It’s that time of the year again, when we’re both happy and sad, excited and disappointed all at the same time. Last year’s Mobile World Congress was all about three things: Android, 3D and speed offered by emerging dual-core processors. This year’s show was not that much different at all, if you come to think of it.
It’s safe to assume that everyone who was there — or following our MWC coverage — understands that, again, Android was all over the place. With or without Ice Cream Sandwich on smartphones or tablets, the Google platform [...]
While Australia and Canada are preparing for Nokia Lumia 900 pre-orders, us in the States are still left wondering which one of the rumors to believe: first we had March 18 and more recently we’ve heard of an April 22 launch date.
A new set of rumors has surfaced which adds even more variables to the equation: “very soon” and April 8 followed by 9. People (or probably just a single person) posting on various websites claim to have a connection with AT&T which brought it to their knowledge that the Lumia 900 will be available on April 8.
Many seem to want the Nokia Windows Phone flagship. The Lumia 900 will be on pre-orders next week with Canada’s Rogers, as we reported earlier, and it is now Australian e-tailer MobiCity’s turn to put up a dedicated pre-order page.
According to the page you’ll find at the source link below, those who want to secure a unit have the opportunity of choosing between the white, black and cyan flavors. With no other accessories and standard warranty it is listed for AU$799.00 (around US$845). This is of course a no-contract price and once carriers will start having [...]
The Nokia Lumia 900 is not a new phone by itself; AT&T announced it on its 4G Windows Phone line-up at the beginning of the year while at CES but Nokia was kind enough to announce the international version too at this year’s MWC in Barcelona last month.
The fact that the Lumia 900 will be heading to Canada is nothing new by itself either with some rumors talking about a May, others about an April availability. However, Rogers took it to Twitter to let everyone know that those who are looking forward to Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone will be able to pre-order the [...]
Just when will AT&T end up releasing Nokia’s Lumia 900, the first Windows Phone handset to feature high-speed LTE data? Shortly after the phone’s official announcement at CES, a leaked AT&T roadmap suggested that users would finally be able to get their hands on the 900 this month, on March 18. As that date has been getting closer, we saw the Lumia 900 get its FCC certification, clearing the way for its release, and more recently witnessed AT&T putting up a new “Coming Soon” teaser, making us think the 900 was nearly here. Today a new rumor [...]
All the recent rumors seem to agree on the fact that Windows Phone enthusiasts should be looking out for March 18 if they want to grab either the AT&T HTC Titan II or the Nokia Lumia 900. Both phones were announced at CES and are part of the carrier’s 4G line-up, running Windows Phone 7.5 Mango.
AT&T’s website features a fairly large “Coming Soon” teaser, though it talks about “an exciting new addition” to the line-up. Microsoft’s website on the other hand seems to feature both phones with a coming soon tag, which should be a [...]
In just a few weeks, we’re expecting Nokia to launch the first-ever LTE Windows Phone handset on AT&T’s network with its Lumia 900. Nothing’s set in stone, but we’ve seen March 18 fielded as one potential release date. With the phone’s release creeping on up, Nokia’s getting a few formalities out of the way, like seeing to it that the 900 gets its FCC certification. This afternoon the agency published the 900’s documents, including a manual and an assortment of images.
As a smartphone destined for AT&T’s new LTE network, [...]
The Nokia Lumia 610, alongside the Lumia 900, are the two new Windows Phones Nokia launched at this year’s MWC and we’ve taken a separate look at both of them with the occasion of our hands-on videos.
This time we are comparing the two against each other and then we throw in the HTC Titan and the last year’s LG Optimus 7 so that you can have a better look at what to expect if you are preparing to grab a Lumia 610 Check out the comparison video below.
We’ve previously seen the hands-on video with the newly announced Nokia Lumia 900 — the international version of the AT&T Lumia 900 — and this time we’re checking the phone out side-by-side with other Windows Phones.
Probably comparable in size with the Lumia 900 is the HTC Titan (even if it is the first Titan and not the second one, on AT&T’s 4G LTE). As you can see in the video below, they’re pretty similar in dimensions but then again the Nokia design shines compared to the rather dull HTC (though some of you might disagree; it [...]
Many hoped that the Lumia 900, originally launched as an AT&T 4G LTE Windows Phone at CES, will arrive in an international form for European users and not only, and it looks like the prayers have been recently answered.
Sporting the same specs as its American cousin, the European Lumia 900 packs a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED screen with WVGA resolution, 512MB of RAM, and 16GB of ROM. It shares the same looks as the Nokia N9, the Lumia 800 and, of course, the AT&T Lumia 900. Check for our hands-on below.
The budget-friendly Lumia 610 has been rumored for quite some time, and finally, Nokia has made the new Windows Phone 7.5 device official. It has a 3.7″ WVGA screen, 256MB RAM, and 8GB of storage space. The battery is a bit small at 1,300 mAh, though with a smaller screen, it should provide enough juice (in this case, 6.5 hours of talk time). Look for the Lumia 610 in Q2 for around $250 in blue, white, pink, and black.
Nokia also announced the availability of their flagship Lumia 900 as a world phone with DC-HSPA+ for twice the speed of HSPA+. Beyond data, the specs are [...]
We’ve gotten wind of the names, but not the details, of the handsets Nokia reportedly plans on revealing later this month at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress. The six devices are supposedly split evenly among smartphones — two Windows Phones and a Symbian — and three S60 S40 featurephones. Specifically, we’re now expecting the global version of the Lumia 900, an entry-level handset dubbed the Lumia 610, and the Nokia 808 PureView, which has been rumored as a full touchscreen successor to the camera-centric N8. Also tipped were the Asha 302, Asha 203, and [...]
