Nokia Lumia 900Nokia has announced what CEO Stephen Elop calls “the first Windows Phone built and designed for the North American market,” the Lumia 900. This is Nokia’s first LTE device, and one of the first Windows Phone devices on AT&T’s LTE network.

The Lumia 900 looks very similar to the Lumia 800, but it a bit larger with a 4.3-inch AMOLED display with ClearBlack instead of a 3.7-inch screen. It has two Carl Zeiss lenses, with the back camera sporting an f2.2 aperture and a 22mm focal length which means you can get more in the frame of your photos at a great quality. Nokia is also packing in it’s exclusive apps like Nokia Drive and ESPN Sports Hub.

There is no release date as of right now, only that the phone will be available in the coming months. Hopefully that means very soon. Nokia will announce the exact release date in the coming weeks.

Even if the Lumia 900 really is just a slightly better Lumia 800, it’s still very exciting. The Nokia 800 is a great device, and a slightly larger version with LTE can only be great as well. To speak personally, I cannot wait to play with this device.
