Embarrassing – Nokia cut the price of flagship Lumia 900 to $50

This is so sad for so many reasons. Not even sure where to begin.

AT&T and Nokia have decided to drop the price of the Nokia Lumia 900 to $49.99 from $99.99 for a 2 year contract.

So let me get this straight…

  1. We are in July 2012
  2. New Windows Phone 8 units may be out by October 2012
  3. The Lumia 900 will be old technology at that point

Knowing those three things, you want people to sign a 2 year contract for this phone?

WHY?

As a consumer, if you did buy a phone now and in September found out that your phone was old, slower technology, how would you feel?

For Microsoft, AT&T and Nokia, this has been a PR, Branding and Strategy disaster.

I wonder if consumers are just being driven to Android and Apple en masse because the Lumia value proposition…well has no value.

Would you buy a Lumia 900?
