Nokia Cuts U.S. Price of Flagship Phone in Half

John D. Stoll, reporting for the WSJ:

The price of Nokia Corp.’s flagship Lumia 900 Windows phone has been cut in half in the critical U.S. market, a little more than three months after the launch of the smartphone at AT&T Inc. stores.

“This move is a normal strategy that is put in place during the life cycle of most phones,” Nokia spokesman Doug Dawson said in an email. It “allows a broader consumer base to buy this flagship device at a more accessible price.”

Totally normal. Nothing to see here. Everything is great.
