The success of Nokia Lumia 800 prompted Nokia to launch the Nokia Lumia 900, an updated version with a larger display. Apart from the size of the display, there is very little to differentiate between the two. The Lumia 900 incorporates most features that are the hallmark of a successful smartphone. The design uses unibody polycarbonate to give the Lumia 900 a clean and slick appearance. This handset weighs 5.64 ounces and its dimensions are 5.03 x 2.7 x 0.45 inches. The slim built and the light weight makes the handling of this handset quite simple. The distinctive look of the Lumia 900 is unique and quite attractive.
The Nokia Lumia 900 has three Windows Phone buttons perfectly spaced out just below the handset’s display. The spacing eliminates any chance of accidentally pressing the wrong buttons, as can be the case with closely spaced buttons. The 1.3 MP front facing camera can be found on the top left corner of the phone just above the display. This is helps a lot while making video calls or taking snapshots of yourself.
Nokia Lumia 900 comes with a bigger screen than the Lumia 800. As opposed to the 3.7 inch AMOLED display of the Lumia 800, the Lumia 900 handset comes with a 4.3 inch capacitive AMOLED display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The handset’s high quality screen is protected by the tough Corning Gorilla Glass. This layer of extra tough glass protects the screen from undesired scratches and cracks. Nokia Lumia 900 comes with a Lithium Ion 1830 mAh battery and offers up to 7 hours of talk time, up to 300 hours of standby time and music playback of up to 60 hours.
Nokia Lumia 900 has a neon colored, single piece polycarbonate shell that encloses the impressively designed handset along with the 4.3 inch AMOLED touch screen and the handset’s antennae. The phone has an extra layer of protection due to the use of the ClearBlack glass which also adds an element of mystery to the phone. The back side of the handset sports the main camera which has an 8 MP resolution. The camera uses Carl Zeiss optical lens to provide the best clarity for photos and videos shot using the phone camera. The handset offers a photographer friendly LED flash which enables the clicking of pictures, recording of videos and making video calls in areas with insufficient lighting.
Just like the Lumia 800, Nokia Lumia 900 enables high speed internet access using its WiFi capabilities. The starting screen of the Lumia 900 is preloaded with the Mobile version of the Internet Explorer 9 to offer mobile browsing. The support for cutting edge web technologies like HTML5 lets you enjoy high speed internet, interesting apps and entertaining videos to make the best use of the stunning display quality on the screen. The quick access to the Bing search engine lets you get started with your web searches without wasting any time. Lumia 900 also offers email support for a variety of email service providers like Gmail, Hotmail, Windows Live, Nokia email, Yahoo Mail or other third party email providers which allow access to email using POP, IMAP and SMTP. The utility software available on the Nokia Lumia 900 helps you access and edit documents in a variety of formats like PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, etc.
Nokia Lumia 900 allows you to use multimedia and text messaging along with other instant messaging services and has features to enable integration with a variety of social networks like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. The handset also includes a music player which is built in and has access to Zune music service. This lets you search for and download your favorite music numbers straight to your mobile phone. Access to the internet and the integrated FM radio allows you to tune in to receive the latest news or enjoy your favorite radio stations. Alternatively, if you are a gaming fan, you can use the Nokia Lumia 900 to play Xbox Live games.
Rounding out the features of the Nokia Lumia 900 is the inbuilt GPS and A-GPS antennae, which can be used by mapping applications like Nokia Maps and Bing Maps which come preloaded with the handset. These applications can be used to find a particular place or to guide you while driving around. The Lumia 900 handset might look slim and elegant but it is also packed with useful features that will make your handset an indispensible accessory.
