At the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Las Vegas, on Monday, January 9, Nokia and AT&T announced the Nokia Lumia 900, Windows Phone. Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop took the stage to announce the Nokia 900, the widely anticipated first “re-entry” for Nokia into the US smartphone market.
Available exclusively to AT&T in the “coming months”, the new Lumia 900 comes in cyan and matte black, and has a 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack Display, faster connection speeds based on cutting-edge 4G LTE technology, and a long-lasting 1830 mAH battery for enjoying content all day.
The primary camera includes Nokia’s exclusive Carl Zeiss optics, with large aperture (F2.2) and wide angle focal length (28mm) for high-quality, uncropped images even in low-light conditions.
In addition, the Nokia Lumia 900 includes a front-facing camera boasting a large aperture and a wide angle lens that ensures sharp, bright images for high-quality video calling, right out of the box.
“Nokia’s third Lumia smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 900 builds on Lumia’s head-turning design on the outside and a rich social and Internet experience on the inside. People Hub is the quickest way to connect with friends with Live Tiles for real-time updates and a fast Web browsing experience with Internet Explorer Mobile,” said Nokia.
