CES 2012: Photo — Nokia Lumia 900 LTE Windows Phone

LAS VEGAS — Behold the shining hope of Microsoft and Nokia: The Lumia 900 LTE Windows Phone, shown here in Cyan.

The Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II, announced earlier today, finally give Microsoft’s Windows Phone software drool-worthy, bleeding edge hardware.

On LTE, the Lumia 900 downloads files at up to 50 megabits per second. It also supports 21 Mbps downloads over AT&T’s HSPA+ network (which is nice, since the company still hasn’t begun offering LTE in the greater Seattle area where Microsoft is located and AT&T’s wireless business began …).

Nokia also claims the device’s battery will last all day.

The additions unveiled today by Nokia, Microsoft and AT&T — the exclusive carrier in the U.S. — erase a few of the criticisms of the Nokia 800 released late last year in Europe as the flagship Windows Phone. In addition to full LTE support, the 900 also gets a front-facing camera.
