The flagship smartphone of Nokia for the year of 2012, the Nokia Lumia 900, was Nokia’s first ever super smartphone. Nokia Lumia 900 might be the answer for the long search of Nokia and Microsoft’s to regain the top spot. As we all know, two of the biggest corporations in the world in the name of Nokia and Microsoft declared their partnership to seek for a place in the heavily growing smartphone community. Also, this announcement confirmed that Nokia will be leaving the Symbian Operating System in 2016.
The combination of these two giants seemed too impossible to happen until it did. Microsoft who was the leading manufacturer of the Operating System in personal computers will join forces with Nokia who was a major brand in manufacturing mobile phones.

Mixing it up is the big 512MB RAM and a huge 16GB built-in storage. But please do take note that there is no micro SD card slot so it is not expandable. Plus, it has the all new LTE technology that will definitely give you the ultimate browsing and downloading experience surpassing the capabilities of HSPA with its 50MBps download and 25MBps upload speed.
