Nokia Lumia 900 Rumors
Nokia Lumia 900 has repeatedly leaked with images here and there confirming a larger Nokia Windows Phone than the current 3.7-inch breed. And today PocketNow seems to have confirmed all previous rumors and repeats much of our perception about the Nokia Lumia 900 with more certainty.
Nokia Lumia 900 Specifications Rumors
Nokia Lumia 900 is, essentially, a bigger version of that phone. Nokia Lumia 900 3.7-inch screen is superseded by a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, but the build is almost exactly the same. The iPod nano-inspired industrial design is still present, with an attractivenon-painted polycarbonate unibody integrating well with the Gorilla Glass display.
The Nokia Lumia 900 also arrives with similar matte black and the gorgeous cyan blue casings, with the prospect of more colours arriving once the device is launched.
There are further similarities with the Lumia 800 in the placing of the neatly-integrated, unobtrusive hard camera and volume keys, on the right edge of the device and the microUSB charging port and headphone jack at the foot of the device.
There are differences, aside from the size. The Nokia Lumia 900 brings a 1-megapixel front facing camera for 4G video conferencing and a new wide angle lens on the back of the device.
Nokia Lumia 900 brings Windows Mobile 7.5, or Mango as its known in the common tongue. The upgrade in mid-2011 was a massive boon to the fledgling Windows Phone platform offering indications that reaching its obvious potential was in sight. The Mango update brought 250 new features including IE9, threaded messages, improved Xbox LIVE integration, multi-tasking and improved live tiles allowing more information to be displayed on the homescreen, as found on the HTC Titan.
The native Windows Phone operating system really shines on Nokia’s devices. We enjoyed the limited time we were given browsing through the interface. Nokia reps were pretty adamant that we weren’t able to browse through apps as the final software build wasn’t complete.
In terms of other features on the device, Nokia continues its long tradition of offering massively well-specced cameras on its smartphones. The rear facing camera boasts Carl Zeiss Tessar optics (as expected). As we mentioned above, the Nokia Lumia 900 boasts a wide-angle lens, enabling you to capture more within the frame. The front-facing camera is also a new edition. HD video is present at 720p 30fps resolution.
Nokia Lumia 900 Will be Succed ?
That would potentially be death to Nokia’s chances in the US market, however. It may still be the number one mobile phone company in the world, but Nokia’s standing in the US is embryonic at best; if AT&T slaps a $200 tag on the Nokia Lumia 900 it’ll lose a huge chunk of potential audience who might be willing to give Windows Phone a punt. Offer it for $100, however, and all of a sudden there’s a lot more appeal. Do the unthinkable and opt for free-on-contract – just as the 800 is sold in many European countries – and you could have a real success on your hands.
Nokia has long made a point of highlighting Nokia Lumia 900 supply chain and experience in producing hardware, which combine to help the company drive down prices. Stephen Elop has even recently namechecked that as a reason why selling off its smartphone division to Microsoft simply wouldn’t make sense.
Now it’s time for Nokia to put its potency to work. It has one chance to storm the US market and convince analysts, investors, geeks and consumers that it has caught up with its rivals, and a bulging marketing budget isn’t enough, on its own, to do that. Price the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 right, and Nokia could take its first step on a comeback campaign it’s been paying lip-service to for months.
