You might know the Nokia Lumia 900 Mango Windows Phone 7.5 as delivering the largest smartphone display ever created by Nokia. Or you may know the handset as one of the first Windows phones to offer 4G LTE connectivity. You might even know that one YouTube video maker successfully put the Lumia 900 through a hammer torture test that it passed with flying colors. And you might even know that the handset comes equipped with a high-end Carl Zeiss optics package on its camcorder that allows for extra-wide video and image capture. But what you may not know is that AT&T, the exclusive home of the Nokia Lumia 900 Mango phone since it was released April 8, recently dropped the retail price of that handset to $0.01 on contract at select retailers.

The 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display on the Lumia 900 increases the refresh rate of the screen and enhances the contrast ratio while reducing energy consumption, and also filters light reflections through a polarized layer, allowing for excellent viewing even in bright sunlight. The latest edition of the Windows operating system is on board, Mango version 7.5, and the display resolution on the handset is 480 x 800 pixels. 16 million separate colors are used to create the display, and the handset is well protected by a layer of scratch resistant Corning Gorilla Glass.
A single charge of the 1,830 mA battery in the handset provides 14.6 days of standby time and 7.00 hours of talk time. With 512 MB of RAM memory and 16 GB of built-in storage, the hardware package on board the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows phone includes a Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon microchip package. That collection of chips includes a 1.4 GHz Scorpion central processor as well as a separate Adreno 205 GPU that handles all graphics processing responsibilities.
On the front of the Nokia Lumia 900 is a 1.3 megapixel chat cam that also provides video call options, and integrated into the back of the handset is an 8.0 megapixel camcorder. That rear device benefits from an F/2.2 lens that collects 40% more light than the standard smartphone, which coupled with the dual LED flash provides excellent low light camera operation. Autofocus, touch to focus, video stabilizing, exposure control, Geo tagging and continuous autofocus while recording 720P HD video are some of the features of that camcorder. A YouTube video player has been pre-installed as well. Buy the Nokia Lumia 900 starting at one penny!
