Hands On: Initial Impressions Of The Lumia 900

In all the excitement around the 808 PureView that I have already covered in a fair amount of detail (with still more to come), another device was also announced – Nokia’s new Windows Phone flagship, the Lumia 900. Its the same smartphone that was announced at CES as an AT&T exclusive, and now it is coming to the rest of the world, albeit without the LTE radios.

All other specifications like the 4.3″ Clear Black display, a 1.4 Ghz processor, a 8 Megapixel Carl Zeiss AF camera, 1830 mAh battery, and the polycarbonate construction remain the same. Compared to the Lumia 800, it has a larger screen (3.7″ v 4.3″) that unlike the Lumia 800 isn’t curved. It also packs a bigger battery, and slight modifications to the design where the microUSB port and no longer hidden under a lid. The SIM card slot is also now akin to something like the iPhone.

The processor and RAM remain the same and the device will also ship with Windows Phone Mango, however, it will support internet tethering or WIFI hotspot out of the box. I spent some hands on time with the device at the Mobile World Congress, and here are my initial impressions.

Please bear in mind that the above device was a prototype and not running the final firmware.
