• Nokia released Lumia 900 in New York on the Times Square Event as 2012 Easter Sunday gift

    Posted on April 9th, 2012 David Brooks | 5 comments

    On Easter Sunday, Nokia has finally brought out the long anticipated new samrthone Lumia 900 on the Times Square Event in New York. Just before the release event of Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia promised that it would bring “a live performance with special guest”. No, we all know the special guest is the musical super star Nicki Minaj, who delivered an amazing audio visual experience in Times Square that brought New York City to a standstill. The Nokia Lumia 900 is really an amazing smartphone, which is available in three colors: black, cyan and glossary white, at only $99.99 from AT&T with a new two-year contract (Amazon cuts down that price to $20 or $50 depending on where you are with AT&T). It represents a number of firsts: it is the first high-end Windows Phone from Nokia to arrive in the U.S., it is the first 4G LTE smartphone from Nokia, and it is one of the first 4G LTE Windows Phones on the market.

    With the release event, let’s take a look at the Nokia Lumia 900 performance. Just like its precede Nokia Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 comes with stunning industrial design, great build quality, and a fantastic ClearBlack AMOLED display, great network performance, solid battery life, and a fast and fluid user interface due to Windows Phone 7.5. But of course, there are also some shortcomings of this new smartphone, like its weak performance in camera and shortage of apps to compete with its counterparts.

    Nokia Lumia 900The 4.3 inch Lumia 900 sports a ClearBlack AMOLED display with WVGA (480×800 pixels) screen resolution that features tremendous viewing angles, inky deep blacks, and punchy colors. The screen resolution may make it less wonderful to watch HD videos on Lumia 900, compared to its counterpart devices like 720P Android smartphones and Retina display smartphones. But with its large screen display, it still provides excellent experience for HD movie lovers for unlimited movie enjoyment on the go.

    The Lumia 900 is powered by the 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm processor and 512MB of RAM, just as the Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 smartphones. The processor has no trouble pushing around the Windows Phone 7.5 Metro interface. Still, the fast and fluid interface is a joy to navigate and provides a very different experience than other smartphone platforms. Windows Phone 7.5 introduced a few new features to make it easier to navigate a long list of apps, but I feel that the app list could benefit from some sort of folder organization system, especially when there are a lot of apps installed on the phone.

    The back of the 900 features an 8 megapixel camera and LED flashlight. The eight megapixel camera, plus with wide-angle 28mm, f/2.2 Carl Zeiss lens, looks fantastic, but in practice it doesn’t live up to the hype. The Lumia 900 supports to record 720p video, which is better though with continuous autofocus while filming, sharp and good framerate, while compared to other phones on the market that are shooting 1080p clips. Also, it includes a 1MP front camera, which could be used for video chatting. But the image effect is really not that good.

    As to the apps available for Lumia 900, Nokia includes its ESPN and App Highlights apps into Lumia 900. You can also get a lot of AT&T services as well. Users could choose to install or uninstall apps available from the Windows Phone Marketplace, which has grown tremendously to over 70,000 apps by now. Of course, there are still a lot of apps missing in Lumia 900.

    The battery life also is an important element for a smartphone. The 1830mAh Nokia Lumia 900’s internal battery is not replaceable by users, but easily cruises through a full day of hard usage even on AT&T’s 4G LTE network. Nokia says the Lumia 900 is rated for 7 hours of talk time, but is really an “all-day” battery.
