Nokia Lumia 900 collects the hardware at CES with numerous awards
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.

I hope Verizon gets one soon and not 3-6 months from now. I would love to have a windows phone for Verizon. Preferrably Nokia.. Just give us the Lumia 900 for now till the dual core ones come out!

I don't think that Verizon will have Lumia 900. Maybe Lumia 800. AT&T got the Lumia 900 and will be exclusive in U.S. I'm sure that a international version will be launched, a unlocked version for U.S, I don't think so.

If it sells well at At&t, then we can assume it has a positive future.

I'm impressed with the phone and some of the apps that Nokia has created for the Windows phones! Good luck to Nokia in the U.S. smartphone market!!!

Congratulations to both Nokia and Microsoft.! The Lumina 900 looks to be an excellent device, especially for first time smartphone users. Screen size is big enough, supports 4G LTE, has a FFC, and Windows Phone 7 is a very fluid OS.

The Lumia 900 is the only device that has ever made me want a Nokia again. But I have Galaxy Nexus and even a quad core 16 megapixel WP7 Nokia wouldnt make me leave ICS :P I really hope they do good by this beautiful device.

this is some bs.
I smell something fishy here.
What's this device got over titan 2?
How does the 160 gram brick even compare, for example, with xperia ion that has double the processing power, expandable memory, larger HD screen, far better camera?
every high end android just trumps this phone.

"every high end android just trumps this phone."
In another reality perhaps.
Either way, the awards are going to the fresh design of the phone, and not the OS. I've never seen an Android device have a fresh style, the only one that comes close is the Droid Razr.

Every high end android is just another dull-looking plastic box with a hyped OS. I have an HTC Desire with Gingerbread, and both the phone and the OS is the worst crap I've ever laid my hands on. Even Nokia Belle is light years ahead of Android (though ICS looks improved), while WP7 and IOS are way ahead of Belle again.
Android is basically just a free OS made for tweens to run on cheap phones that all look the same. But hey, those droids must be fantastic when it's your first phone, and goes well with those braces.

i saw a sample picture taken by the titan 2 and it looks crappy even with 16mpx... nokia n8 still has the best camera phone out there...

This or Titan 2 ? I noticed that titan 2 is thicker

Lumina Vaporware.. The 18th came and went and No Lumina 900 from Nokia... Just another way to tick off potential customers and loose market.
Several commercial entities are reported to have waited until March 18th and when the phone did not produce itself, (Surprise.. Isn’t this how Nokia blew it sales several years ago with other vaporphones) have re-up'd their two year contracts with different models. Leaking a date to hype up marketing and failing to follow through with that date is the best way to lose loyalty and potential customers. You would have thought Nokia would have learned its lesson by now but obviously it did not.... Now all these geeks *me included) that had to have a new phone and held out with superglue, duct tape, or older models snagged up from ebay as temp devices were left with no other choice but to re-up their contracts with different phones. Way to lose customer loyalty and a potential comeback in to the market Nokia.... Fail. SO Nokia, at the least before you cause yourself more damage and humiliation, push an official press release to announce launch date before you push away more potential customers..
What should have been your reclaim to fame is not in the IT world being looked at as how will Nokia handle this damage control from this new disaster….
The glory is over, and the vaporware phone damage for the phone that did not release on reported dates falters and damage control begins… Nokia, listen, You have completely turned off a large group of potential customers, and the longer you hold private, the real release date (if there is even a Lumina 900 to be sold, who knows at this point) the more customers and potential buyers you will lose…..
Not following through with touted release dates, does not make smartphone users WANT to wait longer. It makes them resentful and makes them want to immediately switch product brands.. Apparently Nokia still hasn’t figured that out…
