Remember when Nokia first announced the Nokia Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 a few months ago, being the first Windows Phone powered devices from the Finnish phone manufacturer? Many of us living Stateside were complaining and wondering just how come Nokia did not roll out those phones here first, but concentrated on Europe and Asia instead. Well, here is a phone that is born and bred from Nokia’s stables that will cater to the good ol’ US of A – the Nokia Lumia 900. This puppy was specially developed for AT&T, and it will offer a larger screen, faster processor and support for the fastest mobile data transfers available to date.
The Nokia Lumia 900 will let you (theoretically) enjoy data downloads up to 50Mbps on AT&T’s 4G LTE network, but I am not quite sure just how real world performance would be like, especially when there are many people riding the same network with you. Should you happen to live in areas where there is no 4G LTE coverage, then the step down would be HSPA, which is pretty much speedy by itself as well.
Specifications include a 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display at 800 x 480 pixels, a 1.4GHz processor underneath the hood supported by 512MB RAM, 16GB of internal memory that can be further augmented by a microUSB memory card slot, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, A-GPS, USB 2.0, and SkyDrive cloud storage. Imagine all of that crammed into a body that weighs just 160 grams. As for the 8-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and a dual LED flash that delivers a larger, f2.2/28mm aperture, you can be sure that your low light shots the next time you go out clubbing would be something worth looking at. Just make sure those drunken expressions do not actually get shared with the public, otherwise your future job applications might actually end up in jeopardy.
