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.

Nokia At Mobile World Congress 2012 – Nokia Lumia 610

Nokia Lumia 610 is the only new Lumia phone announced at MWC 2012 (Nokia Lumia 900 was announced at CES 2012). It is announced in conjunction with Microsoft’s strategy of lowering the minium hardware requirements and hence the cost of Windows Phone to consumers.

Windows Phone OS now supports a lower cost processor, the Qualcomm 7x27a “system on a chip” running at 600MHz with reduced memory of at least 256MB and hence making it more affordable to emerging markets.

Galaxy Nexus (White)

Bought the Galaxy Nexus (White) from SingTel Shop at ComCenter on the 18th February 2012. Initially, the white color is only available online via SingTelShop.com. Since I am already at the physical store, so I thought no harm trying my luck to ask the Customer Service Officer (CSO) and to my surprise, they have it in-store at ComCenter! So those who want white, take note of this!

I ported Li Xiang over from M1 to SingTel and she signed a 2-year 3G Flexi Lite contract which cost S$39 per month. After telecom subsidy, the phone cost S$488.

Sony Xperia S

Announced at CES 2012, Sony Xperia S (the link is still pointing to SonyEricsson.com) is Sony’s first smartphone after she broke up with Ericsson.

The specs for Sony Xperia S is pretty impressive (1.5GHz Dual-Core + 1GB RAM) and it does supports NFC as well. The only complaint I have is it should be launching with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) instead of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). It will be available in 2 colors, black or white.

Nokia Lumia 900

Nokia Lumia 900 was announced at CES 2012 but unfortunately at this point of time, it is only available exclusively for AT&T at launch time. I am pretty sure it will be in other countries as well. For Singapore, maybe SingTel will bring them in with their LTE service?

Now, if only Nokia included in NFC to the Lumia 900 and it would be perfect!
