Nokia Lumia 900 Release Date And Price Leaked: March 18th For $99.99?

Nokia Lumia 900 AT&T

At CES 2012, Nokia’s CEO Stephen Elop unveiled the smartphone that completes the Windows Phone-powered line-up of the Finland-based company: Nokia Lumia 900. From many point of views Nokia Lumia 900 is pretty much the same deal with Lumia 800, only it features a NFC chip and 4G LTE support.

Because US and the US-based carriers are simply in love with 4G technology, it was obvious that the smartphone announced by Stephen Elop at CES 2012 will hit The States via AT&T, sooner or later. What until a few hours ago it was only a rumor, now the guys at BGR come to confirm that Nokia Lumia 900 is set to debut at AT&T.

Quoting a “trusted source,” Boy Genius Report said that they have strong reasons to believe that AT&T is preparing to launch Nokia Lumia 900. After getting their hands on a portion of AT&T’s 2012 roadmap, the tech blog was able to find out that the US-based carrier are ready to receive orders for Lumia 900 starting March 18th.

The flagship of the Nokia line-up, Lumia 900, is a smartphone that comes with a 4.3-inch AMLOED display with Cornering Gorilla Glass and Nokia ClearBlack technology. The best thing about Lumia 900′s display is how it blends with the unibody case. Anyway, the Windows Phone-powered smartphone that was presented at CES 2012 features 16GB of internal flash storage, 512MB of RAM, and a single-core 1.4GHz Scorpion CPU mounted on the Qualcomm’s APQ8055 Snapdragon chipset.

Nokia Lumia 800 sports a 8MP camera with autofocus, dual LED flash and Carl Zeiss’ great lenses. With support for HD 720p video recording and a resolution of 3264×2448 pixels Lumia 900′s optic unit is almost everything you’d want from a phone camera. As you probably guessed Nokia’s flagship comes pre-loaded with Microsoft’s latest mobile OS, Windows Phone 7.5.

When it comes to connectivity, the high-end smartphone of the Nokia Lumia line-up comes with HSDPA (21 Mbps) and HSUPA (5.76 Mbps), WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v2.1, microUSB v2.0, NFC chip and, of course, 4G LTE support.

Yes, I know, is a smartphone that has the potential to greatly improve Windows Phone’s market share, especially that it will come at price of $99.99 on a two year contract at AT&T. Maybe, that’s what it’s meant to be: a solid rock in Nokia’s and Microsoft’s plan to make the Android and iOS enthusiasts turn their attention to Redmond-based company’s mobile operating system. Anyway it’s best to wait and see of BGR was right again and if Nokia Lumia 900 meant something on the US market.
