Nokia's Lumia 900 is now available to Canadians.

The device, Nokia's flagship Windows Phone 7 model, has been released for Rogers Communications customers, Nokia Canada announced today. The Lumia 900 retails for 99.99 Canadian dollars ($100.03) -- nearly identical to the $99.99 price tag in the U.S. But Rogers customers will only get that pricing with "select" three-year plans.

The Lumia 900, which is available to AT&T customers in the U.S., has gotten off to a stellar start. Just yesterday, the device became the top seller on Amazon, beating out the Droid Razr Maxx from Motorola Mobility and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. In CNET's review of the Lumia 900, it received four stars out of five, earning it an "excellent" rating.

Nokia's Lumia 900 comes with Windows Phone 7 and a 4.3-inch display. It is the first of Nokia's Windows Phone 7 models to boast 4G LTE connectivity.
