When will the Lumia 900 launch in South Africa?

In short, not anytime soon. Nokia has not even confirmed a release date for the US, and that’s their target market. During’s hands on with the Lumia 900, he noted that: “When it comes to firmware, we weren’t given the luxury of playing much with the handset since it was an early prototype model that is nowhere near its final status.

This implies one of two possibilities: Either we’ll get the Lumia 710 & 800 sometime in the near future, and we’ll get the Lumia 900 by I guess July/August. The other possibility is that all of the above will launch at the same time, nl. in July/August. Hopefully it’s not the latter and we’ll be able to get a taste of the 710 & 800 before the end of Feb.
