[DT] AT&T Says Lumia 900 Launch Will Blow Away the Every iPhone Launch Yet

For now AT&T is the clear leader of the Windows Phone charge.

But as happened with Sprint's Android pickup and AT&T's iPhone pickup, don't be surprised if Verizon Wireless jumps on the Windows Phone bandwagon in a big way this year or next.

Suddenly Windows Phone has gone pencil pushing shy nerd to the cool new kid in town. It's hard to say exactly how far it will rise, but it's safe to say that the Lumia 900 launch will be the first of its kind for Windows Phone.

Interesting, definitely.. biggrin.gif

Even though I hate Apple and wish that this would happen, it's not going to.

As much as I hate Apple there is no denying they are king of advertising and launches.... Nokia will not beat them tbh...

Customers don't act rationally so I don't think this will really win against iPhone. People will buy anything that has name Apple, regardless of the quality of product.

We previously covered how the Lumia 900 will be given "hero status" in the AT&T mobile arsenal. AT&T has told us that we can expect to see banners in windows of AT&T stores and Windows Phone walls featuring the TITAN II and Lumia 900. In a nutshell, we were told AT&T stores are going to look like Nokia stores.

Anyone who thinks they can beat apple is retarded or is really going to beat apple. No one ever beats apple. Sad, but true.

Great facts, solid statistics, 10/10 future prediction skills, would read again.

This just in: AT&T will say anything if it gets them attention.

I'm still getting a lumia when my contract is up. Unless the iphone 5 is cheap.

But Microsoft has already crushed Apple to within two inches of life. Wasn't it a Microsoft loan that kept Apple afloat long enough to even be where they are now?

I'm not saying this is going to beat the Iphone all I'm saying is that no company stays on top forever and I fully believe Apple will be beaten one day. I mean depending on how you look at it now isn't Androids marketshare much higher then the Iphones?

Again I'm not saying this will do it. In fact I don't think the WP7's are that interesting at all but something someday will do it. It's just the way things go.

Apple sold 4 million 4s's in a weekend. If this thing comes close to 4 million in a month I'll be amazed. When was the last time Nokia had a launch that big? When was the last time any phone company had a launch that big? Oh last October. Apple. I'm not saying I love apple to death or anything, I'm just saying that apple has more market domination than any other Manufacturer.... Seriously they are the most valuable company on the planet and most likely more powerful than most governments. Scary really.
