Nokia Lumia 900 UK release confirmed at MWC 2012

Having hit the US to much acclaim, Nokia has confirmed at MWC 2012 that it will launch the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone handset in the UK

 

Having been unveiled for the US at CES 2012 last month, Finnish phone manufacturer Nokia has confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 900 will hit the UK later this year.

Making the announcement at MWC, Nokia has revealed that its 4.3-inch high-end Windows Phone handset will break away from its US boundaries and touchdown on British soil in the coming months having dropped the US available LTE 4G connectivity options.

"After launching the Nokia Lumia 900 as its first LTE smartphone, Nokia is also making the phone available around the world in a DC-HSPA variant, for high speed data connection (42Mbits download) in countries where LTE is not available," an official Nokia spokesperson said.

Nokia Lumia 900 Specs

Asides from doing away with the UK unavailable 4G connectivity options, the Nokia Lumia 900 will make the transatlantic switch completely intact hitting the UK as a larger version of the already available Nokia Lumia 800 with a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display and Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango OS further plumped by a 1.4GHz processor and a host of Nokia exclusive WP7 apps including Nokia Drive.

On the entertainment front the handset will boast an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera with 720p HD video recording capabilities and, unlike the Lumia 800, a second, front-facing snapper.

Nokia Lumia 900 UK Release Date and Price

Set to hit the UK in a variety of polycarbonate colour schemes the Nokia Lumia 900 has been confirmed as heading to the UK “in the second quarter of 2012” with the white, black and cyan offerings to be priced at 480 Euros (£406.47).

Following this morning’s announcement, online retailers have kicked off the Nokia Lumia 900 UK pre-orders with Unlocked Mobiles making the handset available to buy with a £445.98 price tag and a claimed May 21st release.
