If you have been wondering when the much anticipated Nokia Lumia 800 would land in the U.S., instead feast your eyes on the newest Windows Phone handset from Nokia. AT&T and Nokia have just introduced the Lumia 900, which is more or less a suped up version of Lumia 800, but with support for AT&T’s 4G LTE high speed network built-in.
And like with the Nokia Lumia 800 we reviewed a while back, the Nokia Lumia 900 runs on Windows Phone 7.5, it packs in an AMOLED ClearBlack display, it has been designed with the same neat polycarbonate body, and it will also be available in a voice of cyan or black. Both devices pack in the same 1.4GHz processor. However, the Lumia 900 one-ups the 800 by packing in a 4.3″ display, as opposed to the Lumia 800’s 3.7″ display.
The Lumia 900 also touts a camera that uses Carl Zeiss optics, with a large aperture (F2.2) and wide angle focal length (28mm) lens that is supposed to do well even in low light. Let’s hope that the Lumia 900’s camera is a better performer than the camera on the Lumia 800 which is medicre.
Nokia says that the 900 has also been tailored specifically for a North American audience. to that effect, they are working on bringing exclusive Windows Phone apps to the Nokia Lumia 900 first. That includes apps from CNN, ESPN, 20 hit games from EA Games, and even Sesame Street.
Pricing and availability is TBD, but AT&T says that the phone will be available soon. Meanwhile, check out our hands-on photos of the Nokia Lumia 900 below.
