Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T announced, brings high hopes for Windows Phone's proliferation in the US
The Nokia Lumia 900 sports a 4.3" WVGA AMOLED display with ClearBlack technology, polycarbonate unibody in different colors, 1.4GHz Snapdragon APQ8055 chipset, 16GB of internal memory and 1830mAh battery, good for 7 hours of talk time in 3G mode.
It sports swanky 8MP camera functionality, aided by the Carl Zeiss optics with f2.2/28mm lens, and features a tech called "double wide mode", for extra scene width going into your frame. Video capture, however, is still HD 720p at 30fps. There is thankfully a front-facing cam as well, with the Tango video calling app preloaded.
The phone weighs 5.6 ounces (160g), and is 5 x 2.7 x .45 inches (127.8 x 68.5 x 11.5 mm) in dimensions, the thinnest Lumia so far. The 900 will be available in black and cyan colors initially, although we've seen renders of it in burgundy.

hope this goes international...i've a lumia800, beautiful fantastic handset, but despite its 3.7inch display (larger than the iphone), the display itself is a bit narrow and i keep typing errors, and rarely on my iphone4...

thats because ios has really good keyboard mechanics

True. I actually thought WP7's keyboard was better than iOS's prior to Mango. After Mango it seemed to become a little less accurate.

nice. this is the high end phone we need-- not much more to ask for except front-facing camera?

Its a great start for sure. cant wait for the apollo update so they can get dual core and 1080p cameras. Even if it doesnt need the dual core functionality so much for anything but games, if PROPERLY implemented it can make some great battery savings over a single core.

All colors are enticing but I kinda drooled on the Red/Magenta one. . .

This one could be it, really seems like the full package.
4.3" screen (this size seems to be in high demand)
Carl Zeiss optics, 28mm wide angle lens, F2.2/2.4 (depending on the source)
FFC (not sure, but I believe so)
Nokia Lumia's beautiful design

Still looks as sweet as the early leak shots. Like an Ipod shaped candybar :) But come on, 512MB RAM?! You want to compete with the big dogs - I know dual and quad core is out for now, but instead of subsidizing carrier costs - shift those dollars into a 1GB RAM upgrade. You're so close Windows Phone...so close. Keep pushing.

"The most high-end Nokia Windows Phone was just announced exclusively for AT&T's LTE network"
I'm happy for AT&T but I don't think I like the sound of the word "exclusively" in that sentence!
How about the rest of us not in the AT&T orbit?
But I'm sure Nokia will put out, if not the Lumia 900, at least an iteration of it for the rest of the world!
