At that time that Nokia announced the Lumia 900, none really knew about the phone’s specific date of launch. All that Nokia said at the CES was that the handset will be powered by Windows Phone 7.5 Mango and it will be out in the next few months. Then, we’ve heard that the smartphone has already been slated for March for a price that is yet to be told.
A couple of weeks after, we’ve learned that Microsoft’s brick and mortar stores are currently offering the said handset for pre-orders. The price and official date of availability remains cloaked but if you really want to get one, you can pay the pre-order fee of 25 USD. You will also be given the chance to choose between the handset’s Cyan and Black colors. For sure, by the time that the phone gets released in the market, you will have to apply for a new two-year contract at AT&T Wireless.
Anyways, the Nokia Lumia 900 looks really dazzling. It flaunts its 4.3 inch AMOLED Capacitive Touchscreen Gorilla Glass Display with 480 x 800 pixels of full screen resolution. Furthermore, you can rely on the phone’s 1.4GHz Scorpion Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon CPU that goes alongside with its Adreno 205 GPU, 512MB RAM, 16GB storage, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, NFC for mobile payments, high-speed micro USB 2.0, 3G, 8MP rear facing camera with Carl Zeiss optics, auto focus and dual LED flash, 720p video recording, 1.3MP front facing camera, HTML5 Browser, Stereo FM Radio with RDS and 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone will be no less than 11.5mm thick and will sport an average weight of 160 grams.
As for those who are planning to pre-order the Nokia Lumia 900, you can go to your nearest Microsoft Store. There’s one in Palo Alto, Atlanta, Bellevue, Los Angeles and Seattle. Meanwhile, those folks in the UK will have to wait for a few months more.
