LTE-ready Nokia Lumia 900 'Ace' details spill ahead of CES

We all know that an LTE-capable Windows Phone from Nokia is imminent at CES. New information sheds a little more light on this U.S.-bound version of the Lumia 800.

It's no secret that the U.S. version of the Nokia Lumia 800 will make its debut at CES this month. There's also little doubt that the Lumia 900, as it's widely expected to be called, will come packed with two important goodies that the global version lacked: LTE support and a front-facing camera.

Our friends over at Pocketnow.com got their eyeballs on a few more details as well: the Lumia 900 (code name: Eloko) will come with a 4.3-inch WVGA display instead of the Lumia 800's 3.7-incher. It will also feature an 8-megapixel camera (of course) and an 1,830mAh battery.

That's not all; a few days after the leak reached our ears, The New York Times also pitched in its confirmation of the Lumia 900, through two sources who spoke on conditions of anonymity.

Although Nokia will announce the phone next week, the word on the street is that the Windows phone won't hit AT&T stores until March.

In addition to the Lumia 900 we expect to see, it's rumored that Nokia will announce at least one other Windows Phone 7.5 Mango handset as well, possibly the more midrange Lumia 719.
