With about 20,000 new products displayed in Las Vegas this week, the awards are a very positive sign that the Nokia Lumia 900 was noticed at the show. Of course, the awards won at CES don't automatically convert into sales and success. Take the Palm Pre. Three years ago, the device and its webOS operating system stunned CES attendees who gave the phone the prestigious "Best of Show" and the future seemed bright for what was considered the first real competitor to the Apple iPhone. We all know how that story ended.
Nokia and AT&T hope that the awards and the press received by the Lumia 900 will convert into sales. But this is just the beginning of the process and we won't know whether the Nokia Lumia 900 lives up to its CES appearance until later this year.
