The fine folks over at The Verge have learned that Nokia’s delayed entry into the US market with their slew of new Windows Phones could be because they want to hit the ground running with LTE-capable devices. At this moment, Windows Phone Mango doesn’t support LTE but with a few tweaks it could be possible.
Nokia believes that the Lumia 800 is the “first real Windows Phone.” It features a 3.7-inch AMOLED display with Nokia’s ClearBlack technology. Powering the device is a single-core 1.4GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Around the back the Lumia 800 houses an 8 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and a dual-led flash. The camera can also record video in 720p HD.
Take this rumor with a grain of salt but the idea of an LTE-ready Nokia Lumia 800 coming to the US is quite exciting. Hopefully this rumor holds water and we will learn more about Nokia’s plans soon. Would anybody purchase this device if it did come to AT&T sometime in the near future?
