CES 2012: Nokia announces the Lumia 900 with AT&T LTE and Carl Zeiss optics

It was only a matter of time before we saw the release of a Windows Phone with Carl Zeiss optics and the Lumia 900 has it and LTE support for AT&T.

Dang, with devices like the upcoming HTC Titan II and just announced Nokia Lumia 900 I may just have to add an AT&T account to my collection as they rule the Windows Phone market in the U.S. The new Nokia Lumia 900 was leaked for a while now, but it is still great to get official word from Nokia and Microsoft and I can't wait to get some hands on time with the device.

The Nokia Lumia 900 includes the following:

  • Support for AT&T's LTE 4G network with up to 50 Mbps downloads
  • 4.3 inch AMOLED ClearBlack screen at 800x480 pixels
  • 8 megapixel with Carl Zeiss optics (YES, finally a great camera for Windows Phone)
  • 1 megapixel front facing camera
  • 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • Cyan and Black colors (I love cyan on my Nokia N9)
  • Huge 1840 mAh battery

Don't forget that with a Nokia Windows Phone you also get their Nokia Drive voice-guided navigation service and Nokia Maps. There is no pricing or availability information yet. Anyone else excited about the Nokia Lumia 900?
