Nokia Lumia 900 to pack 4.3-inch screen, Windows Phone Tango

Rumoured specs of the Nokia Lumia 900 have surfaced, with Nokia's next Windows Phone blower said to pack a 4.3-inch screen.

Rumoured specs of the Nokia Lumia 900 have surfaced, with Nokia's next Windows Phone blower said to be packing a 4.3-inch screen, and touching down early next year.

The news comes via Boy Genius Report, which claims a source has delivered the lowdown on Nokia's newest mobile.

With a 1.4GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera reported to be in the offing, the Lumia 900 is likely to be pretty similar to the recently released Lumia 800, with a bigger screen being the main difference.

The Lumia 900 could also arrive running the next version of Windows Phone. Code named 'Tango', it will be the follow-up to the (confusingly) similarly named 'Mango', which is the current version.

The Lumia 900 is rumoured to arrive on the scene in early 2012, so perhaps we'll get a glimpse at the CES show in Las Vegas, which takes place in January.

You might think it's crazy for Nokia to announce another Windows Phone so soon after the Lumia 800's release, but bear in mind our unfortunate American cousins haven't been given a glimpse of the Lumia 800 yet, so the Lumia 900 could be heading stateside. Here's hoping it comes to the UK too.

We think we know what the Lumia 900 will look like -- a curiously large Nokia Windows Phone cropped up in a promo video recently , boasting some attractive curved edges.

The Lumia 800 is causing quite a stir, with our own Rich Trenholm deciding he likes it way better than the boring old iPhone . But will this stylish bit of kit be enough to put Nokia back on top, and make Windows Phone as popular as Android and iOS?
