In love with the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone

I first saw the Nokia Lumia 900 at CES in Las Vegas a few months ago. I fell in love. The Lumia 900 fit in my hand better than my previous smartphones, the screen was easier on my eyes, and it just looked downright sexy with its design.

Last week fate took over and my iPhone sadly ended up in the bottom of the pond out back. I needed a replacement and decided to make the switch from iOS to Windows Phone.

I showed up to my local AT&T store only to find out they were all out of Nokia Lumia 900 devices. Oh the horror! Much to my surprise, an hour after I left the store, the sales guy Isaac called to tell me he found one Lumia 900 in the stockroom and he would hold it for me. I high-tailed it back to the store and officially made the switch. The best part? The phone was $99 with a new service agreement and because I was purchasing before midnight on April 21, 2012 I would be eligible for the $100 AT&T billing credit from NOKIA due to a software update that would be needed. So I got this amazing and beautiful phone for $9, which was the sales tax. I can’t even begin to describe the adrenaline rush and excitement I experienced while the sales guy was setting up my phone.

Here’s the first photo I took with the NOKIA Lumia 900:

So far, I’m in love with the Nokia Lumia 900. Granted, I’m still trying to figure out a few things, but thanks to Nokia Smart Start and the quick start guide included in the packaging, I’ve already transferred my music from iTunes into my Lumia 900. I also have my social networking sites set up and I’ve even had time to play with the camera (8MP with Carl Zeiss optics). It was a breeze to update the software, even on my Macbook Pro. Soon I’ll write a full product review after I have time to guage battery life and other particulars. Until then, here are some photos of my new love, the Nokia Lumia 900.

I think the design of the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone is downright sexy and sleek.

So far, so good with the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone. I can’t wait to play with the Carl Zeiss camera a bit more this weekend and discover some new apps in Windows Marketplace. While I realize that there are more apps available for iPhone versus Windows Phone overall, I don’t use all that’s available and have found comparable if not the same iPhone apps I previously used in Windows Marketplace. Now if I could just get Instagram for Windows Phone then I would be one ecstatic mama.

Nokia is a winner with the Lumia 900 for me with value and ease of use. Plus, I like the nostalgia of having a Nokia device in my hand again, which was the first brand of mobile phone I ever owned. I feel as if life has come full circle and its good to see Nokia back in the US market.

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, however, not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but is not as fast as Safari, and possesses a clunkier interface. If you occasionally thinking about using the internet browser that’s not a worry, however, if you’re planning to look at web alot from a PMP next the iPod’s larger screen and much better browser might be important.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Many thanks

    articles? I mean, what you say is important and
    all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could definitely be one of
    the greatest in its niche. Superb blog!
