Nokia Lumia 900, Nokia Champagne surface in developers' records
We’re definitely impressed with the Nokia Lumia 800 - it’s a gorgeous Windows Phone handset standing out with its slightly convex forms, but when it comes to Nokia Windows Phone we’re still waiting for a true high-end device to capture our minds and hearts. The Nokia Lumia 900 might be just that. We’ve previously heard about this handset under the Nokia Ace codename and even expected to see it at Nokia World over a month ago.

Sadly, it didn’t make it there, but it did appear in a couple of other places like a Nokia Windows Phone ad which was then pulled down. Now, a Nokia Lumia 900 appears in the stats of news app Times of India. The publication has recorded nine sessions from the Lumia 900 in its stats and one from the Nokia Champagne, which may or may not be the same device.

Additionally, the apps stats show that it’s been accessed by a device running on a newer Windows Phone version, possibly Tango. Version 7.10.8725 is the newest WP version we’ve seen so far, and hopefully this means that the next big update to the platform is closer to reality.

The Lumia 900 is rumored to feature a 4.3” ClearBlack AMOLED screen and run on a 1.4 GHz single-core processor. It’s expected to have an 8-megapixel camera on the back and come in a 16 GB or 32 GB model.

This may work as long as it's not cheap plastic, and cost above the average $200-299 price point on a carrier.

They should rather wait for Windows Phone 8 for their next flagship smartphone, instead of launching something with specs over a year old. They should instead bring a slightly revised Lumia 800 to USA, with a front-facing camera, NFC and better battery life, as well as a lower price.
If those specs are true, then it is not worthy of the '900' branding.
8mp cameras are now becoming common on most new phones, and its sad that Nokia doesn't step it up, considering the cameras from the N8 and previous N-series.
And with the new 'S4' chips coming in a few months...

Not sure there is a difference between updating the 800 series now, or updating the 900 series later. I think the 900 series would sell better here and it makes sense to release it rather than wait. Besides, any Nokia released will be supported with updates.

But I agree with your idea- if you can wait until mid-year, than I would say do it. The hardware will be better, and the build will be designed for the next software. Not to mention Nokia has said Apollo will really shine on their devices.

Exciting can't wait until CES. 2012 Is going to be the year that will bring Nokia back or bury them for good.

I May not be popular by saying this but if it does not have a front facing camera many
people will not see it as a Nokia flagship phone but it is good enough for me. Metro tiles are best viewed on 4 inch or better smartphone size screens. 4.3 is a good sweet size for a windows smart phone. bring it on Nokia. The Americans will buy it
