In many ways the Lumia 900 is Nokia’s first no-compromise Windows Phone flagship. The Lumia 800 had a lot going for too, but the smaller screen size, lack of the front facing camera, software issues with battery performance (which have now been completely fixed) meant that there were things that Nokia could have done better.
The Lumia 900 is the pinnacle of the Windows Phone ecosystem, and it looks spectacular. It comes with a 4.3″ AMOLED clear black display, a 1.4 Ghz processor, 512 MB of RAM, an 8 Megapixel Car Zeiss camera with a dual LED flash, an impressive 1830 mAh battery, all of which is packed into a sublime design. The Lumia 900 in white is easily the best looking smartphone on the planet.
If a pitch is to be made about great design selling phones, then all you need to do is to point towards a Lumia 900.
The device also ships in black and blue (cyan), but as you can probably tell, the white easily wins it for me. The Lumia 900 has started to go in sale in different parts of the world, and I expect to be stores in India by the beginning of June. I’ve played with the international non LTE version of the Lumia 900 before, but its finally here in retail packaging, and in the video below, I do the customary unboxing:
