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.

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.
Lumia 900 vs Limia 800
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.
Sony (was SonyEricsson) has been reported to be in development of a Windows Phone for a while now and it appears the rumours are true as a prototype SonyEricsson Windows Phone has appeared on good old eBay.
With today wrapping up the 2012 Mobile World Congress, there are no more surprises left to uncover. A month’s worth of rumors, stabs in the dark, and wishful thinking can be laid to rest and we can begin discussing what it is we learned at the MWC regarding WP and 2012. There was some good news, ”could have done without” news, 2 new devices, and even an announcement of a long awaited app that made its way to the WP Marketplace during the trade show. If you were hoping for multiple devices to be unveiled, well you’re going to have to wait a little longer. Read on to get all the WP news from the 2012 MWC…
PocketNow have leaked pictures of the, as yet unannounced, entry level Lumia 610 mobile phone from Nokia. The budget handset is rumored to have a 3 MegaPixel camera and a tiny 3.2″ screen with an interchangable rear panel, much like the bigger Lumia 710. No other details have yet been leaked so we will only have to wait a little while longer.
Nokia have put a lot of effort into their marketing campaigns, by running TV adverts and program sponsorship. Australia will start seeing “The Amazing Everyday” adverts starting on 1st March and running for a whole month, to promote the Lumia product launch. I have no doubt that Nokia will push the boat out in this market, Just as they have everywhere else.
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…
Nokia are announcing new handsets at Mobile World Congress 2012. one of which, the Nokia Lumia 610, has just passed through certification in Indonesia. The handset is going to be an entry level device with 256MB ram, a 5 MegaPixel camera, WiFi, Bluetooth, interchangable back panel, like the Lumia 710, unfortunately the onboard storage specifications are unknown. The handset will also be running the Tango update of Windows Phone. As the handset has not yet been officially announced, the specifications I have listed is to be placed firmly in the rumor category.
I recently wrote an article about ZTE announces more Windows Phones with the intention of ZTE entering into ‘high end’ handsets along with their budget model, the ZTE Tania. It seems that before they even started selling the device in the UK they are already slashing the prices to be even more competitive in the marketplace for Sim-Free handsets and cheap contract agreements with relatively short terms.
Nokia have released the Lumia 710 in the U.K., with the handset going free on contracts of £20.50 per month on a 24 month agreement with Vodafone, see links below for Nokia Lumia 710 on each carrier in the U.K.
Vodafone are the cheapest carrier by far for the Lumia 710, however you only get 100 cross network minutes included in the tariff which works out at around 3 minutes a day.
Nokia have left hints on its facebook page about the Lumia 800 is coming in white. No release date has been made available as yet, but early indications are its coming in the next few weeks. Slashgear have had a ‘hands on’ with the handset, It’s specs are identical to the other Nokia Lumia 800 phones, except for a white polycarbonate outer shell.
I told you about the rumor of the Nokia 900 with a 12 MegaPixel camera being released after AT&T’s exclusivity period, The handset has been seen on a dutch mobile site, The listing states the handset has the following specifications;
Fotocamera resolutie (Camera resolution) – 12 Megapixels Accu sterkte (battery strength) – 1830 mAh
At first glance you could be fooled into thinking it is a Windows Phone, but once you look more closely you can see that the pictures are indeed fake, I’ll tell you why I think they are fake…
Yesterday I told you of a new OS and a new codename HTC handset found on WP Bench statsite, It appears one of our readers Shinho has spotted a new Nokia handset being put through its paces, Its codename is ‘Nokia XXX‘ which doesnt tell us anything at present, only that they are testing a new handset.
Nokia have been seen testing new codename hardware, the last few were ‘Nokia 0000‘ (Confirmed as Nokia Lumia 710), ‘Nokia SeaRay‘ (Confirmed as Nokia Lumia 800), ‘Nokia 800C‘ (Perhaps a Nokia Lumia 800 variant), and the latest codename device ‘Nokia XXX‘ (Could this be the Lumia 900?).
With all the talk about Nokia and their flagship Lumia Windows Phones, They have now released a photo album showing their Lumia 800 handsets in production on their Facebook page, Nice work Nokia, Pictures like this are amazing!! The entire album is after the break…
Earlier, I posted an article on Carphone Warehouse offering pre-orders and then shortly afterwards Carphone Warehouse pulls the pre-order site, Well I have found more evidence of the Nokia Lumia 900 will be released throughout the world.
