Carphone Warehouse has quietly taken down a product page for the Nokia Lumia 900, having sent rumours about a UK release into overdrive earlier this week.
The high street retailer all-but-confirmed the handset’s arrival to our shores when it posted a page for punters to register their interest, marked with a ‘”June 2012” UK availability date, something that seemed unlikely when it was announced as an exclusive to US carrier AT&T at the CES expo.
However, those hopes of getting our grubby mitts on Nokia’s latest, greatest have now been cruelly dashed as the page was yanked with no explanation forthcoming as to whether it was a simple mistake or a premature announcement.
Worse yet, after the folk over at T3 got in touch with Nokia, it said it had “no knowledge” about the Lumia 900 coming to the UK.
Our best guess is that the handset was either prematurely announced, or that Nokia has something even better planned for us – as in the Nokia Lumia 910 – which industry analyst Eldar Murtazin claims will land in Europe sometime in May.
This is said to up the ante on the Lumia 900 with a 12-megapixel snapper and possibly a bigger screen, too. Whether it’s just another rumour, though, is something we’re likely to find out at next month’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. So stay tuned.
