The Nokia Lumia 900 stole the show at CES this year and next we will see it hit the AT&T stores for just $100. You can actually find it for free from various online vendors and this gorgeous piece of hardware is sure to be a hot seller.

Make sure to check out my full ZDNet Smartphones & Cell Phones blog post with more detailed thoughts and a video walk through of the device.

The basics are included in the box, but there is no wired headset (does anyone ever use those?) and just the basics.

The Nokia Lumia 900 feels good in the hand and is similar in size to most black slab smartphones today.

The 3.5mm headset jack is set way over on the side of the top with the microUSB port in the middle and microSIM card try on the right.

The Lumia 900 is larger than my beloved HTC Radar 4G too.
