Lumia 900: The return of Nokia

Written by | Gadgets

A 4.3″ screen, Polycarbonate Unibody, HD video recording capability, front-facing camera, and other features that we have seen in the mobile giants Samsung and Apple are now found in the recently launched Nokia Lumia 900. The latest release that has bagged the Best of CES 2012 winner from CNET (as proudly represented on its website).

This seems to be a good Q2 for Nokia as it has now matured in the mobile world once again with its specifications that are more that what meets our eye (yes that transformer line). According to its website, it boasts a nice menu for hi-tech specs as seen below:

  • Internet

    Amazing speeds, Bing, Internet Explorer 9, HTML5, Wi-Fi

  • Design

    4.3″ AMOLED ClearBlack glass touchscreen, one-piece polycarbonate body, excellent antenna performance

  • Cameras

    8 MP main camera, Carl Zeiss optics, dual LED flash, Auto Focus, 1 MP front camera, video calling

  • Battery

    All day battery life, up to 8 hours talk time, up to 400 hours standby

  • Social

    Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, email, Chat, SMS

With a specification lineup this heavy, we could expect this windows smartphone to  be a big bang for the buck. Suprisingly it is!! At 27,990 PHP Only (quoted from another Blogsite)

Though I am personally an android user, I see this Lumia a big contender rather than a pushover. A few months back Nokia’s success went to a sudden halt with the surge of the newest Samsung phones (Galaxy S2) and Apple phones (iPhone 4S), but the lumia looks like it’s ready to fight back with it’s new flagship phone.

The Lumia even comes with a 5-star energy rated micro USB charger (not really sure if all other phones come with the same), a Windows 7.5 operating system, and a battery that has a standby time of 300hours (that’s if you can afford to keep it idle that long without using it’s other cool features).

Though it does come close to the Galaxy S3 and the iPhone 4S, it has its own unique design that could not be mistaken for the previously mentioned units.

If we were to ask if this is finally what Nokia has up its sleeve, we could say that there should be more of these designs coming out soon if they want to capture back the market.

and as we all know, Nokia has once been seen as the phone with the “user-friendliest” interface. Now we don’t want sophistication and technology taking that bit away right?
