At the moment AT&T is offering the iPhone 4, which has been on the market for slightly less than two years and now plans to bring forth some competition for the iPhone from Nokia.
Starting from the 8th of April AT&T will be introducing the Nokia Lumia 900 smartphone on its network. The smartphone from Nokia will be the marginally cheaper device when compared to the iPhone 4 though feature-wise a competitive introduction.
The Nokia Lumia 900 allows users to make use of Long Term evolution (LTE) 4G Data Communication together with 3G and AT&T’s HSPA+, where as the iPhone 4 does not support 4G technology.
The new smartphone from Nokia boats a much better camera than the iPhone 4 together with more advanced lens system and displays its images on a 4.3 inch AMOLED screen, larger than the iPhone 4.
The Nokia Lumia 900 also packs a faster processor than its competitor backed up with twice the memory of an iPhone 4. Other than hardware specifications the Windows Phone is also catching up on the Apple iOS and Google Android in terms of smartphone interfaces.
Ever since I got my hands on the Lumia 710 from T-mobile its become more and more clear that Nokia has put some serious thought into this device. Its an entirely new flavor for this line up of Nokia’s smartphone’s.
A nice surprise after seeing Android coming out with interfaces that looked like not-so-distant cousins of the iOS.
Nokia has however been clever with it’s smartphone interface, and has it tailored to look much like what will be expected on the Windows 8 tablets. Early in March is when I was first able to use the Windows 8 based tablets at CeBIT.
From that experience I can tell you that the move over from Windows smartphone’s to the Windows 8 tablets will be much like the move from the iPhone to iPad.
Though when the Windows interface is compared to iOS it is largely different, but differences can be both positive and negative, personally I find the Windows outlay to be much more comfortable to use.
While I was driving around in Baltimore the other day in a rental I pulled out my other phone to use the GPS only to find that it would have me pay for some sort of subscription.
In which case I resorted to Nokia Drive, one of the new applications Nokia is launching together with the standard apps that already come with the Windows Phone.
It turned out to be a very useful and accurate navigation system that guides you through out the city step by step. Another such app is Sky Drive. It works similar to the iCloud offered by Apple in that it allows you to store data and create back ups of whatever you wish to in cloud storage.
However it does have an edge over regular cloud storage services in the fact that you can share information stored in your cloud such as photo’s or videos.
