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.
