Nokia Lumia 900 front
Nokia is getting ready to start selling its top-of-the-line Lumia 900 in the UK on Friday, as it continues to bet on the Windows Phone-powered smartphone range to revive its fortunes.
At launch, the handset will be exclusive to online retailer Phones4U, which is taking pre-orders now for a range of operator price plans. However, other retailers and operators will soon follow, according to Nokia.
The handset was previously due to arrive on Phones4U on 27 April. However, it was delayed due to unexpected demand for the smartphone in the US, where it went on sale on 8 April. While the US model is built to use LTE networks, the lack of 4G in the UK means that the Lumia 900 in the UK will have lower-speed DC-HSPA features instead.
The Lumia 900 will join its previously released Lumia 800 and 710 siblings on British retailers' shelves. In April, Nokia admitted its Lumia smartphones have struggled to make an impact with British buyers, even though they have "exceeded expectations" in the US and other countries.
Seen above, the UK version of the Lumia 900 looks the same as the US model.
