Boasting Carl Zeiss optics in the camera package, a speedy processor, and the latest Windows Phone 7.5 Mango operating system, the Nokia Lumia 900 delivers an Android operating system alternative with the familiar Windows PC operating system user interface. The handset measures 5.03 x 2.70 x 0.45 inches (127.8 x 68.5 x 11.5 mm) and weighs 5.64 ounces (160 g), and arrives in the typical candy bar smartphone form factor.
The 4.30 inch AMOLED touchscreen display on the Lumia 900 employs ClearBlack Display (CBD) technology to block reflections from incoming light through polarization, which allows for excellent viewing even in direct sunlight. That display is represented in 217 pixels per inch pixel density, for an overall screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. Visuals are created in more than 16 million unique colors, standard light and proximity systems are built-in, and a protective, scratch resistant layer of Gorilla Glass overlays the display.
With a 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor and Adreno 205 chip that handles all the graphics duties, the Snapdragon APQ8055 microchip set on board delivers the most current Windows Phone 7.5 Mango experience. 512 MB of RAM memory and 16 GB of built-in, user accessible storage round out the hardware package. An FM radio joins a proprietary YouTube video player in the multimedia package, and popular World Wide Web applications Flickr, Picasa and Twitter come preloaded.
The rear facing 8.0 megapixel camcorder contains an advanced optics package which allows for double wide scenes, comes equipped with a dual LED flash, and offers autofocus, touch to focus, video stabilization, exposure control and Geo tagging features. That rear device records video in 720P HD resolution, and also offers continuous autofocus while video recording. Portrait snapshots, video call and video chat options are offered with the front facing 1.3 megapixel chat cam. Buy the Nokia Lumia 900 starting at $49.
