Rumor: Lumia 900 coming to US in early 2012?

Nokia's plans for launching its Windows Phone-based devices may include a all new addition to the family if a new Internet rumor is correct. Boy Genius Report has posted word via unnamed sources that Nokia plans to launch the Lumia 900 in the US sometime in early 2012. The new device will have a much larger screen than the Lumia 800 which is currently on sale in several European countries.

The report claims that the new Lumia 900 will have a 4.3 inch ClearBlack AMOLED touch screen display along with a 1.4 GHz processor and an eight megapixel camera. The report also claims that the phone will ship with the upcoming Windows Phone "Tango" software update. There's no word on which wireless carrier in the US will offer the Lumia 900 for sale, although AT&T recently said that it was close to closing a deal with Nokia to offer its Windows Phones for sale. The report also doesn't make clear if the new Lumia 900 will be offered in addition to the Lumia 800 phone or if it will take the place of the Lumia 800 here in the US.

BGR also claims that Nokia is prepping for a major marketing push here in the US for the January and February 2012 time period. That would certainly make sense if the company is really getting ready to launch its Windows Phone products in this country. It's likely that more info will be revealed at CES in early January.

Sounds great. The 4.3" screen + Tango update will allow for higher resolutions. Hope it comes to where I live too (the lumia 800 in 1Q12 was confirmed to me by a Nokia store employee).

1280x720 screen resolution will not come with Tango but Apollo...the Lumia 900 will have the same old 480x800 display, nothing special.

These things having AMOLED screens pretty much makes them extremely competitive. I would use an AMOLED any day over an iphone screen because theyre simply beautiful. WP7 i bet by next year will be a beast

I'm increasingly finding that stories posted in the forums are being copied on the front page, sometimes hours later. What's the point of rehashing something that people are already commenting on and what's the point of posting links to the front page duplicate that compete with the original post in the forums?

I thought we were going to get more original content on the front page but sadly that doesn't seem to be the case.
