You do understand that I was being halfway serious and halfway not, right?

Will Apple be hurting because of this? No.

Could it potentially hurt Apple's iPhone sales on AT&T? Yes.

Could it kick start Nokia again and potentially lead to some stiff competition in the smartphone world? Absolutely!


Gotta look at this from all of the angles. This is a pretty nice phone that Nokia is allowing people to take home for free (plus contract). When was the last time Apple had a similar deal, let alone a deal like this on a brand new phone that is selling very well? Like... never? rolleyes.gif

Wow must be selling great.

Phone sucks and isn't selling good so they have to make it free.

Link? The only criticisms I have seen have been limited and definitely not enough to qualify the phone as 'subpar'. Many of the criticisms were also applicable to all smart phones in general...

Also, from what I've read ATT only has an exclusivity deal for a month or two and then it should start jumping to new carriers.

Its funny that you missed the obvious satire in his post.

Nokia shipped a faulty product. So now they are giving it away for free to make up for their mistake.

Apple shipped a faulty product, "you're holding it wrong" anybody? and said, you're holding it wrong, and only after being ridiculed by every media outlet did they decide to give away free $1 pieces of silicon.

Obviously the hidden meaning you failed to grasp is Nokia has PR that is in the vicinity of 2987 times better than Apple/

Yes, Link please. I have yet to come across what would be deemed as a 'subpar' review. Amazon customer reviews are at 4.7/5.

This is awesome news and a great example of the commitment level Nokia and Microsoft have to their customers and OS. Wish it lasted into June when my wife and I qualify for an upgrade.doh.gif

ATT.com reviews are at 4.7. Pretty bad imo.

On a side note, I dont see a rebate online at ATT.

cnet: 4/5 stars

techspot: (Conclusion: "It's hard to understate how impressed I am with the Nokia Lumia 900...")

engadget: (With the careful cultivation of a cultish, fashion-conscious consumer following, however, this could very well be Nokia's greatest hit.)

hothardware:
(Recommended award, 4/5 stars)

phonearena: (...it’s sure to stand head above water over the competition. Ultimately, its pricing is what makes the Nokia Lumia 900 so agreeable over other things.)



I don't know dude. Based on the first few reviews on Google, I'd say it's quite a bit better than "subpar." rolleyes.gif All of those reviews came off as generally positive. I stopped after the 2nd page on Google. I'm sure I could keep going for a while.

User reviews will dicate how good this product is, but then again, there are tons of people that absolutely hate the iPhone, and it still seems to be doing alright.
