A by-product of the fusion of Nokia and Microsoft, Nokia Lumia 900 is expected to hit the US market on March 18. In the recently held Consumer Electronics Show, Lumia 900 was tagged as the coolest smartphone and even most popular.
Lumia 900 is a Windows Phone and supports AT&T’s 4G LTE network and offers a high-performance web browsing with Microsoft Internet Explorer Mobile, as well as both video and audio streaming.
The smartphone features a 4.3-inch active-matrix organic LED (AMOLED) display (with 800-by-400 resolution) and a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The phone’s main camera includes 8MP exclusive Carl Zeiss optics, with a large aperture (f/2.2) and a 28mm wide-angle focal length for high-quality, uncropped images even in low-light conditions. It also includes a front-facing camera with a large aperture and a wide-angle focal length that ensures sharp, bright images for high-quality video calling, right out of the box.
Like the other Nokia Lumia phones, the Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone has a head-turning design in bright cyan and stealthy matte black. This phone also features Live Tiles, which display real-time updates from social networks, e-mail, messaging, and other services, directly to the home screen.
Nokia is making a huge stake with Windows Phone, having dumped its previous operating systems (including Symbian) in favor of Microsoft’s offering. Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that the Lumia 900, which is geared to run on AT&T’s high-speed LTE network, would be “heavily promoted” in all of the carrier’s 2,400 U.S. stores.
