After launching the Lumia 800 in London last year, Nokia chose New York City as the designated unveiling platform for the upcoming Lumia 900. The smartphone will be presented in an open event this Friday in Times Square.
The event is rumoured to be presented by an unknown special guest who will also perform a live show. The Finnish company advises that anyone can join as long as they are present in Times Square, at 7pm sharp.
Nokia is known to organise big shows whenever a new handset is launched, but this time they've outdone themselves. As well as this monumental event, Nokia has also invested in a new "Smartphone Beta Test" campaign, which will also take place on Friday - straight after the phone is unveiled.
The Nokia Lumia 900 will run on Windows Phone 7.5 Mango and be powered by a 1.4GHz Scorpion CPU that integrates a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. Other noteworthy specifications include the Adreno 205 graphical processing unit, an 1830 mAh battery capable of supporting up to 7 hours of continuous talk-time, an 8-megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens, autofocus and dual-LED flash, 512 MB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
The unit will also feature a 4.3 inch display, with a design similar to the Lumia 800. The phone is expected to be released on April 8th on AT&T, however, its price is yet to be confirmed.
