Today at the CES 2012 event Nokia and HTC announced their best Windows Phone 7 devices yet. Both the devices were finally announced today after numerous leaks and were highly anticipated. Following are the phones and their specs:
Nokia Lumia 900
Nokia Lumia 900 is one of the best phones Nokia has made to date. The phone has got a polycarbonate unibody design similar to that of the Lumia 800 and N9. The device has got a 1.4Ghz processor and 512Mb RAM.
Nokia Lumia 900 has got a 8mp camera on the back with an LED flash and 720p HD video recording. Lumia 900 has got the largest touchscreen a Nokia device has ever got which is 4.3 inches big, making it considerably bigger than that of Lumia 800 and N9.
Also at the front is the secondary 1mp camera. The phone has got the ‘Nokia-only’ apps such as Nokia drive, Nokia Maps and Nokia Music which are exclusive to only the Windows Phone devices of Nokia. The phone is quite similar to that of the Lumia 800 due to the capacitive buttons below the screen, the similar design, the similar OS and also due to the same camera and resolution.
HTC Titan II
HTC Titan II is one of the first phones to be equipped with a whopping 16mp camera and of course the first Windows Phone to have one.
Titan II also has got good specs other than camera. It has got a 1.5 Ghz processor(faster than the one on Lumia 900) and has got a unibody design. The phone also has got a larger display than Lumia 900 (4.7 inches compared to 4.3). The phone will try to improve the reputation of HTC devices in the camera category because their devices have been criticised due to crappy cameras. So, best of luck Titan.
And with these devices about to go on launch, it seems like Windows Phone 7 finally has started to fight for its market share. We just hope that the companies will continue to release devices in the same way in the future. And really, these phones above have the potential(and specs) to give Android and iOS a run for its money!
