We have talked a lot about the Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone here at CDW, and news has come to us that Phones 4U will be the first European retailer to stock it!
Further to the US Nokia Lumia 900 launch event, the product has already proven to be an overwhelming success and with the continuing high demand for Nokia’s latest Lumia smartphones, the Lumia 900 will now launch in the UK at Phones 4u on 14th May.
Due to overwhelming demand for the Lumia 900 in the US having a small knock-on effect on product availability in the UK, those who were the first to preorder their Lumia 900* from Phones 4u will receive a set of Nokia Purity by Monster in-ear headphones in addition to their free Nokia Play 360 wireless speaker when the Lumia 900 now launches on the 14th May.
So what do you think of the Lumia 900? Are you going to buy one?

We have talked a few times about the Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone here at CDW, and Nokia have just released a bug fix that addresses an issues lost data connectivity.
This is what Nokia posted:
A little while after the Lumia 900 went on sale, we discovered a software issue that can sometimes lead to lost data connectivity. This issue is purely in the phone’s software, and isn’t related to the phone hardware or the network itself.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and as a gesture of goodwill, we are offering a $100 AT&T bill credit to everyone who has already purchased a Nokia Lumia 900 or who will purchase one before April 21st.
Nokia are suggested that you can either update your Lumia 900, or “Exchange your phone for a new Nokia Lumia 900 at any AT&T store from now until April 21.”
