Nokia’s latest and most expensive Windows Phone smartphone, Lumia 900, was showcased at the recently held Consumer Electronics Show in USA. But, the handset was an LTE version and therefore unsuited to markets like India.
This is likely to change soon as UK based retailer UK Carphone Warehouse has put up a pre-booking page for the Lumia 900 without LTE, which it claims will ship starting in June.
The bigger news here is that Nokia is already readying the non LTE version of the phone and will launch it in markets like India where LTE networks are still in the planning stages with no definitive launch date. If Nokia does what it did with Lumia 800, which was released in India soon after it was released in the UK, we will have the Lumia 900 latest by July.
Inspired by the Nokia N9 and Lumia 800 in terms of design, the new Lumia 900 features a 4.3 inch Amoled ClearBlack display that looks brilliant. Most of the features and hardware of the handset are same as those of Lumia 800 apart from the larger screen (Lumia 800 has a 3.7 inch screen).
Lumia 900 comes with a single core 1.4 GHz Qualcomm APQ8055 mobile processor and has an MDM9200 chip for 3G network support. Nokia has provided a mere 512 MB RAM for this smartphone and offers 14.5 GB of on-board storage with no possibility for expansion.
