Nokia Lumia 900 Available At Amazon For $0.01

I know you’d say that today is April Fools and this is just a stupid prank. To be honest that’s what I thought, too, when I checked the Amazon price for Nokia Lumia 900.

It looks like Amazon might have listed Nokia Lumia 900 at a price of only $0.01. Early rumors indicated that Lumia 900 will arrive at AT&T on April 9th for $99.99 on a two year contract, but Amazon already has it available for pre-order with a price tag of 1 cent.

Lumia 900 is the flagship of the Nokia’s Windows Phone 7.5 Mango-powered line up and we thought that purchasing it for $99.99 was a bargain, but now Amazon comes in, almost giving it away for free. The Amazon Nokia Lumia 900 page specifies that the smartphone will be shipped for free in two days and that the special Amazon discount is applied only if certain requirements are met.

After a brief inspection I discovered that all you have to do is activate a new or extend an existing contract with AT&T, then  maintain the service for at least 181 days, or else Amazon will charge you $250 plus taxes.

Nokia Lumia 900 was first introduced in January 2011 at CES 2012 event in Las Vegas and it’s the most powerful device of Nokia’s Windows Phone Mango line-up. The Lumia 900 model introduced at the Las Vegas-based event is the US version which comes with 4G LTE support. The global Nokia Lumia 900 was introduced one month later at Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.

Lumia 900 sports a 4.3-inch AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass coating and Nokia Clear Black technology, a single-core 1.4 GHz Scorpion Snapdragon chipset, 512 MB of RAM, 16 GB of internal flash storage and 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus, dual-LED flash and support for 720p HD video recording.

When it comes to connectivity Nokia Lumia 900 features WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1, microUSB 2.0, NFC and support for 4G networks.

So, what are you waiting for? With such technical specifications and with Microsoft’s mobile operating system on board, $0.01 is a bargain. Anyway, don’t forget to let us know if you managed to pre-order the Nokia Lumia 900 at 1 cent from Amazon.

UPDATE: I’ve told you to hurry up, didn’t I? Amazon just changed the price of Nokia Lumia 900 to $49.99. Even so, it’s a small price to pay for a device like Nokia’s WP flagship.
