Nokia Lumia 900 Unveiled

Nokia Lumia 900 Unveiled

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop finally unveiled the long rumored Nokia Lumia 900 at a press conference on the eve of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The beautifully designed flagship Windows Phone 7-based device is the first of Nokia’s WP7 smartphones to feature LTE 4G connectivity and sports the largest display ever seen on a Nokia WP7 device - an expansive 4.2-inch AMOLED ClearBlack Display.

The Lumia 900 is Nokia’s third Lumia-branded device. It echoes the striking polycarbonate unibody design of the Lumia 800 (also seen on the similarly-shaped Nokia N9) but sports a bigger screen, a thinner profile (11.5mm) and a more powerful 1.4GHz processor.

The 16GB device runs on the Mango + LTE build of Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7.5 operating system and has an enhanced 8MP camera, a Carl Zeiss lens, a dual LED flash, and features 720p/30fps video recording. Nokia has also added a second 1MP camera up front for video conferencing.

The handset is destined for the US - a country in which Nokia’s market share has slid over the last few years. US consumers have eagerly switched from Nokia’s once-popular feature phones to Apple’s iPhone and Google’s Android smartphones in search of advanced features, apps and functionality.

However, the distinctive design of Nokia’s Lumia 900, coupled with Microsoft’s WP7 operating system and and advanced smartphone-like LTE connectivity, may help the company to improve its market share in the US.

The Nokia Lumia 900 will initially be sold exclusively through US carrier AT&T. Pricing has not been announced but the phone is expected to arrive in the "coming months."
