You will have to wait just a wee bit longer, before Nokia's hero phone reaches you. A great news has just preceded the arrival of the Nokia phone. Amazon has made the phone available for pre-order at an amazing cheap rate of $0.01!
Yes, you read it right.
Jeff Bradley, At&T device head revealed that the Nokia flagship phone is coming on April 8. And, the phone will enjoy a special launch, he confirmed.
At all levels, this is a notch above anything we've ever done, Bradley said in an interview with CNET, and that includes the launch of the iPhone.
Earlier the Redmond-based company had announced its mandate to supply a quality phone at a lower price and, to abide by that, the company has planned to launch the phone at a very affordable price of $99.99 on AT&T.
But caution readers, the less-than-a-penny pre-order price of the Lumia 900 only comes with a two-year agreement with the wireless provider AT&T. And to avail the minimum basic 450-minute monthly plan, the user has to shell out $39.99 and an additional $20 for AT&T's cheapest, 300-megabyte data plan.
If you have missed the features of Nokia's first 4G-enabled smartphone, here it is again:
Running on the latest Microsoft Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, the 4.3-inch Nokia phone will offer one-touch access to social networking sites along with features like easy grouping of contacts, communication threads and Internet Explorer 9. Nokia this time has used AMOLED ClearBlack display on this set.
Lumia 900 will have HSDPA 21 Mbps, HSUPA 5.76 Mbps and will support 4G LTE. According to AT&T, the Lumia phone will provide a blazing fast 4G LTE that speeds 10x faster than 3G.
The Lumia 900 comes with a 1.4 GHz Scorpion processor, Qualcomm APQ8055 Snapdragon, Adreno 205 GPU with 16GB internal storage and 512MB RAM. And the Nokia smartphone will not have any external memory card slot.
The phone will also sport an 8 megapixel main camera with Carl Zeiss lens, dual LED flash, Auto Focus features and a 1 megapixel front camera for video calling.
But the USP of the phone will be its Xbox Live capabilities. The cutting edge graphics, ClearBlack display and Windows Phone OS provide a great platform on which to develop games believe experts.
