Nokia Lumia 900

Here’s some not so good news for those of you who are keen to get your hands on the latest piece of hardware spawned by Nokia and Microsoft.

The Windows Phone toting Lumia 900 has been out in the US for a while now, although the handset was expected to come out at the end of this month in the UK. However, it seems that now isn’t the case.

According to a report on V3.co.uk, the Lumia 900 has been pushed back two weeks, with its new arrival date being May 14th.

A Nokia spokesman said: “The Lumia 900 is now expected to be available from Phones4U around May 14.”

The firm claimed that “overwhelming demand” in the US had caused the delay, and had a knock-on effect on the UK launch date. However, an update to V3.co.uk’s report, issued after Nokia got in touch with the tech site, noted that there never was an official UK release date stipulated. Not beyond the second quarter, anyway.

Even so, it was widely expected to be coming at the end of the month, but now you’ll have to wait a bit longer.

The Lumia 900 is very much built along the lines of the Lumia 800, but with a bigger 4.3 inch display, and some other upgrades such as 4G (not much use in the UK right now, of course).
