Forget pretty in pink. How about fiery magenta for the color of your next Nokia phone? AT&T announced today that it will release a version of the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows phone in a bright "pink" shade, starting July 15.

The magenta Lumia 900 joins the black, cyan, and white versions of the phone. Customers will be able to buy the raspberry-colored handset online for $99.

The Lumia 900 will receive the Windows Phone 7.8 update -- which will include a new start screen and flip-to-silence -- as well as access to some Nokia extras like additional camera apps and DLNA streaming support.

However, the Lumia and other Windows phones won't be upgradeable to Windows Phone 8 come fall, an update that will make dual-core Windows phones with HD screens possible.

Lumia owners will also be able to download the Zynga games Words with Friends and Draw Something in the fall, 60 days before other Windows phones.
