Do Even More: Nokia Lumia 900
One of the most promising and exciting products unveiled at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show was Nokia’s latest addition to the Lumia family, the Lumia 900. While this is not Nokia’s first smartphone available in the United States, it is the first 4G LTE smartphone based on the new Windows Phone OS.
The strong partnership between Nokia and Windows is a promising attempt to attract more consumers to the Windows platform. The success of its predecessor, Lumia 800, along with the innovative technology, has made the Lumia 900 one of the most anticipated smartphones of the year.
Physically similar to the Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 features a 4.3-inch touchscreen with a resolution of 480x800 pixels and is powered by a 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor. In addition, the phone includes 512 megabytes of RAM and 16 gigabytes of built-in storage. It also has camera with Carl Zeiss optics, an F2.2 aperture lens with a 28mm focal length and a dual LED flash. It also includes a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, allowing users to video chat.
The only thing the Lumia lacks is an array of available apps. To date, up to 50,000 apps have been secured to its marketplace, while Google Android and iOS offer more than 1 million apps. The lack of apps for Windows will certainly be a detriment to many users. Many popular apps, such as Words with Friends, are not yet available in the Windows marketplace.
The phone will be available to AT&T users and will be run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Available in black and cyan, Nokia’s Lumia 900 is expected to launch in March at the low price of $99.99 with a two-year contract. With the success of both Nokia and Windows riding on the launch of the Lumia 900, all eyes will be on the m
