The Nokia Lumia 900 - Windows Phone's best shot yet [the competition]

An 800x480 screen, 1.4GHz Qualcomm processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB of storage, an underappreciated but not fully matured operating system with a unique look and feel, and a physical design unlike anything else on the market. Name that phone. Is it the announced-15-months-ago-but-never-released HP Pre3, or the brand new Nokia Lumia 900 running Windows Phone on AT&T?

Well, it's both. Nokia's latest Windows Phone 7 salvo is hitting AT&T with the force of, well, Nokia and Microsoft, and unlike the Pre3, you can actually buy it in stores. Our friend Daniel Rubino over at WPCentral just reviewed the latest Windows Phone flagship device, and here's what he found plenty to love:

For $99 on contract, the Lumia 900 is one of the nicest Windows Phone on the market today and for the foreseeing future all at a great price. It has solid hardware including super-fast 4G LTE and the latest version of Windows Phone Mango ensuring a great experience for new users and veterans looking for an upgrade. Plus the device oozes with Nokia’s quality craftsmanship making it a device many will want to talk about. With all the hype around this phone, this could be the next “it” device for the summer.

That $99 price point is really the super interesting part. Nokia and Microsoft are pushing this hard, and with that subsidy it's clear that AT&T is planning to push it hard too. AT&T says that the marketing drive for the Lumia 900 will be their biggest ever, eclipsing even their efforts for the iPhone. It's an interesting show to see the difference that a committed (and perhaps desperate) companies like Nokia and Microsoft can make when they through their full weight behind a product. Not that we're making any allusions to the fate of webOS under HP or anything…
