AT&T (T +0.9%) announces Nokia's (NOK +0.8%) Lumia 900 will go on sale in the U.S. on April 8 for $99.99. There's much at stake in the launch: NOK needs a buzz-worthy hit product in the U.S., where it has struggled; T hopes the LTE-capable smartphone will spark interest in its 4G network; Microsoft (MSFT +1.2%) needs legitimacy for the Windows Phone platform.
