We are hours away from the event that should see the official announcement of the Nokia Lumia 900here at CES 2012. What we have here is the first official press photo of the Nokia Lumia 900 (as previous leaks have reportedly been just very good renders).
The Lumia 900 resembles the Nokia N9 and Lumia 800 quite a lot and as you can see from the image above the polycarbonate unibody is still in place. There isn’t any metal back panel action going on as suggested earlier.
As it’s going to be an AT&T device, there are going to be some preloaded apps on the WP7 OS like ESPN, Spotify and Nokia’s own Nokia Maps and Nokia Drive. Expect more information about the Nokia Lumia 900 in a few hours, when we will be covering the Nokia press conference at CES.
Two people close to Nokia revealed for New York Times that the Finnish manufacturer will introduce a metallic Windows Phone-based smartphone Lumia 900 today at CES 2012.
The Lumia 900 is no secret, since it has been leaked numerous times already. The currently available leaked materials show a phone looking exactly like the polycarbonate Lumia 800/N9, so no one thought Nokia might use different body this time.
If the New York Times’ sources are correct though, the upcoming Windows Phone flagship Lumia 900 will be made of metal (while retaining its unibody design).
The online edition of the paper also confirms that the Nokia Lumia 900 will be sold by AT&T in the US, but gives no information about its availability outside the states.
The Nokia press conference is tonight and we’ll be on site, covering it for you live. Stay tuned!
