Nokia Lumia Windows Phone With 4G LTE Connectivity Tested on AT&T and Verizon
We’ve heard that the Nokia Lumia 900 might come with LTE connectivity, but now it appears that there’s actually a device made by the Finns that’s being tested on AT&T and Verizon for such functions. As far as I know Windows Phone 7.5 Mango doesn’t support 4G LTE connectivity, but maybe the next Windows Phone version will.
CNET is saying that Nokia is testing a 4G LTE handset with carriers, trying to accelerate the carrier approval process. We’re expecting a flagship phone from the Nordic company in early 2012, one that’s rumored to run Windows Phone Tango and pack the same 1.4GHz processor as the Lumia 800 and 710. However, it could be that this 4.3 inch ClearBlack AMOLED phone will come with 4G, an 8 megapixel camera and maybe a front camera as well. Verizon is already known for a big portofolio of LTE devices, that include the Droid RAZR, HTC Rezound and Galaxy Nexus, while AT&T is barely catching up.
CES 2012 is starting in a few weeks and this is where we’ll see what novelty the phone makers have prepared for us. Maybe we’ll even see that rumored Nokia tablet that everyone was talking about…with Windows 8 and a bigger Nokia N9 format, just maybe…
