The Nokia Lumia 900 is today’s handset du jour, and with any new handset, you have to wonder: What’s it hiding inside? Tech Republic has pried apart the brand-new Windows Phone handset to show us its silicon innards.

The Nokia Lumia 900 is the newest Windows Phone handset on the block. On the outside it’s bold and beautiful, but if you want to actually use a phone, it’s what’s on the inside that counts. The Lumia 900 only costs $100 (albeit on a subsidized contract), and it looks like Nokia has managed to use a number of inexpensive parts to reach this price point.

That bright shell is a single piece of polycarbonate, which helps make the overall construction quality of the device very sound. But the unibody design does make getting inside the device fairly tricky: You need to use the SIM removal tool to remove the SIM, and then pry the display off using a flat tool on the side where the SIM was.

Inside, the 900 boasts a 1.4GHz single-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S2 processor, 512MB of DRAM and 16GB of NAND flash memory. It uses a handful of other Qualcomm chips for the wireless modem, for power management integrated chips, and for the RF transceiver.

The Lumia 900 actually has a smaller battery capacity than flagship competitors: The 1,830 mAh Li-ion battery provides seven hours of talk time, compared to the iPhone 4S’s eight and the Galaxy Nexus’ 12. In my testing, though, battery life performed just as well as that of the iPhone, if not better.
