The Nokia Lumia 900 was the start mobile attraction of CES last month, but it was a US-only affair thanks to its 4G LTE connectivity. But the 4.3-inch turbo Windows Phone is now coming to the UK, the Finns have announced today at Mobile World Congress.
Expected out before July, the European version of the Nokia Lumia 900 switches out a 4G connection for slightly tamer HSPA speeds (Although 42Mbps max download speeds aren’t anything to be sniffed at), but otherwise this gorgeous handset remains the same. You get a 800×480 4.3-inch AMOLED screen (the same size as the Samsung Galaxy S 2’s), a front facing camera, Nokia’s sexy polycarbonate casing and an eight megapixel rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens skills. Yes, it’s not quite the obscene 41-megapixel sensor of the newly announced Nokia 808, but just be grateful you don’t have to put up with Symbian.
As for pricing: the Nokia Lumia 900 will cost around €480 (£406) SIM-free when it goes on sale in Q2 this year – that’s pretty par for the flagship course. Recombu is reporting one retailer will sell it for £445 Sim-free from 21 May.
Network partners are still to be revealed but Phones4U has already confirmed that it will sell the device.
