Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone Review

To say that the Nokia Lumia 900 is an important phone would be an understatement. With Windows Mobile on the rise but no true marquee device on the market, Nokia looks to deliver the flagship phone for Microsoft’s new OS that some might consider to be lacking. On all counts, the finished product is a success in my eyes.

Design

Starting with the design itself, Nokia brings to Windows Mobile the iconic design that it started with the N8 and N9 line of smart phones. Sporting a 4.3-inch OLED display with a resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, the high definition is an easy eye catcher that is great for streaming video, browsing the web, or viewing photos captured with the 8 megapixel rear camera. The design is also nearly flush throughout, except for the display itself which is slightly raised. A 1.3-inch megapixel camera is also located on the front to serve your video chat needs.

Operating System, Speed, Social Networking Apps

With Windows Mobile 7.5, otherwise known as Mango, the abilities of the phone are truly able to shine. The mobile operating system may be the newest to the market, but Microsoft has always been reliable when it comes to quality products and does not disappoint here. With the built in Windows Marketplace, users will have access to a plethora of apps to suit their every mobile need. Social networking has become one of the most popular activities in this smart phone era, and the Lumia 900 has applications for Facebook, Twitter, and many more. In just a swipe of your finger, your social media can be uploaded directly to your favorite networking site. Combine this with AT&T’s super fast LTE network and load times simply become a thing of the past.

Games & Entertainment

What better way to help your children pass the time on those long summer road trips than through Microsoft’s XBOX Live service? Exclusive to Windows Mobile phones, access to XBOX Live has never been quicker and easier. Multiplayer gaming, unlocking achievements, and online leaderboards will keep kids (and adults!) entertained for hours on end. The Lumia 900’s 1.4 GHz Qualcomm S2 processor along with 512 MB of RAM ensures that even the most intense games and high end graphics run without a hitch.

Nokia Applications

To round out the package, Nokia even includes custom applications of their own, further distancing it from the remaining Windows 7.5 smart phones. These extra features make the Lumia 900 an even more ideal choice for the perfect Father’s Day gift. If dad is a traveler, the Nokia Drive application provide free turn by turn navigation. Enhancing this as well is Nokia Maps, a full featured map service that will even render maps in 3D if you wish. Or for the sports Dad, ESPN Hub is your one stop for all sporting news, articles, and videos.

So how do you get the perfect Father’s Day gift this year? Nokia makes it simple: start by getting the perfect phone! This Father’s day, the Lumia 900 should not be overlooked.
