Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's

The Lumia 900 is Nokia's most important smartphone launch ever. Microsoft and AT&T have a lot riding on this device, too, as its success will shape the future of Windows Phone in the US and beyond. With specs to spare, Nokia goes for the no-nonsense approach in with its flagship smartphone.

This is it. With the Lumia 900, Nokia is going for broke. This flagship Windows Phone from Nokia hits all the key specs for a modern smartphone: huge screen, powerful camera, support for 4G, and a modern, edgy design. With aggressive pricing from AT&T, the Nokia Lumia 900 is tempting for many reasons and poised to be a hit. If you're even marginally interested in a Windows Phone device, this is the one you should look at first.

A swing and a miss from Nokia

Compared to the N800, there are too many corners cut with this supposedly high-end device.

1. The screen has a really crappy bezel around it. This totally ruins the aesthetic of the phone. Quite frankly, this lack of attention to detail is what separates Apple from HTC, Samsung, etc. If Nokia is going to distinguish themselves, they need to pull out the stops on *all* of their hardware expertise and not just phone it in after they get 80% of the way there.

2. The tolerance of the SIM tray is pretty bad by iPhone 4s standards (which are super tight.) It always looks misaligned, though the dark color hides it, it looks pretty bad in the cooler colors.

3. The texture is a lot cheaper feeling than the N800. This isn't quite Samsung-gr...

Windows Phone sucks. It's a bitter pill to swallow but thats just the harsh reality. No one wants it. Put a refurb Galaxy S II next to this phone for only $9.99. Which one do you think the consumer is going to choose?

I really find the whole aesthe...

You're ridiculous. You actually think Apple is the high end of technology and the standard by which to compare other phones, when in fact they only make over priced middle of the road junk. You have to find a low end Samsung device to find one as poor...

Yeap. Even bigger fail for M$ with their crappy OS. M$ really needs to get out of the OS business. Nokia should have gone with Android.

Nokia missed the opportunity...

Unlike the iPhone that started off its life exclusive to AT&T, it was a mistake to have Nokia to place its Lumia 800 and 900 with AT&T only. Look at the sucess Samsung has with their Galaxy series of phones. By offering their phones with ALL four carriers, its managed to become the #2 smartphone in the sales charts here in the US.

Being an T-Mobile customer, I wanted to try the 800 or the 900 phones, but neither of them support T-Mobiles radio frequencies and your stuck downloading content at 2G speeds.

You lost a customer, Nokia. And no, I don't care for the 720:
A lot of that had to do with carrier interest. Most carriers opted to wait for WP8(Apollo) to support any new hardware running Windows Phone. Verizon opted to not support it due to lack of LTE support. Sprint said they will wait for Apollo as well. No...

Amusing

I'm amused at the amount of time many people spend to hate this phone. You people do realize that you're still generating buzz for the phone. If you genuinely hated it, you would simply ignore it.

Thank you for promoting Nokia.

Question for you Eric

Is there a switch in the settings to disable the 4G LTE, or does it automatically come on whenever you're in an LTE coverage area?
