Finally, the much-awaited Nokia Lumia 900 was officially revealed at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2012 by Nokia CEO, Mr. Stephen Elop. It is the third phone in the Lumia portfolio following Lumia 700 and the recently released Lumia 710 for T-Mobile, but the phone is a US-only product at the moment. The phone is really superior in features and functionality to the previous Lumia 800.
Nokia Lumia 900 Review
Nokia Lumia 900 clear black AMOLED display is very similar to that of Lumia 800, though the screen size has increased. The screen of the new Lumia 900 is 4.3 inches and is the largest of all Lumia devices so far. However, the phone resolution is still the same with that of Lumia 800. This is probably because Microsoft still restricts Windows Phone displays to 800×480 pixels in resolution.
Moreover, the built of Lumia 900 strongly suggests a very durable phone, and the surface appears very scratch-tolerant. The phone features a polycarbonate unibody frame with very impressive plastic body and is very compact in design.
In addition, the Lumia 900 design is very simple with seam-free sides. The phone comes with two sockets; one is for connecting headphones, while the other is a microUSB for data transfer and charging the phone.
Nokia Lumia 900 Specifications
Nokia Lumia 900 comes with 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, runs on 512MB RAM, and rocks a 16GB internal storage space. It weighs only 160g with a volume space of 90cc and dimensions of 127.8×68.5×11.5mm.
One of the most alluring features of Lumia 900 is the 8MP Carl Zeiss rear camera with dual LED flash plus a 1MP front-facing camera for video calling. The large aperture (F2.2) and wide angle focal length (28mm) of the rear camera enables high quality and uncropped images even in low-light conditions.
Moreover, Lumia 900 has impressed us with very long battery backup with the 1840 mAh battery. This provides users with seven hours of talk time and about 300 hours on standby. Some of the other important features of the Lumia 900 include support for Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, USB 2.0 high-speed, Wi-Fi and A-GPS.
The phone rocks Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) and features AT&T’s 4G LTE connectivity. As said earlier, it comes with a 4.3-inch AMOLED display with 800×480 pixels in resolution.
All in all, Nokia Lumia 900 is designed for a rich media experience with the long battery life and bigger screen plus powerful cameras. Unfortunately, there is no information yet as regards the pricing of the phone.
