Nokia are said to release their Lumia 900 smart phone this coming March in the United States. Other countries will get the new high tech phone shortly afterwards.
A newsletter was published on the Nokia Developer Website which read “It will become available exclusively through AT&T in March. With support for AT&T’s 4G LTE (Long-Term Evolution) network, the Nokia Lumia 900 Smartphone will offer high-performance web browsing with Microsoft Internet Explorer Mobile, as well as both video and audio streaming.”
Nokia highlighted the new smartphone at CES in Las Vegas, causing much discussion by analysts. Jan Dawson, an analyst for research and consulting firm Ovum wrote a statement which said “This device signals several things: firstly, that Nokia’s serious about the U.S., launching arguably the flagship Lumia device in the U.S. before the rest of the world. Secondly, that Nokia has the clout with Windows Phone to allow it to be first to market with an LTE device; and thirdly, that AT&T is now seriously into the business of offering LTE phones.”
Nokia are focusing on Windows Phone operating system to help improve their flagging sales, as consumers embrace iOs and Android devices.
Kitguru says: The new device will hopefully help drive some sales for Nokia this year.
