Nokia Lumia 900
Have you heard about Nokia Lumia 900?? Follow this article..
If you’re familiar with the Nokia Lumia 800, you’ll get a sense for how this device feels. It is, essentially, a bigger version of that phone. The 3.7-inch screen is superseded by a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, but the build is almost exactly the same. The iPod nano-inspired industrial design is still present, with an attractive non-painted polycarbonate unibody integrating well with the Gorilla Glass display.
For those who missed the official announcement, we should note that the Nokia Lumia 900 would arrive on shelves with a 1.4 GHz single-core application processor inside, as well as with a 4.3-inch touchscreen display with Corning Gorilla Glass, capable of delivering an 800 x 480 pixels resolution.
Nokia packed the new device with an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with the ability to record 720p videos, as well as with a 1-megapixel camera on the front for video calling.
The Nokia Lumia 900 will hit shelves with 512 MB of RAM to complement the Qualcomm APQ8055 + MDM9200 (WCDMA) CPU, as well as with 14.5 GB of mass memory that cannot be expanded using MicroSD memory cards. However, users will benefit from access to SkyDrive cloud storage.

A lot had to happen for gigantic companies Nokia and Microsoft to become plucky underdogs in the smartphone field, but the combined effort to recapture former glories was hugely evident with the launch of the recent Nokia Lumia 800, which was one of the most refreshing handsets we’ve seen in a while. Next up is the Nokia Lumia 900.
The success of the Windows Phone platform is good for the smartphone industry, offering a clear way out from the Android or Apple choice users are currently faced with and Nokia is doing a lot of the leg work to make this a reality, placing its very future existence in the hands of Windows Phone.
The Nokia Lumia 900 also arrives with similar matte black and the gorgeous cyan blue casings, with the prospect of more colours arriving once the device is launched.
There are further similarities with the Lumia 800 in the placing of the neatly-integrated, unobtrusive hard camera and volume keys, on the right edge of the device and the microUSB charging port and headphone jack at the foot of the device.
There are differences, aside from the size. The Nokia Lumia 900 brings a 1-megapixel front facing camera for 4G video conferencing and a new wide angle lens on the back of the device.
Overall, this is one of the finer examples of smartphone design in recent years and has a really youthful look and feel – especially the blue model. Nokia has always made solid, reliable hardware but has lacked engaging software in recent years. Enter Windows Phone.
Nokia Lumia 900: Features
Like its older, yet smaller, sibling the Lumia 900 brings Windows Mobile 7.5, or Mango as its known in the common tongue. The upgrade in mid-2011 was a massive boon to the fledgling Windows Phone platform offering indications that reaching its obvious potential was in sight. The Mango update brought 250 new features including IE9, threaded messages, improved Xbox LIVE integration, multi-tasking and improved live tiles allowing more information to be displayed on the homescreen, as found on the HTC Titan.
The native Windows Phone operating system really shines on Nokia’s devices. We enjoyed the limited time we were given browsing through the interface. Nokia reps were pretty adamant that we weren’t able to browse through apps as the final software build wasn’t complete.
In terms of other features on the device, Nokia continues its long tradition of offering massively well-specced cameras on its smartphones. The rear facing camera boasts Carl Zeiss Tessar optics (as expected). As we mentioned above, the Lumia 900 boasts a wide-angle lens, enabling you to capture more within the frame. The front-facing camera is also a new edition. HD video is present at 720p 30fps resolution.
Other than the size increase, 4G LTE internet is the main upgrade on show, although on the show floor at CES we were unable to test for increased speeds. In terms of other connectivity there’s Wi-Fi, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.1 and GPS.
Pricing & Availability
Nokia Lumia 900 will be exclusively available on AT&T in US in the next couple of months, with March 18th being tipped as the expected launch date by well known Microsoft enthusiast Mary Jo Foley. No official word on pricing or International availability yet.
This coming year is a big one for both Microsoft and Nokia. The two joined forces during 2011 with the aim of a mutually beneficial partnership. Microsoft needed a hardware partner it could push around, and Nokia needed a current mobile OS to adorn its impressive hardware. Just how that will pan out through the next twelve months could well prove to be very important for both parties.
We are expecting great things to come of the Windows Phone 7 platform though 2012, and we certainly hope Microsoft can give Apple and Google a run for their money in the smartphone arena. More competition helps all of us, and with RIM fading away, Microsoft needs to take up the reigns and keep the two runaway leaders honest.
