I for one waiting for this for a long time. Today HTC also announced its first Windows Phone 7 LTE HTC Titan II which has some wow factors like 16 MP Camera. Now this, and Lumia with its stylish build will definitely bring Wow into the mouths of anyone looking for a new LTE phone once it is released. lumia900cyanThe super smooth Windows Phone 7 looks brilliantly awesome on both HTC and Nokia LTE phones that are announced in today’s shows. But Nokia will definitely make the people drool over its style.

Here are interesting things that definitely make one to crave for this phone:

1. The Nokia Lumia 900 allows data downloads up to 50Mbps on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.

2. It boasts a large, 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display  which offers a big, crystal clear and super-colorful screen indoors and out. The resolution is 800 by 480 pixels. (But HTC Titan II runs on 4.7” Super LCD with 800×480 pixels resolution). Yes, Super AMOLED beats Super LCD anytime, and the proof is Samsung Focus Vs. HTC Titan in this area.

3. Lumia 900 is powered by updated chipset from Qualcomm, 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon APQ8055 + MDM9200.

4. Bands supported are GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 850/1900/2100, LTE Band 4 (1700/2100) & 17 (700)

5. Its all in the battery power,  Lumia 900 powerhouses 1840mAH battery  and that will last for about 7hrs talk-time and up to 300hrs on standby and running on LTE (Android LTE phones make a note of it).

6. Lumia 900 intuitively provides the Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive that makes it separate from the rest of LTE phones either powered by Windows Phone 7 or Android. iPhone is in no where near this. Nokia Drive offers free, turn-by-turn, voice-guided navigation everywhere.

7. Nokia phones are known for their buildquality including Cameras that  are housed in those phones. Actually Mega Pixel doesn’t make any sense if the lens is not at quality. On the back, there’s an 8-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and a dual LED flash. This model has a larger, f2.2/28mm aperture, allowing more light into the camera for faster performance, lower chance of motion blur and better low-light shots. You are talking about Nokia, not other. I think even HTC Titan II 16MP Camera doesn’t meet the quality of this 8 MP camera.

8. The video recording quality is at 720p (barely HD), most of Android phones offer 1024p HD recording. Having said that I think 720p makes sense in most of the cases. Lumia 900 supports hi-res video capture for 720p/30fps.

9. Unlike Nokia Lumia 800, this phone has  a second, front-facing camera to give support for high quality video calls at 1MP supported by f2.4 lens and 30fps capture. Now, Microsoft has to release Skype for Windows Phone 7.

We will know more about Nokia Lumia 900 during the week and I can’t really wait to see an actual phone at local AT&T store. By then my Samsung Focus lines (2 of them) would be ready for contract and possibly my budget will allow me to capture both Lumia 900 and Titan II.

The complete technical specifications are:

  • Networks: GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900, WCDMA 850/1900/2100, LTE Band 4 (1700/2100) & 17 (700)
    OS: Windows Phone Release 7.5 – Mango Commercial Release 2 (Mango + LTE)
    Memory: 512MB RAM
    Storage: 16 GB internal memory (14.5GB user memory) + SkyDrive cloud storage
  • Camera: 8 MP Carl-Zeiss f/2.2 lens with 720p HD Video Capture at 30fps, and 1MP Front Camera with 30fps for Video Call.
    Weight: 160g (5.6 ounces)
    Dimensions: 127.8 x 68.5 x 11.5 mm (5 x 2.7 x .45 inches)
    Display: 4.3” Super AMOLED with 800x480MP resolution.
  • Rest of the specs like GPS, Gyro, Compass, WiFi, BlueTooth and other are pretty standard in majority of Windows Phones.

  1. It’s going to be a long 2 months (+8 days, 13 hours, 45 minutes, 5 seconds) waiting for this baby. Btw, if you have ever handled an HD7: 4.8″ x 2.68″ x .44″, you are looking at about the same size, plus .2″ in length

  2. As a diehard Windows Phone/User, I’m dying here with the lack of memory options. Skydrive is BS and should not be included in specs (it has nothing to do with hardware). If MS/Nokia are going to treat us like we are dumb, then I’ll take that abuse with a better device like an iPhone.

    I can’t express how disappointed/frustrated I am with the crap MS pushes out and pushes on us. Does anyone think we will ever see a real High-End device?

  3. Don’t think Microsoft has a limiting spec on device memory, so your frustration should probably be directed at Nokia & AT&T, and most likely has to do with pricing-common need, rather than capability. Hell, I would love a 2400mAh battery, and the ability to turn off LTE, but will have to settle for 1840mAh and toggling Data off to conserve power.

    I know everyone’s needs are different, and while I still have half of my Surround’s memory available after 14 months, have you ever considered what it might take to squeeze your needs into 14.5GB. Just a question. With that said, I think Nokia should be offereing a 32GB Ace, at a $100 premium, for those that absolutely have to have it.

  4. @Jim Szymanski +1
    I totally agree with you. I have original Samsung Focus with 16 GB SD added. I haven’t filled my original 8GB yet, I do have 600+ songs loaded (because I retired my Zune HD), and I do take Point and Shoot pictures, and video with it regularly. Yes, I have good number of apps, and games loaded. Of course I automatically upload photos and videos to my SkyDrive.

  5. I think MS has issues with processing larger memory with this OS. When I fill my Surround to the brim it gets buggy. I’m not the only one that has that issue and it happens on all devices. So to combat that I have to leave 4gb free. I have about 6gb of music loaded because I don’t wish to use another device, which that pocket space is for a wad of cash. I would agree that AT&T has something to do with this; they took off the 3.5 audio jacks from WM devices.

    So my issue is I’ll have to get a Zune/2nd device to make room for Baby pictures and Videos. I’m a Photog as a hobby, I take great pictures/video. 16gb is chump change in the Photog world and a device designed for that with these specs is useless. HTC T2 has 16megs, memory killer. 32gb would and should be the minimum for these devices and 64gb should be the upgrade. I’ll spend the extra for the extra. Why is it that Apple is the only one to get it?

    I haven’t even mentioned the fact that MS losses $ on my lack of Zune music purchases.

    Jim, by the way 14months is way too long for one device, I’ve got the itch.
