Nokia Lumia 900 is only something for Windows Fans say Reviews

If you hoped the new Nokia Lumia 900 LTE Windows Phone would be a challenger to the iPhone 4S or top of the line Android phones you will be disappointed. The pundits have reviewed the Lumia 900 Windows phone, which will go on sale this weekend and they are not impressed.

Walt Mossberg's verdict: "If you’re looking for a $100, high-end smartphone, or are a Windows Phone fan who has been waiting for better hardware, the Lumia 900 is worth considering. But the phone had just too many drawbacks in my tests to best its chief competitors."

Joshua Topolsky loves the hardware design of the Lumia 900, but that is about it. This is not all Nokia's fault. Microsoft is still behind with the Windows Phone OS. The eco system for Windows Phones is also still limited. 

The TechRepublic is an interesting report that explains why the Lumia 900 is offered for $99.99 on contract. Nokia is not using the latest and greatest hardware components inside the Lumia 900.
