Nokia Lumia 900 Exclusive Through AT&T Comes With 4G LTE
Nokia Lumia 900 – this is one of the biggest news today in the mobile industry right after Nokia showcased it last week on CES 2012 (Consumer Electronics Show). The first impression I had when I saw Nokia Lumia 900 is it does look like the previous Nokia MeeGo. Maybe it is because of its exterior design – but there’s more about it which made people wanted to have it (or at least see it for themselves). One little bad news for all Filipinos out there who wanted this latest smartphone from Nokia is that you can’t have it (for now). Well, I still need to confirm with our local carriers here if they could support the frequency band of Nokia Lumia 900. As far as I am aware, although LTE should support its predecessor frequency bands I should still need to know if Globe, SMART, or SUN carriers here in the Phillipines if at least they could support the following 4G bands - 700 / 1700 / 2100. Otherwise, it will be useless for us to have this smartphone. Until then, all we can do is wait for that to happen unless you’re living where it is under AT&T’s coverage.
Going back at CES 2012, it was also announced that the Nokia Lumia 900 is now officially exclusive and will be available sometime in March in AT&T. It will be compatible with AT&T’s newest 4G LTE network and needless to say people will enjoy fasted data transfer. This means that video streaming will be faster, browsing the Internet will not be sluggish and downloading files will only take little of your time.
Nokia Lumia 900 does not only have LTE, but also sports an AMOLED capacitive large-screen display that stretches up to 4.3 inches with 480 x 800 pixels. Of course, it uses Gorilla glass Nokia ClearBlack display technology. As for the camera, as usual it still uses the Nokia’s signature Carl Zeiss optics with autofucos and dual LED flash with an output of 8MP images. Unfortunately, based on the report this smartphone doesn’t have a card slot (additional external memory will not be possible) but can store up to 16GB with its internal storage. There are other features that you can check on this smartphone but the only thing that I would like to see in action is its operating system. Nokia Lumia 900 is running under Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango – I haven’t seen one so I am really intrigue by this.
So far, I haven’t seen any online mobile store that offers Nokia Lumia 900 and I guess we have to wait until it is officially out from AT&T. Here’s the video teaser from Nokia showing their Nokia Lumia 900. You can also check Nokia Lumia 900 specifications comparison with iPhone 4S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus here – link.
