PROMOTION: Nokia Lumia 900: Beautifully Different

The Nokia Lumia 900 is the new smartphone that helps you to Live More

Explore your surroundings, discover new passions, take and share beautiful photos, enjoy music and movies, stay closer to loved ones and keep up to date with what matters in your world – all while spending less time gazing at your screen.

The Nokia Lumia 900, running Windows 7.5, is the most innovative and most fully featured handset yet from the rapidly emerging Nokia and Microsoft partnership. With a larger screen, 4.3”, sleek design, the latest software and a massive range of top-quality, content-rich applications, this beautifully different device will make your life richer and simpler. Here's how:

The 8MP rear snapper, complete with Carl Zeiss optics and a dual-led flash, allows you to capture stunning and easily shared mobile photography in any location, even in low light. The front-facing camera, nestled above the display, enables free video calls through apps like Tango and Skype, allowing you to enjoy closer contact with your nearest and dearest – wherever you roam.

The intuitive, dynamically updating Live Tiles on the Nokia Lumia 900 Start screen keeps track of new emails, missed calls, messages, sports scores, calendar appointments and the weather in just one glance. If there's something that demands your attention, you'll know without having to dig through multiple menus. Likewise, the People Hub Live Tile brings in those all-important social networking notifications and happenings to one screen. It also allows you to post status updates to them all with just one tap.

Sitting alongside the beautiful, colourful and unique polycarbonate monobody, the 4.3-inch AMOLED screen gives you an unparalleled viewing experience even in the bright midday sun, thanks to ClearBlack technology. Gone are the days when you needed to lurk in the shadows to read emails. Meanwhile, the display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, which means the occasional clumsiness won't do damage to your prized handset. Here's an example of how tough this display actually is.

The beautifully crisp and vivid display on the Lumia 900, Nokia's largest ever smartphone display, makes it the perfect companion for viewing video during your daily commute. Thanks to content-rich apps like Netflix, you'll always have something to watch on the go, while the 16GB of on-board memory means there's room to store your favourite digital titles for offline viewing.

The Nokia Lumia 900 offers unto 42Mbps mobile internet speeds*, thanks to the on-board DC-HSPA connectivity. For you, this means less time wasted waiting for webpages to load, email attachments to arrive and scores to update. With Bluetooth® 2.1+ EDR, high-speed USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi 801.11n, you can transfer and download big files faster and get on with your day. Live more. Do more.

Tagging friends in photos has never been easier thanks to the new upload feature that allows you to easily pick out the faces of your Facebook and Windows Live pals before you upload to those social services. From pocket to picture to your social network in seconds.

One of the great things about the People Hub for Windows Phone is that it encapsulates all of your contacts from multiple sources. Facebook friends, those you follow on Twitter and your professional LinkedIn contacts join folks from email accounts and the SIM card. Whomever you need to contact, they can be reached within just one app. Want to narrow down your network to the most important people? That's easily achieved with the Groups feature, which isolates your most important contacts for easier access.
