Camera_HTC_Titan_2_vs_Lumia_900

We have seen multiple Lumia 900 Reviews and there was a mixed feeling about the camera and batterylife on the device another device that could probably take the limelight from the lumia 900 is the HTC Titan 2, but with dull marketing effort from HTC, the device has hardly generated any sort of interest for itself. But with some serious specs and a 16 MegaPixel camera this device can’t be ignored for long.

Is the Lumia 900 camera a let-down and how is the battery life on the Lumia 900 ?

April 4, 2012 | 6

As the press is given the go ahead to push out the Nokia Lumia 900 reviews we have seen a lot of the major publications push out their review for this device that is hyped to be the best Windows Phone till date. So lets have a look at what these folks had to say about the device.

Daniel Rubino from wpcentral

Solid 8MP rear camera and outstanding 1MP front camera make the Lumia 900 a great video phone…Battery life for the Lumia 900 is claimed to be 7 hours talk with 300 hours standby. We found in our testing the phone to last easily a full day of use though you’ll still want to charge at night. In a pinch though, you could easily go a day and half without a charge.

Um Excuse Me, My Name Is The HTC Titan™ II

April 3, 2012 | 7

April 8th, the day in which the Nokia Lumia 900 introduces itself to the US Market via AT&T. There are a lot of consumers here in the states, who have been waiting for this day to arrive. This article won’t be about that however. Same date, same carrier, but a different story though. With no big promotion, no people clamoring for its launch, front page on AT&T’s website, heck not even on its own OEM’s front page on their website, the HTC Titan™ II will launch on April 8th along with the Lumia 900. While kind of sad, it actually offers encouragement, the US market is showing Microsoft that they think WP is good, just not on a recycled Android device.

Lumia 719

Around 3 weeks back, just prior to the 2012 Mobile World Congress, we reported about the Nokia Lumia 719 and it passing its Bluetooth SIG. While we all hoped that this would be one of the announced models at the 2012 MWC, that was not to be the case. However, the Nokia Lumia 719 is back in the limelight. The official Chinese government radio management agency has listed this mysterious Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 900 as passing its certification and will be joining the HTC Titan as the first Windows Phones to be marketed in the enormous Chinese wireless market. It is not known which build the 719 will be running, however, I would have to believe it’s Tango.

Finally, Australia Getting Yummy 2nd Generation Windows Phone Love!

There have been several countries that have been left behind when it comes to second generation Windows Phones. Canada is now confirmed to get 2nd generation support from Microsoft, by receiving the HTC Radar, Nokia 710 and 800. That left Australia as one of the larger countries still remaining without any 2nd gen. devices. With device marketshare dropping as well as a slip in mobile browser marketshare, Australia will be getting the shot in the arm they so desperately need to positively reflect the currently small and slow international growth trend of WP. Fortunately for WP and Australia, the arrival of the 2nd generation devices has marked an immediate increase in both statistical markers across Europe. With an Australian market hungry to be unpdated to 2nd gen. devices, WP should see an improvement in sales with 2 new models on the way. Read on past the break to find out which models, where, and when…
