Nokia sheds light on latest Lumia

WinPho Tango calling

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

CES 2012

Stephen Elop took the stage at CES last night to reveal the much-leaked Lumia 900, the next member of Nokia's Windows Phone range of handsets.

While it bears a striking resemblance to its younger 800-branded sibling, the Lumia 800, the 900 bulks out the battery from 1450mAh to 1830mAh and ups the screen size from 3.7in to 4.3in. The display sports the same 800 x 400 resolution, however.

The 900 also shares the same engine as its sibling, with a 1.4GHz processor, 512MB of Ram and 16GB of internal storage. The 8Mp camera has been slightly improved, though, as has the OS.

Windows Phone 'Tango' is a minor step-up from Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, but the addition of video-calling will be warmly welcomed and the Lumia 900 includes a front-facing camera to take advantage of this.

The Nokia Lumia 900 also supports LTE - the 4G network standard - but there'll surely be a HSPA version for all us folk on older connectivity tech.

We'll be waiting another few months before it ships over these shores, but as the 900 is now Nokia's topdog in the WinPho department, it'll no doubt already have its ticket booked. ®
