  • Lumia 800 vs Lumia 900 rear

    The Lumia 900 measures 127.8mm by 68.5mm by 11.5mm and weighs 160g. By comparison, the 800 has a chassis measuring 116.5mm by 61.2mm by 12.1mm and weighs 142g.

    Unlike the Lumia 800, the 900 uses a flat piece of glass for the display rather than rounded edges. However, it provides a similar level of camera functionality, with Carl Zeiss optics on board.

    The Lumia 900's top section design is slightly different to that in the 800. It provides a micro-SIM slot and a headphone socket.

    Phones4U is listing the Lumia 900 on plans with Orange, O2 and Vodafone, with the handset available free on a two-year contract at £36 a month, and with a delivery date of 14 May. Carphone Warehouse is also taking pre-orders with the same operators on similar contracts, but with a delivery date of 21 May onward. Clove Technology is selling the handset SIM-free for £458.40, with the first stock due in on 16 May, according to the retailer's website.

  • To correct one thing, Lumia 900 was not on sale in January but in April 8th, it was just introduced in January in Las Vegas.

    Hope the Lumia 900 will make a hit in the UK!!!
  • @KJIA. Thanks for catching that error. We'll fix that now.

  • you say this 'sales success' "will be exclusive to online retailer Phones4U"
    This does not seem to be correct - a quick check shows that this bomb will be available from many UK retailers .
    In fact it's actually discounted at launch - bundled with free headphones on discount tariffs

    At best Phone4 seem have the white model 'exclusively'
    Which does not make it as 'exclusive' as is being claimed.
