Nokia unveils the Lumia 900, a 4G LTE Windows Phone bound for AT&T

Nokia Lumia 900 announcement with Stephen Elop CES 2012

Nokia is mounting its triumphant return to the US market, or so it hopes. Today, the struggling phone maker unveiled its second Windows Phone bound for the North American market. The Nokia Lumia 900 will launch on AT&T within the next few months. The device, which appears to be an upgraded version of the Lumia 800 (which was itself an upgraded Nokia N9), will be one of the first 4G LTE devices to launch on the carrier.

Nokia CEO Stephen Elop unveiled the phone during the company’s pre-CES press conference today. From a hardware perspective, the Lumia 900 has a larger AMOLED screen than the Lumia 800–4.3 inches compared to the 3.7-inch screen of its European counterpart–and runs on a 1.5 GHz single-core processor. It will also come with Nokia’s exclusive apps like Nokia Drive (free turn-by-turn navigation) and launch in two colors: black and cyan. We don’t yet have any word on any other specs, though we imagine they will fall in line with the specs of most Windows Phones. Nokia did take time to highlight the power of the Carl Zeiss lens on its rear camera and the wide-angle lens on its front-facing camera.

To show their support for Nokia, both Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega came on stage to each say a few kind words about Nokia and the Lumia 900. Both seemed busy, likely because they were running around preparing for their own speeches on this most hectic of days. Nearly every major consumer elctronics maker is announcing new products and services today and tomorrow.

Though this is the only announcement being made today, Elop made a point to say that more announcements would be forthcoming and reiterated how pleased Nokia is to be launching the Lumia 710 (a budget phone) on T-Mobile Jan. 19.

As soon as we have a release date and price point, we’ll let you know.
