LTE-powered Nokia Lumia 900 leaked in virtual holiday card

We know the Windows Phone-powered Nokia Lumia 800 is coming to Canada, at least in some form, but now there is word of a LTE-powered Lumia 900 launching in the States in early January. However, according to Microsoft guru Paul Thurrott, a form of that device known by its codename Ace, is likely launching in multiple regions next year. Can we expect it in Canada? Considering we are one of the first countries with national LTE coverage, the likelihood is probably high.

The 900 is expected to be slightly larger than the 3.7″ Lumia 800, with a 4- or 4.3-inch OLED display but the same gorgeous polycarbonate body we love. In addition to the same 1.4Ghz single-core processor, 512MB of RAM and a 8MP back camera with Carl Zeis optics, the Lumia 900 looks to have a front-facing camera, an addition sorely missed on the 800. It should also be the first device released running Windows Phone Tango, the upcoming update to Mango.

We’ll likely hear more about the Nokia Lumia 900, if it called as such, at CES but right now we know it’s being released on AT&T, which is good news since they are using the same HSPA+/LTE bands as Rogers and Bell.

Here’s hoping!

    Too late for me. After 3 months of waiting for any of the new windows phones to be released in Canada I have given up.

    Called Bell today and placed my order for the Galaxy Nexus.

    Waiting for Windows phone is driving me nuts 🙂

    Anything under a gig of ram is just a waste

      Your post makes me wonder if you really understand how this OS works. Clearly not.

  • arkeetek

    OMG It doesn’t have dual core … This is bullshit!

    • StanLee

      Doesn’t need it.

  • Francis

    Windows Phone does not need dual core for great performance, even in gameplay.

      Windows Phone doesn’t need dual core. Doesn’t need high quality high resolution displays. Doesn’t need 1GB RAM. Doesn’t need front facing camera. And doesn’t need faster than 14 Mbps networking.
      That’s why Windows Phone is doing so well and is killing Android and iOS.

  • EAK47

    The high quality resolution display has nothing to do with the OS.

    It’s a nice to have on any phone.

    • bob

      Just like other features such as a fast processor and fast GPU.

    We’ll hopefully see this phone before 2054
