You'll do have to be living under a rock if you still haven't heard about the Nokia Lumia 900.
This is Nokia first LTE, Large screen, windows phone till date, with a front facing camera, nice unibody industrial design and its exclusive to At&t (for now).
It was announced at the just concluded CES and boy did it draw alot of attention, so much so that it got accolades from all corners, the last time i counted, the Lumia 900 recieved these 4 awards:
- CNet's "Best of CES" smartphone.
- LAPTOP magazine's "Best of CES" finalists.
- Popular Science "Product of the Future".
- Popular Mechanics editor's choice award for CES.
This shouldn't be overlooked, it's not like the Lumia 900 was the only smartphone introduced at the CES, we saw the Sony Xperia S and Xperia Ion, Droid 4, HTC Titan II, and more, believe me there were some very impressive smartphones both for windows and android, but the Lumia 900 led the pack, getting rave reviews and even beating out newly introduced ultrabooks, can you believe that?
So the question is does it have what it takes to succeed in a US market?
Nokia couldn't reiterate enough about how this phone is designed for the US market, little wonder why; I mean, it packs a 4.3inch AMOLED capacitive screen, 1.4GHz snapdragon CPU, 8MP Carl Zeiss camera, a 1.3MP front facing camera with f2.2 focal aperture, a nice polycarbonate unibody, with sleek industrial design available in black and cyan (for now) and running the windows phone o/s with LTE support. with all this features, this phone is a beauty to hold, fits perfectly in your palm ( I know because I held it for a little over 5mins ;-)
i'm not a fan of phones with displays larger than 3.9inches, but i'll make an exception with the Lumia 900, when you hold this device, its not bulky at all and for some weird reason i'm going to break my "no more than 3.9inch screen" rule and get one.
Of course, there's no date as to when this device with hit At&t stores (rumoured for Mar 18th), but regardless, if i waited for the N8 for 9months, then a couple of months shouldn't hurt, right?!
