Unboxing the Nokia Lumia 900

Launched back in May, the Nokia Lumia 900 is the Finnish company’s flagship Windows Phone handset. Check out our photos, unboxing video and first impressions after the break.

Among all other handset manufacturers, Nokia managed to release the most number of SKUs for a Windows Phone 7 line-up, starting with the affordable Lumia 610 right up to the flagship Lumia 900. That’s 4 handsets in a span of a few months.

The Lumia 900 is the mothership — a 4.3-inch, unibody handset with a smooth, matte polycarbonate material.

Check out our full unboxing video below:

The Lumia 900 shared its design with the Nokia N9 (running Meego) which was later on also used by the Lumia 800.

There’s a minor redesign on the glass panel of the Lumia 900 though — the edges no longer spill beyond the corner and the embossed feel has been removed in favor of a flatter edge that’s lined up with a thin strip of rubber.

The Lumia 900’s hardware configuration might seem like it’s a mid-range smartphone when compared to Android handsets in the market.

Truth is, with this configuration, WP7 already runs pretty smoothly (or as “buttery” as the upcoming Android Jellybean).

    This phone is great but who wants this now that microsoft has just announced that all present windows phone will not be updated to WP8?

  3. xonx says:

    If this is upgradeable to Windows 8, I’ll get it.

  4. Roberto Lim says:

    Nice phone. Was thinking about buying one. The absence of an official upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 is a deal breaker though. Unlike Android 2.3 and Android 4.x which maintain app compatibility. WP8 apps will not run on WP7.x. Widowns Phone 7.x apps will run on WP8. Looks like it might be better to wait for WP8 devices.

    Its not getting windows phone 8, which will run a different kernel making this obsolete already

    dami namang paranoid sa update. basta ko pag 15k nalang 2ndhand nito sa tipidcp bilin ko na to.

  7. reader says:

    Oo nga e..nung bumili ka ba ng 3310 mo nagkaroon ka ng update? Wla naman dba pero na enjoy mo pa rin ang phone. As long as it serves its purpose okay yun. Bumili ka ng phone na meron nung feature na kailangan mo. Hindi yung dahil may update. Di mo naman sigurado kng maganda yung update or hindi d ba.

    I got this phone about 3 weeks ago. Last Sunday, I had to have it serviced at the Nokia Care service center because the battery stopped charging up. After doing my own research on the problem, I found out that it’s a common issue for Lumia 900‘s and 800’s.

    Nokia Care now tells me I have to wait for at least a week for my phone.

    Sucks that this problem came up too early in its product life.

    I will never buy a Nokia Lumia phone again.

    Based on my experience, lumia phone performes way better than any droid phone at the same specs or even single core of lumia vs. dual core of latest droid phones. Way way better…

  10. Mr. Curious says:

    It looks really nice and pretty neat I say, especially with the white color. Hands down to its design. I just hope they already made it dual core so you can shoot 1080p videos. =D thou with that price tag, I’ll still go with iPhone 4s. not a fanboy here

  11. Kamiya says:

    This phone is the very definition of dead on arrival.

  12. Marcelino says:

    Nokia Lumia 900 looks GORGEOUS in white!
