    Last time we looked, Nokia Music was updated to version 2.0 with UI and audio improvements. This time around, the application has been updated to version 2.1. The changelog includes general improvements in performance and responsiveness, Nokia Music Unlimited (only available in selected countries and on certain devices) as well as controls for shuffle and repeat in the music player. If you have a Nokia Windows Phone and you use the application you might want to consult your Marketplace on the device for the refresh. Source: WindowsPhoneITA Via: WMPowerUser

    On March 26, AT&T officially announced the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II, both introduced at this year's CES as Windows Phones taking advantage of the carrier's 4G LTE network. The availability date announced was April 8 and, as such, both phones are now available. The Nokia Lumia 900 -- with its 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1830 mAh battery, eight-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics, f/2.2 and 28mm wide angle focal length -- goes for $99.99 on a two-year contract (and $449.99 for the phone only). The HTC Titan II -- packing the largest camera currently available on a ...

    Last night at 7pm, Nokia and Nicki Minaj took over Times Square in New York City to announce the new Lumia 900 as the end of the "smartphone beta test." We were there to check it out, of course, and it was a lot of fun. The VIP party at the RLounge was cool and all, but it didn't have enough windows to see the show from, so we stuck with the outdoor viewing. Using the latest CGI technology the team behind the massive Hollywood blockbuster, i-Robot, created one of the world's largest LED displays. Nokia took control of nine of the square's famous electronic screens to ensure the crowd were ...

    The Smartphone Beta Test website, in case you had any doubts, does indeed belong to Nokia; actually it is the company's ad campaign for the Lumia 900 on AT&T, an ad campaign according to which all smartphone users in the past five years were beta testers. With the website now live, we understand from the commercials that all those moments when your smartphone lost reception or took bad pictures was just a beta test; its results are now here and Nokia wants you to believe that it's the Lumia 900. Head over to the source link to find the videos as well as a map to find the closest AT&T ...

    We had a few moments to put the recently-announced HTC EVO 4G LTE up against the new Windows Phone-powered Nokia Lumia 900 at the EVO 4G LTE launch event in New York. These phones are very different. The EVO 4G LTE runs with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and utilizes HTC's Sense 4.0 interface, while the Lumia 900 is running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango with a small handful of software additions made by Nokia. The Lumia 900 is certainly heavier than the EVO 4G LTE, despite being less tall and wide. The Lumia 900 also has a less precise screen due to its WVGA resolution, but if you like the deep ...

    First off let's compare the pricing. The Lumia 900 is available from AT&T for $99 with a new contract, or $49 from Walmart, or $0.01 from Amazon. The Galaxy Nexus is much more expensive at $299.99 from Verizon with a new 2 year contract, though it can also be found from Amazon for $99. Next, let's talk about LTE speeds and battery life. I've found the AT&T LTE network to be a bit slower than Verizon's LTE network, however AT&T seems to be more stable. I've seen the Galaxy Nexus lose its connection and never get it back numerous times. For battery life, the Galaxy Nexus is pretty good as ...

    Nokia's Lumia 900 has done what seemed improbable for a Windows Phone: the black version has topped the charts in Amazon's "Best Sellers in AT&T" category, with the cyan variant holding down the number-three spot as of this writing. For a device running the least-popular smartphone platform, that's not half bad. Those ratings are based on pre-orders, since the device hasn't yet been released. And the buzz surrounding that pre-order is doubtless the source of some of the device's early success: while Amazon is known for excellent pricing on some pre-release hardware, it's still relatively ...

    Chris Weber, President of Nokia Inc. North America, has received lots of emails about this new website called Smartphone Beta Test, and this means that the ball is rolling. April 8 is the day when the Nokia Lumia 900 will be available on AT&T's network but the countdown on the website seems to refer to a somewhat earlier date. At a first glance, there's no indication that we're looking at an official Nokia website. However, if you take a closer look at the top left, you can almost see the Nokia logo under that black chalk. That, and some references to Nokia's website found inside the web ...

    Aside from the fact that the Nokia Lumia 900 is already on back-order with Amazon Wireless -- the phone officially went on pre-order on March 30 with an in-store availability date announced for April 8 -- it appears that it is doing quite well. As you can see in the image above (and at the source link below), we not only have one, but two Nokia Lumia 900 phones on the top spots of Amazon's best-selling AT&T devices. Both the black and cyan variants rule the list and this is just three days after the official pre-orders received the green light. Furthermore, Amazon's list of best-selling ...

    We started-off the week by learning of the official AT&T launch plans for the Nokia Lumia 900. That included news of the phone's April 8 arrival and the opportunity to get your pre-order in starting today, March 30. For those of you who were really impatient, we saw the opportunity to get in an early pre-order with Microsoft a few days ago. If you were patient, though, now that pre-orders for the phone have gone widespread, we're already seeing the first big discount for the already-cheap Lumia 900, letting you grab one for half price. In order to secure a Lumia 900 for just about $50 ...

    The screenshots above come from Russia and they are allegedly snapped off of Nokia's upcoming TV application to soon grace Lumia Windows Phones. Nokia TV would nicely compliment an already interesting application offering that the Espoo-company is offering to its Windows Phone customers. According to the report, Nokia TV will allow for video show streaming on WiFi and Data from a searchable database of local network offerings. The first country to see the app will allegedly be Finland, with local stations like YLE, MTV3 and Nelopen being supported. There's no info on a specific release ...

    Back at the beginning of February, way before we had anything resembling a confirmed release date for the Nokia Lumia 900 on AT&T in the US, Microsoft decided to be a little proactive and start accepting pre-orders for the smartphone at its retail stores. For a brief time, you could put down $25 towards securing a 900 when the phones eventually arrived. Just a week later, Microsoft abruptly put a stop to these pre-orders, accepting no more and giving no explanation for the change of heart. With the 900's launch plans now official, Microsoft is re-opening pre-orders, giving you one last ...

    Many Windows Phone fans on AT&T were happy to find out that the carrier finally announced the availability date and contract price for the highly anticipated Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II. Thing is that the Lumia 900 is $100 cheaper on contract than the Titan II, which begs the question: why would you spend more? It turns out that the $100 difference between the two will still exist if you want to go with the phone only, without a contract. The Nokia Lumia 900 will reportedly go for $449.99 while the HTC Titan II will cost you $549.99. The same question remains: is the larger ...
