Nokia Lumia 900 Leak Offers Glimpse of Windows Phone Future

Nokia's Lumia series might have only just been released, but one blogger claims to have his hands on the next big thing to come out of the Finnish company: the Nokia 900.

While as-yet unannounced, it's known that Nokia is working on a new flagship phone designed to sit above its existing Lumia 800 as the go-to choice for smartphone buyers looking to dip their toes in the Windows Phone waters.

Sadly, little is known - but Alexander Jethwa, a blogger writing for Geek Tech Blog, claims to have his hands on a Nokia Lumia 900 which offers a glimpse into the future.

According to Jethwa's write-up, the Lumia 900 includes a 4.3-inch AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz processor - although, as with existing Windows Phone handsets, this is likely to be single core - and a 'nicer camera' than the Lumia 800.

This all comes despite a minimal overall footprint increase over its less powerful predecessor, with the major design changes including a move to iPhone-style pin-push access to the micro-SIM and no cover over the micro-USB port.

Described as a pre-production prototype, the handset Jethwa saw is not necessarily the finished design: he himself admits that a glossy finish seen on the prototype will only make it into the production model if the Lumia 800's matte finish receives enough negative feedback.

Nokia, for its part, is refusing to confirm or deny Jethwa's report, including the claims that the smartphone is due for release some time in the first quarter of 2012.