As has been rumored, Nokia is indeed bringing a pair of Windows Phones to Mobile World Congress, a global version of the Lumia 900 and a new entry-level handset, the Lumia 610. Specs on the 900 are well-known, but details on the the 610 remain elusive; we’re pretty sure that it sports a five-megapixel camera, which casts some doubt on the purported specifications making the rounds which give it just a three-megapixel shooter. Apparently the 610 will come in four different shades, while the 900 will be available in white, black, and cyan.
Nokia is also expected to announce [...]
The Nokia Lumia 800 was GSM only until now — not that we didn’t know about CDMA plans. The picture above, and the ones below, seem to feature the new CDMA Nokia Lumia 800 which will be landing in China pretty soon.
It looks like the Lumia 800 will be available in China via China Telecom starting March. It will come in black, white and cyan color flavors and will feature a CDMA radio which will allow for operation on the carrier’s network. The Nokia Lumia 710 is also expected in the same timeframe and the Lumia 900 — most probably that device Nokia showed [...]
Users were able to pre-order the AT&T Nokia Lumia 900 at brick-and-mortar Microsoft Stores, according to the information we’ve heard at the beginning of February. Exactly one week after hearing the news Microsoft has reportedly stopped taking pre-oders.
Despite the fact that the rumored launch date for the phone is March 18, there are several reports making the rounds on the internet according to which the AT&T Lumia 900’s availability date is getting close. Of course, these are also fueled by the recent Microsoft move to stop taking pre-orders for the [...]
Nokia officially unveiled the Lumia 800 in glossy white yesterday, adding one more color to the range. What Nokia didn’t unveil in either white or any other color was an international version of the AT&T Lumia 900, announced at this year’s CES.
This could very well be a teaser — though we believe it is not as the picture is labeled Nokia Lumia 800 — or someone making a terrible mistake (for which we are thankful): Nokia’s Facebook page features a white and very much international version of the Lumia 900. If you have any doubts about that [...]
We’ve been hearing rumors of an international version of Nokia’s Lumia 900 for weeks, which would supposedly arrive as the Lumia 910. While the assumption thus far has been that the 910 would be largely identical to the 900, we have heard claims that Nokia would be giving the 910 a little boost to its imagery capabilities, outfitting the phone with a twelve-megapixel sensor instead of the eight-megapixel component the 900 will receive. Unfortunately, it looks that change won’t end up happening, at least according to Nokia’s own Damian Dinning.
With a job [...]
Stephen Elop went on stage on January 9 at CES to unveil the Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T. While there was no official information about availability, later reports claimed a March release and an allegedly leaked roadmap indicated March 18 specifically.
If the tip we’ve received in our inbox turns out to be true then Microsoft brick and mortar Stores are taking pre-orders for the AT&T-bound Nokia Lumia 900. One specific store, in Costa Mesa, California, is allegedly glad to take $25 from you despite for the fact that a final price is yet unknown. After handing over [...]
For as much excitement as Nokia’s initial stab at Windows Phone devices caused, especially regarding the Lumia 800, there was no lost enthusiasm for the announcement of the follow-up Lumia 900 at this year’s CES. At least, AT&T subscribers had reason to be happy, upon receiving word that the carrier would be Nokia’s exclusive launch partner for the phone. The rest of us started to grow a little concerned wondering just when we’d get a chance to pick up the handset; would the AT&T exclusive be US-only, with other plans for international markets? That [...]
We’ve been keeping our eye on the progress Windows Phone has been making towards a launch in China. With language support in place, we’ve been waiting for news of the operating system’s official Chinese debut. Nokia has helped provide our most recent estimate of when just such an event may occur, announcing its intent to bring its Windows Phone hardware to the Chinese market sometime in the first half of the year. We still don’t have a better guess at the date, but advertisements show Chinese retailers already accepting pre-orders for Windows Phone handsets, [...]
Nokia made its Q4 2011 financial numbers public and the company is reporting a solid fourth and closing 2011 quarter performance. Q4 net sales are around $13.6 billion (EUR 10.0 billion) and 2011 2011 net sales reported are roughly $50.96 billion (EUR 38.7 billion).
There were 19.6 million smartphones that Nokia managed to sell in the last quarter compared to 28.6 million the year before. However, Nokia shifted its principal strategy to adopt Windows Phone back in February of last year.
Out of the 19.6 million smartphones sold in Q4 2011, Nokia sold “well over 1 [...]
We’ve had it on pretty good authority that Nokia’s eagerly-awaited Lumia 900 will first be available on AT&T this March. That much, at least, was revealed through the Nokia Developer Newsletter earlier this month. As for some more specific information, a couple of separate rumors suggested that March 18 would mark the beginning of 900 sales. That date is looking even more likely now, after a leaked AT&T roadmap also identified it as marking the Lumia 900’s launch.
BGR claims to have received this roadmap from a “trusted source”, and while [...]
We just spent some time thinking about the fate of Nokia’s Lumia 900, and what the future might hold for the smartphone once it’s allowed to leave the stable of exclusive launch partner AT&T. Instead, might Nokia have another, similar model ready to go for Europe and the rest of the world? That’s what we’re left to wonder now, upon hearing rumors of the launch plans for the Lumia 910.
This story comes courtesy of Eldar Murtazin. While he’s been known to provide some useful news in the past, his more recent claims have failed to pan-out. As a [...]
Yesterday, we showed you what appeared to be evidence of plans to release the Nokia Lumia 900 in the UK. Despite only hearing from Nokia regarding a US launch on AT&T, when retailer Carphone Warehouse put up a pre-registration page for info on the phone’s arrival, we started getting optimistic that there really were plans for an international release of the phone that just hadn’t been made public yet. Today, though, that page is down, forcing us to ask questions about the information it provided.
Several possibilities are worth considering, from Nokia asking the [...]
