Nokia today announced at Mobile World Congress 2012 the Nokia Lumia 900. HOLD ON! Didn’t they announced the Lumia 900 during Consumer Electronics Show 2012?
Well, the Nokia Lumia 900 that was announced in CES2012 has LTE and is exclusive to AT&T. This Lumia 900 that Nokia announced at MWC2012 is a DC-HSPA version (up to 42Mbps) and is available worldwide. I have no idea why Nokia didn’t give it another name.
But name aside, the Nokia Lumia 900 is a beauty. It is basically a upsized Nokia Lumia 800. The Nokia Lumia 900 runs on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango. It has a 4.3 inch WVGA (800×480) ClearBlack AMOLED display with a 1.4 GHz Single Core Snapdragon processor. 8 Megapixel rear facing camera and a 1 Megapixel front facing camera. Just in time for the Skype on Windows Phone 7.
It is no surprise that Nokia is releasing the non LTE version of Nokia Lumia 900 in rest of the world. Most countries aren’t LTE ready and it would make more sense to buy a HSDPA+ version instead.
The Nokia Lumia 900 (Non LTE version) will be shipping in Q2 2012.
