Last month, Nokia unveiled to the world the first LTE-capable Windows Phone device in its offer, none other than the Nokia Lumia 900.

The smartphone is set to arrive in the United States exclusively on the airwaves of wireless carrier AT&T, and is rumored to become available sometime in March.

However, it appears that Microsoft stores are already accepting pre-orders for the device.

A recent article on WMPoweruser claims that Microsoft Brick & Mortar retail stores in US are now offering users the possibility to reserve Lumia 900 units for when it should be put up for sale.

Apparently, Microsoft is offering two options when it comes to the phone’s color, namely Cyan and Black.

One thing that users cannot opt in or out of is to pay $25 to have the smartphone reserved for them for the launch date.

Unfortunately, no specific details on the release date, nor on the price tag the handset might feature when made available, were unveiled.

Previous rumors suggested that AT&T customers would be able to purchase the new device starting with March 18th for $99 with the signing of a two-year contract agreement.

Those who would like to order one Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone in advance should take a look at this list of Microsoft store locations that are accepting pre-orders at the moment.

For those out of the loop, we should note that Nokia’s Lumia 900 smartphone was announced with a large 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, and with a Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon 1.4GHz application processor inside.

The handset also sports 16GB of internal memory, along with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for HD video recording.

The phone’s specifications list also includes WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, in addition to LTE and 3G capabilities, GPS receiver, Stereo FM radio with RDS, accelerometer, gyro sensor, proximity sensor, compass, and the like.
