Nokia Fanboy PRO, 10 Jan 2012Take that Samsung!
The Android killer, Lumia 900 has arrived in the USA. Samsung is shaking... moreOh please. The amount of time you spend crying and whinging about Samsung shows just how threatened you are by them.
Hooray for this new mid-range-specced Win7 phone. Children and grandmas everywhere will dance in the streets.
A couple of questions for Nokia?
Why r uusing the same model of N9 for Lumia..?
What happened to your inovation in design?
When r u going to enter dual core league?
Why do u want peoples to buy expensive Lumia while in d less price they can get better phones & iphone4s?
This looks amazing. I like the poly-carbonate in black. I bet that thing can take a beating. I really hope TMobile will get a version compatible with their network. I can't wait to ditch my HTC Android phone. One problem after another. No update after a year (from Android 2.3). I can't believe Android is as popular as it is.
I dont understand why it has to be launch in AMerica First ? I believe the cell phone user in Asia or even in Europe are much well tech savvy compare to US. I still remember when most of american (even my sister who lives there) were never know that their phone can send text sms.

Yeah their greedy, yeah their network is a bit dated, but the most other options don't work well with gsm. Verizon and sprint are proprietary networks anyway so unfortunately att is the best option for nokia customers as well as for making money.

It's $10-15, and meant for feature phones. What the wise man does is buy an unbranded and unlocked phone with the right bands, like any of the Nokia S^3 , Anna or Belle phones, and slap your SIM card in on that plan. Don't dare tell them and they will be none the wiser. I routinely download over 5 gb a month, tether and wifi hotspot on road trips. Never throttle down like T*Mobile and I never get hit with additional charges. Always the same bill unless I buy from the Nokia Store.

I guess the only excuse people in denial will be apps....which will have it's time. It's been barely 3 months since Nokia launched WP7 (others almost a year with no impact) and this 900 is looking great in the cyan color.
"Nokia Lumia 900. Coming with LTE connectivity and a 4.3” ClearBlack AMOLED, the Lumia 900 is going to be an AT&T exclusive at launch"
I'm happy for AT&T but I don't think I like the sound of the word "AT&T exclusive" in that sentence!
How about the rest of us not in the AT&T orbit?
But I'm sure Nokia will put out, if not the Lumia 900, at least an iteration of it for the rest of the world!
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2012RGB or Pentile?!Most likely PenTile, like the Lumia 800.
This phone is real Good, meets all the expectations of users. This will be the second best selling phone is US next to apple.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2012I'd consider buying this because it's built by the company themselves using Nokia sourced comp... moreWhat doesnt feel right? The fact that they are Asian companies that are destined to outperform ailing western companies like Blackberry and Nokia. Ignorance is bliss, time to stop generalising about a product's quality because of where it is made. Last time i checked, iphones and HTC and other high calibre Apple goods such as the Macbook Pro are built and assembled in China, no? Heard of Lenovo and Huawei? Apple goods, patented in America yes, made in China, you bet. ASUS known for its premium quality hardware for it's laptops, netbooks, notebooks and the Transformer Prime, made in Taiwan, no? Next you will be moaning of the fact that your phone or electronics goods were made in Indonesia or Vietnam where you can bet after China which is already a major player on the world stage, it will. The west sources it's goods to these countries because of cost saving measures yet they are made and replicated to the same high standards that you, the consumer buy and what the poor worker that made that phone had to endure through a tireless shift.
I will decide after both 800 and 900 in hands and will compare it personally.
Ani how great hardware. Nokia is still in competition and right come back
Ricky, 10 Jan 2012The 900 has the same great design as the 800, my favorite of smartphones, upscaled slightly. ... more4 inches is considered big? That is microscopic, people are entitled to thier opinions and choices so long as they don't hinder progress and an increase in screen size for the rest of us. Most of us watch movies, browse the net and play multiplayers on real estate 4.8 inch screens, the benefits outweigh the cons. Yes it is cumbersome to lug around but after going from the iphone 3gs to the Galaxy s2 to the Titan/Galaxy Note fulltime, there's no way i'd even consider going back to anything 4 inches or lesser. Folk complaining about large screens should make a suggestion to release one mid range device that has the smaller 3.8 inch screen. High end phones with the exception of the Iphone past, present and future ARE unlikely to go any smaller than 4 inches ever again unless flexible screens come out soon. If you want a modestly sized phone at the top of the range or fairly decent features, Iphone 4 or even the Galaxy R announced last week are the right phone for you. Otherwise top tier phones really aren't meant for folks like yourselves who constantly complain of bigger screens. Times change, going micro back to the days of the motorola v50 are not going to happen anytime soon, deal with it.
