Family Portraits: Nokia Lumia 900, N9, and 800

Apr 1, 2012

I recently got my little Nokia collection together for a photo shoot; the Lumia 900, the beautiful white N9, and the stunning cyan 800 posing for the camera. All I have to say is that Nokia has been exceeding in the design department as of late. Each and every phone, although derived from the N9’s design, has its own appeal to the eye. Enjoy the...

Some confusion raised about the Nokia Lumia 900’s display after it was introduced: it was not clear if like the Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 used a PenTile AMOLED display.
