The Lumia 900 is an eagerly anticipated smartphone which is going to be runningWindows Phone 7. This device is being seen as the flagship handset for Nokia to hopefully get them back into the smartphone market where they’ve been suffering heavily for the last few years.
It appears that Microsoft Stores in the US are now accepting a $25 deposit to secure one of the first handsets. They are offering the Lumia 900 in either black or white, however we still haven’t heard on a specific price or an actual release date for the device. Some reports have suggested that Microsoft may price it aggressively at $100 while others are saying it will probably be around the $150 – $200 mark. Sales staff in the stores are expecting the devices to arrive at some stage during the second half of March.
When the Lumia 900 is released in the US, it will be exclusive to AT&T and Nokia’s first 4G LTE phone.It sports a huge 4.3-inch display, a polycarbonate body in white or black (possibly cyan as well), a 1.4-gigahertz Qualcomm single-core processor, 512 megabytes of RAM, 16 gigabytes of built-in storage, 8-megapixel/720p video rear camera and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. It’s quite a feature packed phone and is certainly going to be a serious competitor to the likes of the iPhone 4s and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Nokia really need it to make an impact in the smartphone world, they are struggling big time at the moment and are pretty much relying on this and a few other devices to get people excited by Nokia again.
Here we have a quick little hands-on video for the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone, recently announced by Nokia at CES 2012. The Lumia 900 is Nokia’s first LTE phone, slated to be released on AT&T’s 4G network in the US.
