The Nokia Lumia 900 is one of the most hotly-anticipated smartphones of the year. It is the first Nokia with support for 4G LTE, the first high-end Nokia to be offered by an American carrier in years, and one of the first Windows Phone smartphones with 4G LTE support.
It features design elements from the Lumia 800 and N9 that preceded it, but it has a larger, 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display that looks fantastic. The single piece polycarbonate design is a joy to handle, and the 1.4GHz single-core processor pushes around the Metro Windows Phone interface with ease. Unfortunately, the 8 megapixel camera with f/2.2 28mm Carl Zeiss lens leaves a lot to be desired, with poor white balance and terrible low light performance. The Lumia 900 will be offered by AT&T in cyan or black on April 8, and in glossy white on April 22. It will cost $99.99 with a new two-year contract.
