That date is certainly not set in stone and there is admittedly a note stating that the date is subject to change, but in any case we know the handset isn't at all far away from launching now.

If pre-ordering is the chosen means for purchase, the phone can be secured SIM-free and unlocked at at £479.99 (about $780 US / 590 Euro).

Nokia's sleek 4.3-inch Lumia 900 has proven to be quite the popular choice with strong initial sales post its U.S. launch in early April. It's expected that the success of the phone will branch out into other markets across the globe in weeks to come. With that said, we're still waiting on confirmation from Nokia as to which other countries are lined up to receive it.

The Lumia 900 was launched in several color choices, including Black, Cyan and White. There is talk of a Magenta one arriving in the not too distant future as well, but this is yet to be confirmed.
