Report says Nokia Lumia 900 coming to T-Mobile in Q3 with 12MP camera
posted by Alan F. / Jan 15, 2012, 4:49 PM
According to the report, Verizon "probably" would be next on the list after T-Mobile to offer the Lumia 900, followed "possibly" by Sprint, although those two carriers haven't exactly been flooding the market with Windows Phone handsets. It's an interesting piece of gossip to chew over during an NFL Playoff Sunday afternoon, especially if you are a T-Mobile customer.

Even if there will be 12MP camera unit, i doubt the quality will be comparable with N8.

Because the sensor area on the N8 is about 3 times bigger than that found on camera phones like the iPhone 4S (1/3.2). It requires a bigger, deeper space to mount...hence the large module found on the N8. Sure the Xenon flash and AF CZ optics also require space...but it's really the massive sensor that drove the design req. The N8 sensor is actually bigger than those found on quality point and shoot cameras. Specifically, it has a 1/1.18 dimension while others, like on the Lumix compact zoom cameras are usually 1/2.33.

Why would verizon want that. Nokia already said they were making a phone exclusive to each carrier. So why would anyone doubt that verizon would get anything less than HD and a dual core. Support for the dual core and HD screen is already in the manufactures hands, so why not give verizon the best phone since they do have the best network.

Nice. I just wish the AT&T version would have a 12mp camera. TMOs customers are sooooo lucky.

it made me laugh on the article were it says to add insult to at&t customers the t-mobile version will have a 12 megapixel camera .. hmm wateva at&t made it official that it will get the htc titan with a 16 megapixel camera and the xperia ion with a 12 megapixel camera so ha take that t-mobile customers u aint the only one with a 12 mp camera phone. cuz us att customers will have 2 phones to choose from the titan 2 with a 16 mp camera or the xperia ion with a 12 mp camera.

OK, So the 900 as is, going to any other carrier is false. I was fortunate enough to be at CES and spoke to people from Nokia and MS and they told me the AT&T exclusivity is for the lifetime of the product, for all markets in which AT&T operates. In fact, except for the iPhone, this is something they insist on for all devices they carry (and they had it for the first iphone too if you remember). That 45 day exclusivity is very much false. As for a T-Mobile variant, with different hardware spec, and different name (Lumia 910 foe example) it's entirely possible. Such a device wouldn't vilate AT&T's exclusivity as it would be a different device. Also if Q3, hopefully it would come with Appollo or be upgradable to Appollo too. The only bit of skepticism here I have is to say if we haven't seen a new Symbian device with such a camera, don't expect a WP7 one with one. It is clear to me that NOkia's next N8 successor will be Symbian first, WP7 second as image processing software is more developed and advanced right now on Symbian than on Windows Phone.

Wow this is great especially if its true but like I keep saying, they continue to make customers play the waiting game. I'm willing to bet 10 high-powered Android devices will come to T-Mobile alone before this even becomes a reality. I really think people who bought first gen Windows phones (not on ATT) have been pushed to extreme limits waiting and waiting for the next great Windows Phone. That said, I'll keep my eyes open but by that time I will already have had my first child, and I'm not sure if I'll even be thinking about any phone at that point. Family first.
