WPCentral's Mother's Day Gift Guide

It's that time of the year again to celebrate Mother's Day. Here's what to get her in our latest gift-guide.

While it appears there won't be a Magenta Lumia 900 available for Mother's Day that doesn't mean we should forget good old mom. While we are sure many were dead set on getting the magenta Lumia 900 for their mother this weekend, we thought we'd give you a few options to fall back on.

We've reported in the past that AT&T was rumored to be getting a magenta (red, fuchsia, pink etc) Nokia Lumia 900 on Sunday, May 13th right in time for Mother's Day.

Since that report we've had a sighting in a Microsoft Store (since removed) and Nokia's Facebook page (also since removed).

The image above clearly shows once and for all that a magenta Lumia 900 does indeed exist. What's more, those in Finland will evidently have the honors of  being one of the first regions to get their hands on it.

The retail site Gigantti has the phone listed with the SKU NOKLUMIA900MA with a release slated for an unspecified day in, you guessed it, May.

The phone is up for pre-order now but who knows how long it will be up since last we checked, Nokia has not made an official announcement on such a color being offered. Of course knowing that the Lumia 800 comes in that color choice, it's not much of a stretch to see its bigger brother get the red treatment as well.

So AT&T, your move.

We first reported that a Magenta Lumia 900 may be headed to AT&T for a Mother's Day release back on March 27th. Since then we had a sighting of what looks to a bare reddish pink Lumia 900 in a Microsoft Store on April 13th via in-screen advertising (interestingly, we're told that image was replaced with a glossy-white since we ran that story).

Now Nokia themselves seem to be getting in on the Magenta Lumia 900 action as they have it listed as a color option for the device right ont their Facebook page.

Eagle-eyed reader Michael L. noticed it on the social-network's Lumia 900 demo page, which allows you to toy play with a virtual Windows Phone OS. On that page, you have your Matte-Black, Cyan and Glossy-White color choices but low and behold, there is also mysterious and alluring Magenta.

While a reddish hued Lumia 900 would not be an earth-shattering decision, after all the Lumia 800 has that choice, up till now there has not been an announced Magenta variant for the 900-series.

Seeing as AT&T is the premier launch partner for this device and our earlier tip that a Mother's Day version was planned for release (it also falls on a release-day for the carrier), we're liking the odds of this happening come May.

Would you get a magenta Lumia 900 for yourself or a loved one? Hit us up on comments.

Magenta Nokia Lumia 900 pictured for AT&T

We posted a little while ago that there may be a Magenta Lumia 900 for AT&T in the works, specifically a tie-in with Mother's Day which falls on Sunday, May 13th. Sunday's are also AT&T release days.

In a Microsoft store, one of our readers Clyde V. noticed this Lumia 900 emblazoned with the AT&T logo displayed on one of the demo screens advertising the new Nokia phone. Now at first we were cautious as tossing on one of Nokia's skin tight Magenta cases can also cause any 900 to look like that bold red color. But upon closer inspection this really does not seem to sporting a case (we'll let you decide though).

We know the Lumia 800 came in white and a glossy white 900 followed soon thereafter (coming to AT&T on April 22nd). And we know the Lumia 800 comes in Magenta, so a red-pink Lumia 900 seems hardly a stretch for them. Anyone waiting to see what happens?

Thanks, Anon, for the image!

Looks like AT&T is not forgetting their important demographic of Spanish speakers as they're running a new ad for the Lumia 900 featuring Ricardo Arjona. For those of you not familiar, he's a very popular and famous "Guatemalan Grammy Award- and Latin Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter" (thank you, Wikipedia!).

In other words, they landed a fairly be celeb for this ad which seems to show of the strengths of the Lumia 900 fairly well. More importantly, this commerical is targeted for Mother's Day, which is an opportune time to buy mom a $99 Cyan Lumia 900, especially if has Ricardo Arjona serenading her. (We'll stick with flowers, thanks)

Okay, perhaps it's a tad cheesy but to be honest, it's no different than any other smartphone commercial out there and the ladies deserve to have a nice phone too.

So go buy one for mom, she'll finally forgive you for not calling her more often.

Thanks, Jonathan, for the tip
