Smartphone buyers eager to preorder the Nokia Lumia 900 may have missed their window of opportunity.
Microsoft has shut down the preorder deal for the Windows Phone-based 900, a company spokesman confirmed to CNET today. No specific reason was given as to why the offer was stopped after only one week. But the rep said that its Microsoft Stores do continually update such offers.
Unveiled earlier this month, the preorder deal invited buyers to lay down a $25 down payment to reserve the phone in advance of its March 18 debut. The only catch was that customers would've needed to pick up the phone in person at any of Microsoft's 14 U.S. retail locations, a hefty trip if the closest store is several hundred miles away.
