Nokia Lumia 900 announced: Specifications and Video

There you have it folks. The mighty Nokia Lumia 900 has just been unveiled by Stephen Elop in Las Vegas a today and it looks exactly like you might have expected it to be. It’s a slightly bigger Lumia 800 thanks to the 4.3″ AMOLED screen (I’m guessing that’s a unfortunately a PenTile Matrix panel..) and packs an Qualcomm MDM9200 LTE multi-modem alongside an APQ8055 Snapdragon like the HTC Titan II announced earlier today. The battery has a capacity of 1830mha (the Titan II is 1730mha) and it will come in two colors; Black and Cyan. It will be available exclusively on AT&T in the US. It features exactly the same 8Mpix F2.2/28mm camera on the back with Carl Zeiss optics but also has a 1.3Mpix F2.4 (!!) front facing camera.The Lumia 900 will also have the WiFi Host-spot internt sharing feature enabled out of the bow.

No word yet on if it will ever be available outside of the US or the presence of a Gyroscope unlike the Lumia 800 and 710. Stay tuned for more..

UPDATE: The Nokia Lumia 900 does feature a Gyroscope.

UPDATE: It apparently doesn’t have a PenTile Martix panel!

HTC Titan II LTE Windows Phone announced

I guess that this one came out of nowhere… HTC has just unveiled the HTC Titan II which is the first LTE Windows Phone to be officially announced today. Steve Ballmer and Stephen Elop have also hinted a more LTE device announcement coming shortly (mainly the Lumia 900). So what is exactly the HTC Titan II and how does it compare to the regular Titan ? Well not much has changed besides the MDM9200 LTE multi-modem which sit next to the same APQ8055 clocked at 1.5Ghz. The 8MPix F2.2 camera has also been swapped with a 16Mpix F2.6. sensor (greatly exceeding the 12Mpix limitation of the MSM8255 so HTC alongside Qualcomm must have done so driver changes there. But it’s a downgrade in terms or Apreture) and a non-removable 1730Mha battery. The HTC Titan 2 is only headed to AT&T in the coming months. Check out the full press release after the break
