We get our hands on the Nokia Lumia 900, the latest flagship Windows Phone
[[artnid:424210|Nokia is preparing to launch]] its flagship [[artnid:416994|Lumia 900 Windows Phone]] in Australia very shortly. Thanks to [[xref:http://www.mobicity.com.au|MobiCity]] we've managed to get our hands on it a little early. Let's take a look!
The retail packaging for the Lumia 900. Keep in mind this is an imported package, so the Australian box may differ slightly.
The Nokia Lumia 900 uses a small tool to eject the micro-SIM card slot at the top of the phone. It's a very similar system to the [[artnid:404489|iPhone 4S]] and the [[artnid:421149|HTC One X]].
Nokia's packaging is very slick, with all documentation inside a black box with "i" printed on the front.
Our Lumia 900 is a Canadian model, which appears to be sourced through telco Rogers.
Our Lumia 900 package included the charger, a USB cable and headphones. Note the Canadian charger: nothing an Aussie adapter won't fix.
The Lumia 900 is basically a larger Lumia 800. It has a large 4.3in screen compared to the much smaller 3.7in panel on the 800, though it uses the same AMOLED display with an identical resolution of 480x800.
The Lumia 900 has the same 8-megapixel camera as the Lumia 800, but it includes a front-facing 1.3-megapixel camera for video calling, a feature absent from the Lumia 800.
The Nokia Lumia 900 differs little from the Lumia 800 when it comes to specifications: it is powered by the same single-core 1.4GHz processor and 512MB of RAM, while it also has the same amount of internal memory, 16GB.
