Hands-on: Nokia Lumia 900, THE Windows Phone [video]

At the International Consumer Electronics Show 2012 in Las Vegas this week, Finnish mobile phone leader Nokia debuted the Lumia 900, its first smartphone designed specifically for the United States market. We got to play with it quite a bit, and here's a runthrough of the device's strong points.

The Lumia 900 follows the same design ethic as the N9 and Lumia 800, with a single piece polycarbonate body, gently rounded sides and blunted top and bottom edges. Nokia has equipped the device with all the features that U.S. media and consumers complained were missing in the N9 and 800: 4G LTE connectivity, larger screen size, and a forward-facing camera.

We're curious to hear what you think about this device in the comments section. We talked to quite a few onlookers at the Nokia booth on the CES showfloor, and the only negative comment we heard about it actually had nothing to do with the device itself.

With an couple of undeniably desirable flagship phones (this one and the HTC Titan II,) it seems the main concern among consumers now is the comparative scarcity of apps for the Windows Phone platform.
