Nokia offers Lumia 900 free in data bug mea culpa

Nokia has slashed its Lumia 900 Windows Phone flagship to free on AT&T, a temporary promotion to apologize to customers for a data connectivity glitch in early models.

Nokia Lumia 900 review

Nokia Lumia 900 review

Over the last year Nokia's had something of a tumultuous time in the mobile industry.

Gadget bloggers tend to share a few key traits, and one of those is an inability to resist high-end hardware. Super-fast processors, hi-res screens and next generation features get our blood rising.
