Offered in your choice of Black or Cyan body color, the Nokia Lumia 900 4G Windows smartphone is one of the first mobile handsets with a Windows Phone operating system that also delivers 4G LTE capability. Running exclusively on the AT&T 4G LTE network, the Nokia Lumia 900 delivers the most recent Windows Phone operating system, version 7.5 Mango. The handset is average in shape and size for a 4G smartphone, and slightly heavier than the typical 4G handset, measuring 5.03 x 2.70 x 0.45 inches (127.8 x 68.5 x 11.5 mm) and weighing 5.64 ounces (160 g). The Nokia Lumia 900 delivers a speedy processor, Carl Zeiss camera optics package and the largest display Nokia has ever built for a smartphone.
Those features, and the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system running on a 4G LTE wireless network, were the reasons why the Nokia Lumia 900 won an impressive 13 overall awards at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) when it debuted there earlier this year in Las Vegas. The most coveted recognition of the entire event is always the CNET Best of CES award, which the Lumia 900 won, beating out literally thousands of competitors.
Awards being delivered by industry analysts and tech experts do not always translate into sales success, but the Nokia Lumia 900 4G actually sold out of its original stock levels at several retail outlets around the United States within 48 hours of its launch. Stock levels have been replenished, and Raymond James tech analyst Tavis McCourt recently reported that his random check of 15 different AT&T retail outlets showed the handset is outselling all other smartphones except for the iPhone. The sales success and consumer popularity of the handset comes at a great time for Nokia, a company which has been struggling in the smartphone arena the last couple of years.
The handset has a 4.30 inch display with 480 x 800 pixel resolution, and that AMOLED screen delivers images and video in more than 16 million separate colors. A layer of scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass overlays the display, and also provides glare reduction. Standard light and proximity sensors are also on board, providing auto brightness adjustment and battery conservation. Approximately 7.0 hours of talk time is achieved from a single charge of the 1,830 mA battery, and standby time runs 14.6 days.
Powering the handset is a 1.4 GHz Scorpion central processor, and an Adreno 205 GPU handles all graphics processing. 512 MB of RAM memory is on board, as is 16 GB of built-in, user accessible storage. The Carl Zeiss optics package allows for extra-wide video and image capture, and the rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder provides video recording in 720P HD. A front facing 1.3 megapixel chat cam also provides video call support. The Nokia Lumia 900 can be purchased starting at just one penny!
