On Monday, April 9, Microsoft was glad to announce that the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II powered by Windows Phone became available for purchase in the US. These are the first smartphones powered by Windows Phone on AT&T’s 4G LTE (long-term evolution) network, which is quite a speedy network.

“The Lumia 900 is a great testament to the hard work and energy of both Microsoft and Nokia. We’re very proud of what we’ve built together in a little more than a year: it’s powerful, yet also beautiful to look at and hold,” commented Corporate Vice President of the Windows Phone Division, Terry Myerson.

Executive VP of Smart Devices with Nokia, Jo Harlow, added the this is a major milestone for Nokia’s partnership with Microsoft and that the Lumia 900 is meant for the user who wants something that looks and feels different and has a large screen and rich content experience to offer.

To show users how efficient the new Windows Phone devices are, Microsoft set up Free-Time Machines (FTMs) across the country; the FTMs showcase how efficient smartphones can help people save time.

“For the first time, artful engineering and design is merging with AT&T’s lightning-fast 4G LTE network, resulting in a smartphone that can help people get everyday tasks done faster,” said Terry Myerson, corporate vice president, Windows Phone, Microsoft. “The value of speed in a smartphone comes down to this: How can we save you time on the stuff that matters? The introduction of Free-Time Machines is a way to show people how Windows Phones can put a little time back in their day.”

If you want to, you can purchase a Nokia Lumia 900 online or from AT&T or Microsoft stores across the US. Or you could wait for a bit and perhaps you will get one for free. You see, Microsoft is running a competition and the prize is a shiny new Nokia Lumia 900. Here’s what you have to do to take part in the competition and have the chance to win a Windows Phone-powered smartphone:
  • Sign into your Pinterest account. Set one up if you don’t have one, then sign into it.
  • Take this Nokia Lumia 900 shot, re-pin it, and come up with a board that depicts what you would do if you had more free time on your hands.
  • Take the link to the board you created and share it in the comments section on the Windows Phone Blog here.
Please note that the contest is open to US residents only and that it ends on April 14. If you want to check out the official rules, they’re available on SkyDrive here.

And about the Free-Time Machines (FTMs) machines presented above. US residents can win a Hawaiian Vacation or one of more than 20,000 instant prizes by taking part in the Free-Time Machine Instant Win Promotion.
