Nokia At Mobile World Congress 2012 – Nokia Lumia 900
The Nokia Lumia 900 was announced back in CES 2012 which supports LTE and exclusive to AT&T. During Mobile World Congress 2012, Nokia announced that the Nokia Lumia 900 will also be available in a HSDPA+ Dual Carrier (DC-HSPA) variant, for high speed data connection (42Mbps download) in countries where LTE is not available (like Singapore).
It seems that for the upload part, we are still stick with HSUPA instead of HSUPA+ Dual Carrier (DC-HSUPA) as it has not been completed.
Specification wise, it is exactly the same as the LTE variant right down to the dimensions and weight. Interestingly, when Nokia announced the Nokia Lumia 900 in CES 2012, the white color was not mentioned.
Just want to highlight one of the more prominent change as compared to the Nokia Lumia 800 is that Nokia Lumia 900’s SIM tray design has been redesigned. Now it requires a SIM Door Key (as what Nokia calls it, similar to iPhone’s SIM Tray Eject Pin) to open the SIM tray. Because of this, the micro USB port is now easily accessible without opening any flip.
