Nokia’s Lu­mia 900 up to speed

Enterprise - - Business tools -

Nokia Lu­mia 900 is a Win­dows Phone 7.5-pow­ered smart­phone un­veiled by Nokia at Con­sumer Elec­tron­ics Show 2012. It has 4G LTE sup­port, 4.3″ dis­play and a ClearBlack AMOLED 800×480 ca­pac­i­tive touch­screen. It also fea­tures a one piece poly­car­bon­ate body and is avail­able in black, cyan and white. The Nokia Lu­mia 900 is a heav­ily bor­rowed de­sign from the Lu­mia 800 and Nokia N9 that pre­ceded it.

Us­abil­ity

The Lu­mia 900 is pow­ered by a 1.4GHz sin­glecore Qual­comm pro­ces­sor and 512MB of RAM. The pro­ces­sor has no trou­ble push­ing around the Win­dows Phone 7.5 Metro in­ter­face. Users have found the fast and fluid in­ter­face a joy to nav­i­gate and it pro­vides a very dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence nav­i­gat­ing a long list of apps than other smart­phone plat­forms.

The live tiles that can be pinned to the home­screen work well for pro­vid­ing clearly vis­i­ble in­for­ma­tion and quick ac­cess to cer­tain app fea­tures, and Win­dows Phone’s ex­ten­sive in­te­gra­tion with so­cial net­works like Face­book, Twit­ter, and LinkedIn makes the phone feel very con­nected with your so­cial cir­cle.

Call­ing & Data

Nokia has in­cluded its ESPN and App High­lights apps with the Lu­mia 900, and there are a num­ber of AT&T ser­vices as well. The user can unin­stall any of the pre-loaded AT&T apps if de­cide not to use, which is a new ad­di­tion. Ad­di­tion­ally, the user can in­stall Nokia’s free Drive, Maps, and Trans­port apps from the Win­dows Phone Mar­ket­place to add great nav­i­ga­tional fea­tures to the Lu­mia 900.

Apps & App Store

The Lu­mia 900 is the first Nokia to fea­ture LTE sup­port, and it is one of the first Win­dows Phone smart­phones with LTE. The Lu­mia 900 also has 21Mbps HSPA+ sup­port, so even if the user is not in an area cov­ered by AT&T’s LTE, re­spectable net­work speeds are still ac­ces­si­ble.
