News about Nokia latest Windows phone has been flooding the net for so long. Finally during the Consumer electronics show held during the beginning of this month, the phone was introduced. The mobile is termed as Nokia Lumia 900. This is by far the latest and most expensive in the Nokia Lumia series.
The handset showcases during the CES 2012 was an LTE model. This makes it unsuitable for countries like India and aroused doubts whether this would be launched here. But these doubts have been cleared recently when UK based retailer UK Carphone has started accepting bookings for a non-LTE model of Nokia Lumia 900. This phone will be shipped by June.
The most attractive news for Indian customers is that Nokia has already started plans to launch the Non-LTE version of the phone in India. The mobile network providers in India is still planning to change to offer LTE network and it would at least take half an year to get the whole networks equipped with the required a circuitry and devices. It is in this scenario that the non LTE version is made especially for countries like India. If Nokia launch this device same like it did with Nokia Lumia 800 then we can expect Nokia Lumia 900 to be launched here by July.
When we first see the device we can definitely feel that some of the design cues of Lumia 900 are taken from Nokia N9 and Lumia 800. The phone is sufficiently big but will easily fit in your palms. The screen has a size of 4.3 inch and is of AMOLED type with clear ClearBlack display. This looks particularly brilliant and blends in with the overall look and feel of the device. The hardware specifications and the features of this phone are almost similar to that of Nokia Lumia 800 except for the large high resolution display.
This phone is powered by a single core APQ 8055 mobile processor that has a clock speed of 1.4GHz. This can be considered as a small draw back since most of the phones coming nowadays are powered by dual core and even Quadra core processors. This phone has a MDM9200 chip for 3G network support. There is lot of storage memory in the device and it has 14.5 GB of internal storage memory as well as 512 MB of RAM.
Nokia Lumia 900 price tag is not yet announced, we can expect an official press release from the company some time soon.
