The Nokia Lumia 900 is todayâ€™s handset du jour, and with any new handset, you have to wonder: Whatâ€™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 itâ€™s bold and beautiful, but if you want to actually use a phone, itâ€™s whatâ€™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 4Sâ€™s eight and the Galaxy Nexusâ€™ 12. In my testing, though, battery life performed just as well as that of the iPhone, if not better.
