This one, you might consider moving from N9 to Lumia 900, because in the previous 800 it has same size as the N9, but this one has bigger screen, front cam, more Ram, as well as faster processor, also better battery. So yes, this will make a better step in Nokia products, and will take a lot of market share, but the only disadvantage is, if it come exclusive only for an ISP or any other company like AT&T, please Nokia, dont be stupide and let your first successful WP device be for all the world, because Nokia always saying connecting people, means everywhere not only in US, so please consider Asia as well as ME, and specially Dubai.
They don't need multicores processors, but WP7 needs HD screen right now.
PL2, 05 Jan 2012Actually the HD2 came with 512MB in Europe which later became 576 MB after a fimware upgrade a... moreHere in Sweden the HD2 had 256Mb of RAM (Which mine has). And besides... Microsoft has never made a guarantee to update any mobile OS before... We've got a guarantee.
My Android phone got one update before it was sacked.

Max, 08 Dec 2011Nokia phones are still @ 1.4 GHz and no front cam . Why should I buy this ?read before you coment, it has secondary camera. indicated is 1MP.
i am no expert on clock speed, but i should say it would depend on system requirements. if droid needs dual core to run properly, i'd say windows is better as it need only 1.4Ghz single core.
be sure this have a enough memory for all the application that i will install. because what happen now a days there are application that i like but i cant install coz im out of memory. so just to try the application i need i will uninstall the application i am using. so the 512mb memory here is not enough for the nex application we will install. unless you have all the application preinstalled already.
I wish I can filter the comments from the people who really have one and use it (hand on experience), than the people who just commented base on the specs on the paper. Who got this phone in their hand, your comment are welcome.

This 1,4 Ghz is faster than dualcore android, fanboy.. ;)
P.S. Are you blind? It HAS an frontcam!!
emilian, 10 Jan 2012hey what it means " A-GPS support" ? that means it wil have the free ovi maps? or not?Yes it is GPS (with A-GPS support) like in the Symbian phones or the Lumia 800... ;)
P.S. Not bad this Lumia 900!!

Additionally, Google have said all phones which are capable in terms of hardware will get upgrades for at least 18 months and within 3 months of them being released. Google have imposed this on all vendors of Android devices as of ICS. I know people who are still waiting for Mango updates as of now.
As for the graphics, I stand corrected on that. However, who insisted their previous devcies only have 64K colours when everyone else was doing far better?
To conclude, I will bet money not one phone running WP7.x will get an upgrade to version 8. They will find some way of getting out of it. In fact if I remember correctly not one single W5 phone got a 6 update. By insisting the current devices are single core is deliberately building in obsolesence to get out of provding major updates from what I can see. they did with Windows 5 and 6 and now it seems they will be doing the same with WP 7.x.

Second of all... The reason the HD2 didn't get a WP7-update was because of the screen which is only a 65k color screen whereas all WP7-phones are required to have a 16m color-screen. It didn't even have gorilla-glass which is another requirement. It also had too little RAM-memory (Minimum requirement is 512mb).
So get your facts straight or stop trolling.
Lester, 17 Dec 2011It's not Nokia's fault if it doesn't have a dual core cpu. Windows Phone doesn't support it yet. Sorry but that is not quite how it is. The O/S may not utilise it but is perfectly capable of running on a dual core platform. The real reason MS don't want to have dual core phones running Windows Phone 7.x is that they will have to provide updates when Windows Phone 8 is released. They will get around this by claiming Windows Phone 8 requires a minimum of a dual core platform to run. Thus forcing everyone to upgrade to new hardware and getting them out of providing updates. They can then also claim that their phone platforms are not fragmented. Well no, they won't be as they have sneakily got out of provding updates by ripping customers off. After all they have a track record of doing this as they did with Windows 6.x. They claimed the HTC HD2 could not be upgraded to Windows phone 7 and yet the HTC HD7 (one year later of course!) running Windows phone 7 had indentical hardware specs. Oh there was one absolutely vital difference and this is so important. It had 3 buttons instead of 5 on the case!! MS eventually owned up that was the best reason they could come with. As an ex-HD2 owner do they really think I will ever buy a Windows based phone again!!??
