AT&T has just announced the Nokia Lumia 900 availability from 8th April, at US$99 (with a new two year contract). The main differences here are the front facing camera and this being one of the first two Windows Phone handsets with LTE support. Video below:

The screen on the Lumia 900 is not pentile matrix so slightly better display. The front facing camera has wide angle lens. Bigger battery as well for the LTE. European version would be very nice. No LTE so the bigger battery would help even more.

Information I read suggested a mid-year release for other countries, but who knows until Nokia says otherwise.

Saving my money for a Cyan one. Hopefully it gets announced for here soon. This is my next phone, and I want it now!

Doubted anyone has since Lumia 900 has not been released anywhere yet. Though you might find users who might have switched from N8 to Lumia 800.

This is one seriously nice handset. Nokia USA gave me a chance to play with a pre-release unit during CES in January.

Another improvement of this handset over the Lumia 800 is that it doesn't have the fiddly door to get at the MicroUSB connection. It's a small thing I know, but that little door is hard to open and unlike the rest of the phone is easily damaged.

My next phone will probably be the Lumia 900.

I've earned the money - just waiting for the opportunity to buy.

How does one transfer data from a SIM to a microSIM?

Will NZ ever have an LTE network?

Yea, since I didn't win the 2degrees Lumia 800 last night, the 900 will probably be my next phone. Heard there is a DC (duel carrier) version being released for the non US market?
