The Nokia Lumia 900 is now official for the U.S as an AT&T exclusive! The Lumia 900 is Nokia’s new high-end Windows Phone, set to release “in the coming months” for a still unannounced price. Nokia surprised the world today by re-entering the U.S market with an exclusive smartphone: it’s the first time the Finnish manufacturer releases something that is uniquely built for the American consumer.
The Lumia 900 is a piece of industrial art, much like it’s younger brother, the Lumia 800. The Lumia 900 will introduce some interesting features to the market, such as Nokia Drive and Nokia’s own ESPN exclusive app–all in a sexy design that the U.S is definitely not used to seeing. The Lumia 900 is sculptured out of a single piece of polycarbonate, and each cavity is independently drilled in order to achieve it’s seamless look and feel. More interesting though, is that the Lumia 900’s polycarbonate body is RF transparent, meaning it doesn’t block radio waves, and if it scratches, all you see is more of the same color.
The 900 is also pulling off some amazing moves in the technology front: it boasts amazingly fast LTE connectivity for speeds up to 50Mbps in certain LTE-enabled cities. It also has a wide-angle lens 1.2MP front camera for crystal-clear video conferencing, and a Carl Zeiss, Wide-Angle, 8MP dual-LED flash camera in the rear. It’s screen is an amazing 4.3″ AMOLED Clear Black Display featuring a 24-bit color depth. To power this flagship, Nokia used a huge 1830mAh battery, more than enough to keep this thing running for an entire day. Windows Phone Mango is on board!
The Lumia 900 is the first of it’s kind among Nokia’s portfolio. Here are some of the specifications:
