Nokia has announced the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone powered LTE smartphone for the US market

Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone Mango smartphone announced 

Nokia today announced the Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T which basically is an enlarged Nokia Lumia 800. Both models are running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango on a 1.4 GHz processor. But the Lumia 900 has are running on an updated Snapdragon chipset. The Lumia display is larger though, with its 4.3 inch size. As Windows Phone 7.5 Mango currently only support the screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, it an easy choice for Nokia to increase the size of the display on the Lumia 900. A low display resolution keeps the production cost low. If the two devices has the same display features, the Lumia 900 display might even be cheaper to produce.

The Lumia 900 strength is the support for LTE networks. It is one of the first model running Windows Phone OS and  which also has LTE support. This means the Lumia 900 in theory can download content at 50 Mbps using the LTE network. The max HSPDA speed is 21 Mbps. The Lumia 900 is exclusively sold via AT&T in the US.

Nokia Lumia 900 is has a single core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8055 + MDM9200 processor which should be powerful enough for running Windows Phone. 


As with the Lumia 800 and Nokia N9, the Lumia 900 back cover is carved out in one piece of polycarbonate. Polycarbonate is a type of plastic with good electrical insulator. It is heat resistant and flame retardant. Battery capacity will increase compared to phone models with metal covers because the polycarbonate have very low shielding to network signals.

Oh dear Nokia, what ever happened to being innovative? I thought Lumia900 was the one meant to blow us away, but its hardly an upgrade from the already average even by 2010 standards Lumia800.

Nah i love these Lumia phones i care not for the top specs i don't need dual core and neither does WP as its buttery smooth anyway

Looks nice it's good Nokia came to there sense
And adopted Windows cos there Symbian
Has seen better days, if Nokia adopted android
I exspect it would boost up there success again
I can't see why they won't do this lol

Also What annoys me is is that US has
LTE and were still in the dark ages
Why is it we would get this faster speed

Symbian is now seeing better days. It now has Symbian Belle which is a million times improved & more like Android now. It ain't dead yet
Miss UK12 years, 3 months ago
Not seen that update
Symbian on the X6 or N95s
Were good for the time tho
Bonovox12 years, 3 months ago
That's cos you don't have any of the later ones. Symbian Belle is a big improvement & even the last update Symbian Anna at last has a qwerty keyboard Anyway we are off topic I guess

No phone OS (iOS, Android, WP, Meego etc...) tha NEEDS dual-core.
I wasnt talking about dual-core in my prev post, but i feel Nokia should have done more with the Lumia900, after all its Nokias flagship WP, this is the blockbuster that is superior to 800 and is meant to compete with the likes of iPhone4S 64gb, Samsung Galaxy SII, Google Galaxy Nexus, Xperia S, HTC TITAN II, HTC Sensation XE, Motorola RAZR etc...yet the 900 hardly seems to be a threat to any of the above, and it realy doesnt offer much over the Lumia800, actualy it only brings a larger display (with the same res) and thats all, this was Nokia's chance to make a killer WP handset, they could've ATLEAST given the Camera a bump with a larger sensor and 12mp with Xenon flash and they would've had a nice finisher for their 2012 line-up of WPs, am i asking for too much?
This is a company thats in quite a bad situation, its brand is diminishing on a daily basis even in emerging markets where it once ruled, they need a killer product A.S.A.P , and this is not it, IMO.
