Some Nokia Lumia 900 pre-orders arrive; device is center of attention in Times Square
Some of those who had pre-ordered the flagship Windows Phone handset, the Nokia Lumia 900, were pleasantly surprised when their new phone arrived on Friday. The device was supposed to arrive on Sunday April 8th, the date of the official launch of the black and cyan version of the smartphone. The white model is set to be released on April 22nd. The Nokia Lumia 900 is priced to sell at $99.99 with a signed two-year pact via AT&T.

The Nokia Lumia 900 takes over Times Square

The Nokia Lumia 900 takes over Times Square

Meanwhile, the Nokia Lumia 900 was the guest of honor at a coming out party Friday night at New York's Times Square. The whole shindig took about 30 minutes and featured three songs from Nicki Minaj and a DJ spun some tunes. A giant LCD screen splashed a light show over the crowd just before the phone made its appearance.

Windows Phone fans are looking for a device that becomes the "must-have" breakout model for the OS the same way that the Motorola DROID started Androidmania in 2009. Ironically, it was the Motorola DROID that took over the displays in Times Square back in November 2009 to show off the Google Navigation feature on Android 2.0. Is this a hint of things to come for Microsoft's mobile OS?

I would seriously buy the 900 as another phone I can switch to whenever I am not using my Android, but I don't know of any good micro-SIM to SIM card adapters that I could use so I could interchange the devices on the fly. I have seen the adapters but they don't good reviews.

Either way, the Lumia 900 has to be one of the best looking devices out there and I can't wait to see what Windows Phone 8 brings. Who knows, I may fully switch to Windows if WP8 is as great as it's suppose to be.

This is how you build an efficient mobile platform

512 Ram = more than enough for efficient platform
Adreno 205 = runs everything so far
Flash = Apple does fine without it
Qualcom = whatever man, smooth and fast

First generation Windows Phone hardware is troucing every other multicore product.

I've been incredibly fortunate to have been carrying a lumia 900 for the past couple weeks, and I must say that that this phone really embodies what windows phone is and what it can do. I love this phone!

Got my cyan one yesterday afternoon. Loving it! Best mobile browser I've used, excellent keyboard, dedicated camera button with quick launch, comfortable and a joy to hold, screen looks nicer than on my Sensation (mostly with the browser, might be the font?). Sensation, oddly, seems to take better photos, which is surprising because the aperture is larger and not Carl Zeiss. Hoping a software update will help that. Low light shots show the greatest deficiencies. My fiancee is demanding that she gets it when I'm done playing with it (since I'm on T-Mobile) She loves it, and would replace her defective Torch 9800.

wow I am glad to see this because for Windows smart to make it they People have to know they exist I went to buy one from AT & T in radio shack there was nothing there to buy and at other places they are scarce. America is more into Androids and Iphones but I am Glad Windows smart phones are now Alive and well. Nokia has kept it's promous to give Windows7 series smart phones a Model worth buying. the reason why it's specs are not that high is to give People a chance to buy an affordable smart phone. The nokia 900 is without doubt the best bang for the buck smart phone on the planet period. 50 to 100 dollars on contract. it cost zero dollars for first time AT and T customer The Nokia lumia 900 performs well , looks and feels good and wont cost a Person an arm and a leg to get. that's a win baby

The Metro UI is something great that I didn't expect from Microsoft. I hope sincerely Nokia Lumia 900 will be successful.

i just returned mine. the battery frickin sucks bad. i fully charged it and with gps on for two hours and a little web surfing was almost dead in 5 hours. the camera is also horrendous. phone is heavy bulky . good things were exceptional internet and nokia maps. phone sound and clarity very good. i like windows and the smoothness for sure but a lot of apps simply arent there yet. and lte is actually slower in charlotte than hspa. so think hard before getting this phone. one last thing, the mini sim card door is very cheap and kinda pops out loosely when closed. it is not good quality. i feel i really loved this phone this phone initially but after the excitement passes you realize that this thing was not ready for release yet. maybe next fall. i am not bashing windows. just letting others know my recent experience.

This is how you advertise.! Go Nokia Lumia 900, go.! Windows Phone is such a good OS, but the market is overrun with Androids and the popularity of the iPhone/iOS. I want to see Windows Phone to succeed, specifically this phone because it may cause Sprint to actually pick up another Windows Phone. The HTC Arrive is one of their best rated phones on the website by customers.! If you ask me, Sprint should definitely take up Nokia's offer and get one of their new Windows Phones.
