If launched and marketed correctly, the Nokia Lumia 900 will be huge for Nokia, AT&T, and Microsoft. I review hundreds of devices yearly, and I haven't been this excited about a smartphone launch since the HTC EVO 4G at CTIA in 2010. Once down and out (particularly in the US market), Nokia has the potential to bring Windows Phone into the spotlight in a way that we haven't seen from the other OEMs and their rehashed Android-turned-Windows-Phone devices.
Considering the $200-$300 price point of AT&T's other high-end LTE devices, the Lumia 900's $99.99 price tag is a steal, and combined with a rumored marketing push by AT&T, it could provide some much-needed traction for Microsoft's platform. To recap, the Lumia 900 offers a 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU, 4.3-inch AMOLED display with Nokia's ClearBlack technology, 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera with 720p HD video recording, 1,840 mAh battery, and 4G LTE connectivity. Build quality doesn't disappoint either; it's wrapped in a polycarbonate shell and will be available in black or cyan, with white coming on April 22nd.
I think this represents a turning point for both Nokia and Microsoft. What about you? Will the Nokia Lumia 900 turn the tide for Windows Phone? Cast your vote and defend your opinion in the comments section!
