Will Telstra skip Nokia’s Lumia 900?
blog Australian Windows Phone blog WPDownUnder has stated that it is its “firm opinion” that Telstra will not sell Nokia’s flagship Lumia 900 handset slated to launch in Australia tonight, with the handset reported to be an exclusive to the nation’s number two telco Optus. The publication reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
“We expect the Lumia 900 will be exclusively announced on the OPTUS network for launch … We are of the firm opinion that TELSTRA will not range the Lumia 900. On the surface, it appears their focus is in pushing 4G 1800Mhz capacity and relieving some of the arising 3G 850Mhz congestion issues they have seen”
Like similar site Ausdroid, WPDownUnder is usually right in its predictions about the availability of phones in its speciality area in Australia. Personally, I think it would be incredibly idiotic of Telstra not to range the Lumia 900; I know of quite a few readers who are waiting with great interest for the device to launch in Australia, and I expect it to sell very well. Telstra was the launch partner for Windows Phone 7 in Australia, probably has the only network which can truly do justice to the Lumia 800′s capabilities, and should definitely be on board for this launch.
One possibility is that Telstra will wait for a 4G version of a top of the line Nokia model before it jumps on board again with the Finnish company. We’ve been told that the version of the Lumia 900 that will sell in Australia will not do 4G through Telstra or Optus (just dual-channel HSDPA+), so perhaps Telstra isn’t interested in it on those grounds. Occasionally in the past (and now with the HTC One series), Telstra has lagged behind its rivals when it comes to big launches, only to launch an updated version of the same smartphone with faster network access speeds later on. This could well be the case when it comes to Nokia. We’ll know more after Nokia’s swanky launch event tonight.
Update: WPDownUnder was pretty much right — see Gizmodo’s story on the launch last night.
