Nokia Lumia 900 Priced and Dated For a May Landing in the UK

By Sam Gibbs on at

Nokia’s new flagship Windows Phone, the Lumia 900, is apparently on its way to the UK for May, and while pre-orders are already live, there’s a bit of squabbling about how much it’ll cost.

According to Clove it’ll set you back £528 off network, which is a bit pricey if you ask me. However, Unlocked Mobiles, another online phone retailer, has the new Nokia up for £446, some £82 cheaper. Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that the Lumia 900 will land in May, not June as previously rumoured, with a pre-register page that's staying up this time.

At under £450 off-network, the Lumia 900 might be worth a punt. But if it’s up around the £500+ range, it’s in the ballpark of the likes of Apple, and I have a feeling the iPhone will win out on that one.

Still, most people buy their phones on-network from a carrier – let’s hope Nokia doesn’t price the Lumia 900 out of even their range like it did the Lumia 800, and shoot itself in the foot again.
