Nokia 900 a.k.a Ace accidentally pictured on Christmas cards?
Some of the notable attributes of this photo verses the Lumia 800 is a front facing camera, a camera button that is placed a bit higher, an AT&T logo, and a 4G icon. While nothing is officially on the books, rumors point to a release on AT&T on March 18th, 2012.

Well once again I'm not that impressed. It's just way too much wasted space on the top and bottom of the screen. This makes the screen look smaller than it probably is. Also, the design doesn't seem that far off from the Lumia 800.

Design ? Why to change something that is already perfect ?

The Lumia 800 is far from being a perfectly designed phone. The N9, which is the design they recycled for the Lumia 800, looked better because it had a larger screen with less wasted space and it was the first to look like it. Then Nokia came out with the Lumia 800 which all they did was take the exact design of the N9 and made it worse by having wasted space and a smaller screen. I mean when you have those thick areas above and below the screen it makes the screen look smaller than it actually is. And there is no use for those two spaces anyways. Nothing is being taken up by it, and it sure isn't because of the hardware underneath it. Not to mention the Lumia 800 was 12.1 mm thick so it wasn't exactly sleek. And now you look at this thing and it looks pretty similar to the 800. I mean people get onto HTC for having the same looking phones, but I think that should go to Nokia.

I could be wrong about this though. I will admit you can't see the full phone in these three shots so you don't get an exact eye for the styling, but if it has that wasted space I saw on the Lumia 800 you can count me out.

I still consider Lumia 800 two levels above any Samsung, LG or Motorola high end phone design-wise. RAZR or Prada 3 design are way too overrated. SE has some really nice phones, but still no match for N9/Lumia 800 design imo.
Talking about design recycling... iPhone 4S came 16 months after iPhone 4 with the same design... N9 was launched in September, so it's only 4 months ago. And most importantly, Lumia 900 is not successor to N9 or Lumia 800, they are targeted to different customers at same time, so the design will be NEW for every customer, unlike in iPhones case, where people were upgrading from 4 to 4S and were whining about getting the same more then year old design.
lastly, since Lumia 900 will have bigger screen size, there's high chance it will also be considerably thinner than Lumia 800.

My beef wasn't so much with the design recycling, but rather that they took the design and made it worse than what it was. I like the N9 design but not the Lumia 800 design because they added an inch of wasted space for those capicitive buttons when they didn't have to do so.

Maybe the card was a Happy New Year card? 2011 was not exactly a year to celebrate for Nokia.

In a little over a week we will all know the truth. I was betting on Nokia to give us a great
mango smart phone and I was vindicated. I can/t wait to OWn one. I am just sad Verizon does not have it now I have to go AT & T for the smart phone I want

All we need is a nice T-Mobile logo on this phone and voila! I'm all in. Here's hoping for something great at CES for T-Mobile and the other carriers not named ATT. If Windows Phone is fighting for market share as they say, stockpiling all the good phones on ATT is not really going to help. It just doesn't make sense. Get great phones on all carriers. Boom! 2012.

Very interesting (AT&T looks like a brazilian operator named Vivo monopolizing the Windows Phone), the device looks beautiful I guess that it will have beautifull and striking colors like N9 and Lumia 800. Nice Job Nokia!!
