The Nokia Lumia 900 is coming to Rogers in Canada:
The second bullet link above is the following page:
It looks as though we would have to sign a contract in order to “pre-order” (whoever thought of using the prefix “pre” should be taught a grammar lesson or four :P ) the Lumia 900.
We have not signed a cellular contract for any Smartphone that we have had for quite a few years now.
We prefer to purchase our phones outright on a Month-To-Month contract.
We do so because it gives us the flexibility to move about as we please. It may be a bit more costly in up-front fees but in the long run it gives us the ability to be “mobile” with our cellular needs which is one of the things the carriers _don’t_ want. They want us locked in for the entire three years.
When the Lumia 900 comes available on Rogers we will be transferring my cell number to the 900 and purchasing one outright.
Thus, when the next new Windows Phone comes out that has more than 16GB of RAM in it we will be _jumping_ on it ASAP!
