How the Nokia Lumia 900 Will Work

        Tech | Cell Phones

Author's Note

The Lumia 900 is the most exciting phone Nokia's made in years, and easily the best-looking Windows Phone 7 device in existence. The unibody design diverges from just about everything on the market, and Windows Phone 7 is a beautiful operating system. Even so, it's going to be tough for Nokia to compete with Android and iOS. Windows Phone 7 has a small install base, and the Lumia 900's hardware doesn't push the envelope like the newest Android phones. Still, I love the style so much I might make it my next smartphone. Not even the iPhone can compete with that perfect design.
