Good News for Canadians, the Nokia Lumia 900 is now available via Rogers.
I wonder whatever happened to At&t's 45 day exclusivity of the device, I guess Nokia or Microsoft is really desperate to get this device out there while it's still hot!
Rogers put out a press statement:
TORONTO, April 10, 2012 /CNW/ – Today, Nokia Canada announced that the award-winning third smartphone in the Nokia Lumia family, the Nokia Lumia 900, is now available in Canada exclusively at Rogers Communications. Named “Best of CES” for all smartphones by CNET, the Nokia Lumia 900 is the first of Nokia’s Windows Phone-based range to feature high-speed LTE connectivity. Having the largest display of all Nokia phones, it delivers a rich content experience from a phone that still fits easily in your hand.
The Nokia Lumia 900 features a 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display for rich, bright images both indoors and out. It boasts faster connection speeds thanks to Rogers’ cutting-edge LTE technology, and a long-lasting 1830 mAH battery.
The primary 8-megapixel camera includes Nokia’s exclusive Carl Zeiss optics, with large aperture and wide angle focal length (28mm) for high-quality, uncropped images even in low-light conditions. It also has a 1-megapixel front-facing camera that boasts a wide angle lens that captures sharp, bright images right out of the box.
The Nokia Lumia 900 also comes equipped with signature Lumia experiences, such as Nokia Drive, which delivers a full-fledged personal navigation device (PND) with free, turn-by-turn navigation and dedicated in-car-user-interface. Available from Marketplace is the Nokia Maps app, which provides quick access to maps of more than 190 countries worldwide.
“The launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 in Canada signals our commitment to bringing the best phones into the Canadian market,” said Richard White, General Manager for Nokia Canada. “It is impeccably designed with clean lines and a camera that rivals stand-alone digital cameras on the market today. Combine that with the people-first Windows Phone experience and the Rogers’ LTE network – and it’s clear that this phone delivers an unsurpassed mobile experience.”
The Nokia Lumia 900 is available in black exclusively at Rogers Communications on April 9 for $99.99 with select 3-year plans. For more information, visit www.rogers.com/lumia900.
However, from the press release, it says the device is available in black, there is no mention of Cyan or White? Maybe they will be available at a later date? or maybe another carrier got exclusive rights to the Cyan or White versions? I dunno!
What I do know is the Cyan is selling like hot cake here in the US, it will be wise for Rogers to put out all colors, consumers love making choices!
