Nokia Lumia 900 now at Rogers, dated for the UK
Nokia's Lumia 900 has now arrived in Canada in LTE guise, with Rogers offering the Windows Phone for $100 on a three-year voice and data contract. At the same time, Pocket-Lint reported that the HSPA+ version of the handset will be available in the UK on April 27. Electronics retailers Phones 4U and Carphone Warehouse will stock the handset at that time, with the former of the two offering the white version as a UK exclusive.
The flagship Nokia phone is otherwise available in black (only at Carphone Warehouse), cyan, and magenta colors. Phones 4U is the only retailer that offers the Lumia 710, 800, and soon, the 900, in white. UK buyers who pre-order the 900 will get a free Nokia Play 360 wireless speakers worth £120 (nearly $190).
The phone runs on Windows Phone 7.5 and has a 4.3-inch AMOLED touchscreen. A 1.4GHz Snapdragon CPU powers it. There is an eight-megapixel camera in the back sporting Carl Zeiss optics and paired with a dual-LED flash. The front camera draws on a 1.3-megapixel sensor.
Phones 4U will offer the phone for no money down when on a £36 (about $57) per month contract.
