We used the Strategy Analytics PriceTRAX online database tool to examine the history of price drops in the US market. It appears that Nokia’s Lumia 900 has held its launch price as long or longer than all of its peers.
We plotted PriceTRAX data for up-front handset prices for comparable large screen Windows Phone 7.5 and the Samsung Galaxy S2. The charts show pricing from launch and appears to demonstrate that it is quite normal for smartphone up-front prices to decline in the first 3 months after launch.
