Just when we think that the Symbian-deal is about to fall off the cliff, Nokia gears up with Windows Phone. The Finish giant then became a major burden to other smartphone players as its latest WP7-infused smartphone inked a deal with AT&T for the LTE-enabled Nokia Lumia 900.
Yes, the WP7 version of the ever-popular (but not quite) Nokia N9 was announced in the recent CES 2012 in United States. And just as expected, this handset could slay Android frontrunners with its 4.3” ClearBlack AMOLED display with 480x800p capacitive touchscreen. The 1.4 GHz Snapdragon single-core CPU could also keep up with the blazing speed of other phones. It may have been short in the memory department with its 512MB ram; but it 300-hour standby time could be a good competitor to your iPhone 4S.
This handset will be exclusive for AT&T in the US upon the end of the first quarter. The Lumia 900 will be “aggressively” marketed in the US as Chris Weber, President of Nokia Americas, was quoted;
"The Nokia Lumia 900 is designed specifically with the US in mind and the announcement of this collaboration with AT&T, in addition to other recent announcements, signifies a new dawn for Nokia in the US."
Expect the pricing to be in the levels of Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia N9. We just wonder why Nokia released N9 instead of this WP7 here in the country. We’re pretty sure that Pinoys would love to have their Nokia smartphones in WP7 hues.
There’s a lot of mangoes in the comments section, be sure to pick one. We kid.
