If Design Within Reach made cell phones, they would probably look like the Nokia Lumia 900, an LTE Windows Phone for AT&T that costs an extremely reasonable $99.99.

A 4.3-inch AMOLED screen with ClearBlack display technology keeps Web sites and images looking great with high contrast and lots of brightness.

The Lumia 900 is too large to fit comfortably in my front pocket, but the smooth matte finish makes it easy to slip into my back pocket.

Nokia loves to share that the Lumia 900 has Carl Zeiss optics. The 8-megapixel camera took some really stellar outdoor shots (you'll see some later,) but also took some poorer indoor and outdoor pictures, depending on the scenario.

Stick a straight "key" into the top of the phone to get to the micro-SIM card.

That's the power button in the middle. I don't love the placement, but I did get used to it.

Nokia added some partner apps and some of its own, like Nokia Maps, in its section of the Marketplace.

I loved the one-touch focus-and-snap of the Lumia 900, but it does slow down the shutter. It works really well on stationary objects.

It's great there are more white and red phones out there. The blue version of the Lumia 900 stuck out among a sea of black phones one my desk.

The iPhone 4S (top), Nokia Lumia 900 (middle), and Samsung Focus S (below) are all at max brightness showing the same online HD image. The Lumia 900 is the brightest by far, with the greatest range of color, but it exaggerated the greens and made them look plastic and fake.

The Lumia 900 didn't do as well taking photos from a distance. (These photos have been resized, but are otherwise untouched.)

It took more than a dozen tries to get this pooch to hold still long enough to take this shot. Shutter speed could have been snappier.

I wish I had gotten crisper waves in my beach shots.

Most mural shots come out well, and this is no exception.

I really think that photos in my beach series could have come out sharper. This was one of my best.
