Before CES started today, I read through a bunch of rumors about what would end up being released today. There were tablets and TVs and a few other odd things that would make any geek scream, but the one rumor that pumped me up for CES the most was that of the Nokia Lumia 900 (also known as the Nokia Ace).
The company held its keynote today, and has officially unveiled the Lumia 900 to the public. As far as Windows Phones go, this is the phone to buy. On top of a 1.4GHz CPU and 512MB of RAM, the phone touts a Carl Zeiss lens—a company that's one of the best lens manufacturers in the business. To view those stellar photos, it's also got a nice 4.3-inch AMOLED display.
Of course, a phone is nothing without its differentiating software, so Nokia has loaded it up with ESPN, CNN, and Nokia Drive. Plus, the newest Lumia also has a front-facing camera, so the phone can be used as a video-conferencing device with the built-in Tango app.
Pricing is anyone's guess at the time of this writing, but Stephen Elop stated that it would be available exclusively on AT&T in the "coming months."[The Verge]
