January 10, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The Finnish tactics at smartphone warfare is again at play, as Nokia unveiled their latest device in the Lumia line-up at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Mainly aiming at the consumers in the North American market, the rig comes with a lot of features that will make it a hot cake on the LTE wireless broadband network offered by the US carrier AT&T.

Lumia 900 has a lot to tout about.  First, it is the first 4G LTE smartphone from Nokia on AT&T. Then, it features the largest display on a Lumia device with its 4.3 inch AMOLED display.  Running on the Windows platform, Lumia 900 features a 1.4 GHz processor and an 1830 mAh battery.

The new entrant to the Lumia line-up will feature a special rear camera with Carl Zeiss lens touting a larger aperture of F2.2 to offer better pictures even in low-light conditions.

The cam also offers wide angle focal length of 28 mm for clicking better panoramic pictures covering more space. In addition, the front camera on Lumia 900 for video calling also touts about better aperture and focal length.

However, the acceptance of the device among AT&T consumers will be proved if the Finnish smartphone maker has polished their ability to tailor make smartphone devices for regional markets.

Predecessor Lumia -710, meant for the T-Mobile network, was not received warmly. The new entrant seems to mix up best features of the earlier Lumia 800 and other popular Nokia devices.

However, it is assumed that the acceptance of the new entrant on AT&T network and in the market will be crucial in shaping the future plans of the close partnership between Nokia and Microsoft to catch up with the competition in the smartphone market.

Though there is no exact pricing info available about the device, the device in Black or Cyan shades will be launched by AT&T in the coming months.
