Finally got my Nokia Lumia 900

Nokia Lumia 900

Now after using the HTC TITAN for a while I finally got my Nokia Lumia 900 here in Switzerland. My first Windows Phone was the HTC Trophy which I got back in in November 2010. One year later I got the HTC TITAN and the Nokia Lumia 800.

Now since yesterday I own the Nokia Lumia 900, and I think it is the best Windows Phone at the moment.

 

Some of the key features or reasons for the Lumia 900 are:

  • Great Nokia build quality
  • Awesome design
  • 4.3 inch screen perfect size for me
  • Great display colors
  • Good 8 MP camera
  • Internet Sharing (still waiting for a update for my Lumia 800)
  • super fast (Like in every other Windows Phone)
  • excellent antenna performance (I am at some places where I get really bad signal, and other phones like the iPhone and the HTC Titan are dropping calls from time to time, my Lumia 900 gets a much better reception.)
  • Windows Phone OS

You can get some more information about the Nokia Lumia 900 on the Nokia Website.

Update:

btw. my Nokia Lumia 900 is running Windows Phone Tango (OS Version: 7.10.8773.98.) with Internet Sharing

The new SkyDrive rocks…

Microsoft SkyDrive

Today Microsoft released some new SkyDrive Apps for Windows and Mac and alos offers 25GB of free online storage. I really love SkyDrive to keep my files in sync and access them everywhere. With the new apps the integration is much better, easier and 25GB of free storage is a fair deal.

Making personal cloud storage for Windows available anywhere, with the new SkyDrive

With the new Apps, SkyDrive is integrated in your operating system. If you need some online Storage, Cloud Sync or you are already using a service like Dropbox or GDrive you should have a closer look at Microsoft SkyDrive.

Windows Phone – New Nokia Lumia 900 Ads

Some days ago Nokia launched the Lumia 900 together with AT&T.

And here some ads about the smart phone beta test ;-)



My new Nokia Lumia 800 – Windows Phone

Nokia Lumia 800

Last week I got my Nokia Lumia 800 and even I already have read a lot of articles and reviews about it, I am impressed about the beautiful design and the build quality.

The first problem noticed was the battery life. My HTC Titan had something like two days of battery life and the battery of my Lumia 800 was empty after just one day. At the same day I also got the Windows Phone update (7.10.8107.79) and I deactivated the Exchange Push for my work mail account. Now the battery life seems to be the same or better than on my HTC Titan.

Nokia Lumia 800

Now the Lumia 800 (3.7-inch screen) cloud be a bit bigger for me (the Lumia 900 with a 4.3-inch Screen could be perfect). I also miss the Internet Sharing feature, but there should be an update soon to activate this feature.
Overall I really like the Nokia Lumia 800 and it will be my main phone for the next months.
