EXCLUSIVE: Nokia Lumia 900 Hands On!

That’s right we have been seeing Lumia 900 results popping up. A Nokia source got me hands on with the device & answered a few questions on it.

So first things that you will notice with the device is the huge 4.3 AMOLED screen which is a personal favourite of mine & a 1.4GHz processor.  As with all the Windows Phones on the marketplace currently the HTC Titan is the only other device with a big enough screen with as I was told “a nicer camera to compliment the big screen”.

Regarding the design on the device itself it is just a bigger Lumia 800, keeping the same design and button layout out. The only current differences regarding design were the current Lumia 800 push & click for access to the device & Micro Sim have changed into a iPhone style pin push access to the Sim card and no cover to the Micro USB.

Finally a change which will only go ahead depending on the feedback on the Lumia 800 is the case finish which the current prototype has a gloss finish unlike the current Lumia’s matt finish.

As I only saw a prototype & the device has a while to go till final production we can see a few changes yet to happen but I will try to keep you as updated as possible.

Launch will be hard to really estimate, although some seem to think we’ll be seeing it in Q1 2012 (note the picture on that link is *NOT* the Lumia 900), but we can look at around Tango release because the current prototypes are only running on Tango.  Finally as Nokia are such great fans of NFC I also had confirmation that the Apollo (Next gen of Windows Phones) will bring support for NFC devices.

    I got a few question that I would love to have answered.

    How big is the storage on the device?

    What carrier is the device for?

    Is LTE on board?

    • December 13, 2011    

      I’m sorry but I didn’t get that information, but i’m sure it was an unlocked device.

    Most importantly: is it curved glass or not (i.e. just  completely flat, traditional glass)?
