Nokia Lumia 900 spotted, we go hands-on

Also present during Smart’s launch of the Lumia 710 was the Lumia 900 which we managed to pry off the hands of Nokia executive Mike Smith. At first glance we’d forgive you if you though it was an N9 (or a Lumia 800) as it has the same unibody polycarbonate body as the devices we mentioned. Possibly one of the biggest changes you’ll notice with the Lumia 900 is size – it’s a bit bigger than the N9 and the Lumia 800 and has a far larger 4.3-inch AMOLED capacitive touchscreen.

As it’s part of Nokia’s Lumia series of devices, the Lumia 900 obviously runs on Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango). Curiously, it’s also one of the few flagship devices in the world that doesn’t use a dual-core or quad-core processor, opting instead to use a Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon processor chugging along at 1.4 GHz.

The green cover you see on the smartphone is a silicon case that helps protect it from drops and other damage.

The Nokia Lumia 900 wi

There’s no word on what plan the Lumia 900 will fall under, but a source close to the matter mentioned that the Lumia 900 will launch in May and would be exclusive to the telco for only 2 months.
