Why the hoopla?
Nokia’s Lumia 900 Windows Phone handset was shown off in early January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas as a comeback for the Finnish phone maker, which used the handset to announce its re-entrance into the U.S. market alongside carrier partner AT&T.
Our own Jared Newman referred to the Lumia 900 as “what is supposed to be the first Windows Phone in the United States worth caring about.”
Mind you, the Lumia 900 is not the first Windows Phone, nor is it Nokia’s first. But in the United States, the Lumia 900 will be the biggest Windows Phone launch to date when it hits AT&T on April 8 for $100. It’ll also be the first Windows Phone by Nokia to include 4G LTE data speeds. Seeing as Nokia’s Lumia 800 is not available at subsidized prices stateside, the Lumia 900 is the best Windows Phone you can buy.
