The Nokia Lumia 900 was confirmed for Canada last week at MWC 2012 in Barcelona, when Stephen Elop said the smartphone would arrive in his home country sometime in April, via Rogers.
Now we’re hearing that the 900 is ready to hit the shelves across Canada starting “early April”. Unfortunately, there’s still no word on how much Rogers is planning to ask for the new Windows Phone Mango handset.
Anyway, we know that Rogers’ Lumia 900 will come with LTE connectivity – just like AT&T’s version (expected to be released on March 18), but unlike the European edition, which only has HSPA+. Other features will include: 4.3 inch WVGA ClearBlack AMOLED display, polycarbonate body, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, Nokia Drive, 3.5mm headset jack, 8MP Carl Zeiss rear camera with dual LED flash and 720p video recording, 1.3MP front-facing camera, 512MB of RAM, 1.4GHz single-core processor, and 16GB of internal memory.
Rogers is already selling a Nokia Windows Phone device – the affordable Lumia 710, which costs $49.99 on contract, or $254.99 without any agreement. Moreover, the Lumia 800 is also available in Canada, but only via Telus (which asks $49.99 on contract, or $529.99 off contract for it).
