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…
- We are in July 2012
- New Windows Phone 8 units may be out by October 2012
- 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?
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?
