Nokia Lumia 900 Announced on Monday at CES, Features Metallic Design
NY Times seems to be sure that on Monday at CES Nokia Lumia 900 will be announced and that it will sport a sleek metallic design. We’d have expected this phone, seen by many as a bigger Lumia 800 to use the classic polycarbonate shell made famous by the N9 and Lumia 900, but it doesn’t work out that way apparently.
The piece in the New York Times paper is actually about Windows Phone and its evolution, so the Lumia 900 Ace is only a small part of it. The device is expected to come to AT&T and be announced at CES and as far as hardware goes, we have a 4.3 inch display, a front camera, probably 16GB of internal memory, 512MB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera. LTE is also on board and the device is rumored to run Windows Phone Tango, not Mango OS.
I would be really puzzled if Nokia really did replace polycarbonat with metal, since the former seemed a great chocie on the N9 and Lumia 800. Some people close to the situation have been speculating that we should expect a bigger and more powerful camera here, but for me the 8 MP sensor with double the bitrate of video capture from the N9 is enough…
