In a couple of weeks, AT&T will begin selling the highly-hyped and fairly well anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Smartphone.  And the really big news is the price point: $99 dollars with the obligatory two-year contract.  It’s 4G, has an 8MP camera and 16Gig of storage, which is a lot of features for $99 bucks, but, should you buy it?  While it certainly is cheap enough, consider this.  If you’re an iDevice user, you know iPad, Mac, iPod, etc, then you should get an iPhone.  If you’re a heavy Google user, gmail, Google docs, Google apps for business, then an Android phone is the way to go.  However, it you are a heavy Windows user who spends your day in Microsoft Office – the new windows phone operating system make lots of sense.  Why is the new Nokia Lumia 900 going to be so cheap? That’s easy, AT&T, Nokia and Microsoft want you buy as many of them as they can make.
