The price is half it was before, thus making the widely advertised Nokia smartphone even more desirable.
The Microsoft powered device is a Windows Phone with 1.4Ghz Snapdraggon processor (no dual core unfortunatelly). Lumia 900 is compatible with 4G connectivity. Nokia is currently the top Windows Phone manufacturer. By adding the cheapest powerful smartphone with Windows on its portfolio Nokia will surely attract more buyers.
Although now Nokia is truly a top Windows Phone manufacturer it still has a long way to go until its smartphones become as popular as phones running iOS and Android.
