Sneak Peak at The New Nokia Lumina 900

Nokia Lumia 900 was introduced in the CES 2012 with AT&T using the 4G LTE service. Nokia is trying to create a cycle with its phone. First N9 then Lumia 800 and now Lumia 900. All of them look similar to each another. And the new Lumia 900 is just an enhanced Smart Phone from the Lumia 800. The only upgrades are the processor, battery life, scratch resistant and data speed. Lets take a quick look at its specs.

Coming to pros and cons


  • Corning Gorilla Glass
  • 4G LTE


  • Only 720p recording
  • 8MP camera
  • Only 1.3MP camera

Editors Verdict-

The phone is quite big and heavy; yes we don’t know what Nokia had in mind while making the Lumia 900. Are they trying to think like Samsung with their Galaxy Note? Well in that case Nokia is not going to win because Galaxy Note is completely different strategy in Smart Phones. Nokia used the empty space inside the casing to give bigger battery as the phone comes with 4G LTE under AT&T.

Camera is still the same as the Lumia 800. There were many Smart Phones released in CES 2012 that has 13 mega pixel camera and even 16 mega pixel cameras. So what is the Lumia 900 doing with 800 Mega pixel camera. We all the limitation of Microsoft with its mobile OS, the HTC Radar II has 16MP camera but record videos at only 720p! Same is the condition of Lumia 900. However you get Carl Zeiss f/2.2 lens. The 900 come with a special CNN app that features of iReport (which is famous only for who are keen in reading news from mobile). The phone is a big flop unless you are big fan of Nokia and Window Phone 7.5 Mango. If want to get a better Windows phone the HTC Radar II is on its way.
