We just got our hands on Nokia’s brand new Lumia 900 smartphone at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.The Lumia 900 debuted yesterday, and will be hitting AT&T’s 4G LTE network in the coming months.
The Lumia 900 needs to succeed if Nokia and Microsoft want to have any chance, albeit a late one, of scoring any market share in the United States.
Microsoft, Nokia, and others are reportedly throwing more than $100 million behind marketing the phone.
The Lumia 900 is the finest industrial design we’ve seen on any smartphone that isn’t made by Apple. Since the Lumia 900 features a front-facing camera (unlike its predecessor the Lumia 800), it’s pretty on par physically with the iPhone 4S. Now, it’s just a matter of arguing about operating systems: Windows Phone vs. iOS.
