The global march of Nokia’s Lumia devices continues apace with today’s launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 in China.
This will be the fifth Lumia smartphone that is available in China – a nation that now boasts over 900 million mobile phone users. The Nokia Lumia 900 for the 900 million, perhaps?
The standout features of the Nokia Lumia 900, which won 13 awards at CES earlier this year, will be familiar to those lucky enough to already own one.
Nokia’s flagship Windows Phone features a stunning a 4.3-inch ClearBlack screen that will brilliantly show off your photos taken on the 8-megapixel main camera with exclusive Carl Zeiss optics. There is also a 1-megapixel front-facing camera for those all-important self-portraits and video calling.
All this hi-tech is encased within a sleek, one-piece polycarbonate body that comes in a variety of colours including White, Black and Cyan.
On the inside, it’s just as impressive. Fast web browsing, great apps, Microsoft Office, emails and a rich social network experience are also key to the Nokia Lumia 900’s award-winning success.
The local touch
However, this globe-conquering phone arrives in China with the local touch very much intact.
It will come preloaded with top apps such as Sina Weibo, QQ IM, Baidu Search, Alipay and as well as the signature Nokia experiences like Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive and Nokia Music.
“I am very excited to introduce our premium Lumia smartphone, the Nokia Lumia 900, to consumers in China, completing our Nokia Lumia family,” said Gustavo Eichelmann, Vice-President and Head of Nokia China.
“People will be blown away by the brilliant content on the crisp, 4.3-inch screen, amazed at the speed of sharing high-quality images and videos, and love the freedom of its longer battery life.”
The reaction headset
As if the release of the Nokia Lumia 900 was not enough for one day, then Chinese buyers will also be able pick up the cutting-edge Nokia Reaction Bluetooth Headset, for the first time.
This intuitive Bluetooth headset connects with NFC (Near Field Communication) to your phone and makes talking and answering your calls, hands-free, easier than ever. The Reaction headset’s Always Ready technology offers a truly seamless experience with your phone. You can answer a call simply by placing it within your ear.
There is no longer any need for annoying cables or to grasp for a tiny microphone – it has three integrated mics with automatic volume control. It is also HD Audio compatible for enhanced voice quality and comes with a charging holder and carry case.
All told, a great piece of kit for a great phone.
The Nokia Lumia 900 is available from RMB 4599 in Nokia’s flagship store, Nokia brand stores and China’s top electronics chain stores, including Suning, Gome, DXT, Funtalk and D.Phone, as well as other regional channels and online shops such as 360Buy.
