[Updated] Report: Nokia Lumia 900 launching mid-March?

BGR is reporting that AT&T is set to launch the Lumia 900 — Nokia’s flagship 4G LTE Windows Phone — on March 18 at a price of $99.99 with a two-year contract.

BGR, which says it got this information from “a portion of AT&T’s 2012 roadmap from a trusted source,” notes that that date could change since the phone “hasn’t yet received technical acceptance.”

The heads of Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T announced the Lumia 900 at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this month. At the time, Nokia chief exec Stephen Elop wouldn’t give specifics on launch date or price, saying only that the handset would be on U.S. store shelves sometime in the next few months.

Here’s the full BGR post.

[Update 1:17 p.m.: BGR has more from the AT&T roadmap it says it got its hands on. The HTC Titan II — also a 4G LTE Windows Phone on AT&T — is supposed to launch on the same day as the Nokia Lumia 900 — March 18. BGR reports that the Titan II will go for $199.99 with a two-year contract.]
