The Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handset has been making the rounds on the Internet in a rather disturbing but impressive video clip. YouTube video account holder Techcraver uses the handset to drive a nail into a piece of 2″ x 4″ lumber, smashing the display side against the nail to drive it home. He also taps a nail repeatedly with a hammer at several places on the display to show the durability the Corning Gorilla Glass protective coating offers. Nokia certainly does not recommend you duplicating this experiment, but afterward the Lumia 900 4G Mango smartphone showed no adverse affects, no scratches or cracks, and worked normally.
Offered in your choice of Black, Cyan or White body colors, the Nokia Lumia 900 4G is one of the first Windows phones ever designed to support 4G LTE connectivity. That handset is exclusive to the AT&T 4G LTE wireless network, and recently received a retail price reduction starting at $19 for existing customers, and $49 for new customers on contract at select retailers. Nokia built the handset with their largest smartphone display ever designed, at 4.3 inches. The handset is 0.45 inches (11.5 mm) thick, and weighs approximately 5.64 ounces (160 g).
That AMOLED display delivers more than 16 million colors when rendering visuals, and has a resolution of 217 pixels per inch. That creates an overall display resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, and standard multitouch gestures are supported. Light and proximity sensors are integrated into the display, and provide auto brightness adjustment and battery conservation features. Approximately 7.00 hours of talk time is provided from a single charge of the 1,830 mA cell on board.
Powering the handset is a 1.4 GHz Scorpion CPU, and an Adreno 205 chip handles all the graphics processing duties. 512 MB of RAM memory is built into the handset, as is 16 GB of storage. The 8.0 megapixel camcorder on the Nokia Lumia 900 4G comes equipped with a dual LED flash and Carl Zeiss optics package, allowing for extrawide image and video capture. That camera is equipped with an F2.2 lens, touch to focus, autofocus, continuous focus while recording video, video stabilizer, exposure control and Geo tagging features just to name a few. Video capture is provided at 720P HD, and the front facing 1.3 megapixel chat cam also offers video call support. An FM radio comes pre-installed in the handset, and popular online destinations YouTube, Flickr, Picasa and Twitter have been pre-installed. Select online retailers are offering the Nokia Lumia 900 starting at $19.
