Nokia introduced the Lumia 900 for AT&T

    Lumia 900 from Nokia has been perhaps the least-kept secret Show Electronics has the Consumer  (Consumer Electronics Show) this year, rumors of which appeared a few months ago. Today, Nokia CEO Stephen Elop introduced the device officially on the CES stage.

    This is Nokia’s first LTE smartphone, as well as the company's first flagship Windows Phone device, designed for the United States.

    As expected in the rumors, the Lumia 900 will be available exclusively at AT&T. Judging by Elop’s words about very close cooperation with the American operator, the phone will receive a lot of marketing support from AT&T, which corresponds to reports about Microsoft’s significant marketing budget for the Lumia 900, which is said to be about $ 200 million.

    According to some observers, the Lumia 900 could be the impetus for Microsoft's success in the smartphone market. So far, Windows Phone sales have been sluggish - perhaps due to the lack of a flagship device on the platform. Lumia 900 could be just such a device for Microsoft.

    The features and functions of the Lumia 900 are pretty good, though not surprising: the 4.3-inch AMOLED Clear Black screen (Lumia 800 has a 3.7-inch screen), a 1.4 GHz processor, and a front front camera in addition to 8 megapixel camera. The battery of the device with a capacity of 1830 mAh must withstand 7 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby time.

    The Lumia 900 will initially be available in black and blue in the same polycarbonate case as the Lumia 800 and N9 MeeGo. The phone will arrive in the US in the next couple of months at an unknown price, but according to Stephen Elop it will be “aggressive”, whatever that means.
