Nokia Lumia 900 coming to AT&T exclusively, soon

Today at CES, Nokia unveiled their re-entry to the US phone market, the Lumia 900. The device (which looks just like the 800), will be available exclusively on AT&T in the "coming months" but did not state on pricing or availability yet.

The Lumia 900 comes with LTE support built right in, and is the first Nokia LTE enabled phone on the market. Specifications are the same as the other devices as far as we know, sporting a 4.3" screen with ClearBlack AMOLED technology, 16GB of storage, 8MP back camera and a 1.4GHz Qualcomm MSM8255T processor.

Nokia said today that the storage size of 16GB is the only size available, but they will look at expanding this later. The market availability of the Lumia will be available in more and more markets around the world as the company chooses, targetting countries such as Australia at a later date.

I hate ATT too. But people need to understand why ATT gets priority with lots of devices. ATT uses GSM which is a world band. Most businesses use ATT especially if employees travel. ATT is also the largest seller of Windows devices.

What irks me is that none of the new Nokia WP phones are available in Finland! It's not like we don't kinda make them.

Isn't that because you got the N9 etc?

I've been using a Samsung Focus with 8GB for a year, having 16GB will be great. By the time I get another phone in a year, I can get a 64GB.. No need to rush... Windows Phone is great...

hoping for an official unlocked version, so I can stick with Tmobile, so want this

MS Stores look to be carrying the Lumia 800 unlocked in the US. Not sure if it supports AWS bands, though

What gets to me is this - the crappy storage size. OK, you do a 16GB version so why not offer expandability then? this is the reason why I keep coming back to iPhone over and over again - it is 2012 and you have idiots at HTC, Samsung and Nokia who still think that 16GB is 'huge'. Sorry, 16GB is entry level and 64GB will become the new standard soon - get with the programme why don't you.

WP7 cant do expandable memory well as the OS (I think this is how it works) essentially RAIDs the Phone OS and the built in storage as 1 unit essentially. I guess they dont want to make 3 variants of the same handset and rather make 3 different handsets for size Dependant users.
Personally i have a HD7 and still over 11GB free, saying that i dont have movies etc stored on it, just some albums and games...

F this ATT only!?! I want my unlimited data, ill stick to Sprint.

AT&T offered Nokia a better deal so they went with it. I still expect to see at least one Nokia phone on sprint and verizon at some point, probably not the 900 but something else.

Verizon does need to get their act together...

Branding and Carrier Branding Makes it look Fugly!! absolutely gutted they would do this. Nokia Blasphemy...

Dodging question about more storage, shoving cloud down peoples throat. If the N9 had a 64GB Variant then Lumia 800/900 should follow suit or at least have upped the storage on the LARGER Lumia 900 to maybe 32GB? They need to accept both Manufacturers and Microsoft that not everyone will use the cloud or be comfortable with the idea of the cloud.

Better camera than Lumia 800, sounds tasty! So that's a plus for sure.

They stuck with AMOLED instead of downgrading to SVGA or whatever which is great!

No mention of UK or Europe which is a shame

FFC was needed but now MS need to hurry up and release skype. Tango is not as popular and lacks users.

No NFC, no biggie at the moment quite right when he said it would be bigger later.

Pains me to see a previous nokia phone (N9) with more Feats than the new counterparts.

I held off buying a Lumia 800 because I had an incline a 900 would be released. Not keen on the larger size, have a HD7 currently and would love to go one size down to 3.7"... Not happy about higher storage capabilities. Apple do 64GB and have the cloud there is no reason why WP7 can not follow suit.

Guess I might have to wait for Lumia 950 now... >.< Or I might ditch the HD7 and get a 64GB White IP4S

it's cdma. and cdma sucks, and nobody else uses it.


CDMA has a lot of benefits over GSM, such as better building penetration... Just because a standard doesn't become the preferred standard doesn't mean it "sucks"...

True, but LTE is the "standard" that's being adopted worldwide, hopefully, this year.

Verizon is married to Android and could care less.

Exactly, Verizon don't really care about Windows Phone otherwise they would have second gen handsets by now.
