change, according to The Verge:
Importantly, the company wants to be clear that the phone could be in stores a few days earlier or a few days later, depending on how production and shipping works out between now and then.
In addition to its U.K. plan, Nokia also said that it is still ramping up production of the LTE-equipped Lumia 900 for AT&T. Demand for the device has “exceeded” Nokia’s expectations in the U.S., and it is doing all it can to produce enough handsets to meet it.
Are you looking forward to a (possible) Lumia 900 launch in the U.K. next month?
