Quite late, but better late than never, Lumia 900 knocked on my door 2 weeks ago. I had the opportunity to try the Nokia Lumia 900 and I was curious, as I’ve been a user of Lumia 800 in the past. It was time to check out the big brother of Lumia 800 and see where it stands.
Lumia 900 was announced and launched in most of the countries, except the India (I never understood why!). Anyway, it was finally launched in India when everybody was waiting for Lumia 820/920.
Sales Package contains following items with Lumia 900:
Sadly, you’ll have to buy an adapter to plug of charger in our Indian sockets. The package also includes a SIM Door Key to open the SIM Door and pull out the microSIM tray.
Nokia just announced on it’s official blog, Nokia Conversation , one of the most innovative smartphone ever, Lumia 920 is coming to US on AT & T in November. Lumia 820 will also be available at the same time.
No comment about other countries are made officially yet. Most likey, the will the available at the same time in other popular markets.
People were confused whether there will be a Cyan Lumia 920. Well, Nokia finally announced that Cyan color will also be available.
Quoting them about accessories:
The new Lumia phones will be joined by a plethora of accessories such as the Nokia Wireless Charging Pad and Wireless Charging Stand, as well as the JBL PowerUp Wireless Charging Speaker.
Well, nice to see not much delay. There is no word about pricing yet. Let’s see how reasonable they turn out to be.
Are you excited? Are you going to get one? Which color is your favorite? Let us know, either in comment or @NokiaTips 😀
Nokia has recently launched Nokia 808 PureView in India. India is one of the luckiest country to receive that beast early.
IBN Live has recently reported that India is going to receive Nokia Lumia 900 soon. Nokia Lumia 900 is a high end Windows Phone device with 4.3″ AMOLED CBD, powerful 1.4GHz CPU, 8MP dual LED camera and with a front camera also.
With high end phones, low end phones are also coming to India. Nokia’s Asha series is meant for low budget phones that can help everybody connect with the Internet. Nokia Asha 305 and 311 are also coming to India. Low end Windows Phone device, Nokia Lumia 610, will also hit the Indian market soon.

Bill Detwiler at TechRepublic disassembled Nokia Lumia 900 to have a peek at it’s hardware. They posted series of photo’s taken while disassambly.
Have a look at their full gallery at http://go.nokiatips.in/Hj7ofq
They also compared it with Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S and said
The Lumia 900 may lack of a dual-core processor and have a lower resolution screen and less storage capacity than the Galaxy Nexus and iPhone 4S, but it’s definitely the best Windows Phone 7 device I’ve tested. And even with its less-than-cutting edge hardware, I found the Lumia’s overall performance on par with the other two phones.
They are correct, hardware specs wise, they may lead, but Lumia 900 has sufficient specs to run Windows Phone smoothly or any other app, then burdening more on customers just for higher specs is senseless.
