The award-winning Nokia Lumia 900 combines the best design and Internet
experience into one beautiful smartphone

TORONTO, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ – Today, Nokia Canada announced that the award-winning third smartphone in the Nokia Lumia
family, the Nokia Lumia 900, is now available in Canada exclusively at
Rogers Communications. Named “Best of CES” for all smartphones by CNET,
the Nokia Lumia 900 is the first of Nokia’s Windows Phone-based range
to feature high-speed LTE connectivity. Having the largest display of
all Nokia phones, it delivers a rich content experience from a phone
that still fits easily in your hand.

The Nokia Lumia 900 features a 4.3-inch AMOLED ClearBlack display for
rich, bright images both indoors and out. It boasts faster connection
speeds thanks to Rogers’ cutting-edge LTE technology, and a
long-lasting 1830 mAH battery.

The primary 8-megapixel camera includes Nokia’s exclusive Carl Zeiss
optics, with large aperture and wide angle focal length (28mm) for
high-quality, uncropped images even in low-light conditions. It also
has a 1-megapixel front-facing camera that boasts a wide angle lens
that captures sharp, bright images right out of the box.

The Nokia Lumia 900 also comes equipped with signature Lumia
experiences, such as Nokia Drive, which delivers a full-fledged
personal navigation device (PND) with free, turn-by-turn navigation and
dedicated in-car-user-interface. Available from Marketplace is the
Nokia Maps app, which provides quick access to maps of more than 190
countries worldwide.

“The launch of the Nokia Lumia 900 in Canada signals our commitment to
bringing the best phones into the Canadian market,” said Richard White,
General Manager for Nokia Canada. “It is impeccably designed with clean
lines and a camera that rivals stand-alone digital cameras on the
market today.  Combine that with the people-first Windows Phone
experience and the Rogers’ LTE network – and it’s clear that this phone
delivers an unsurpassed mobile experience.”

The Nokia Lumia 900 is available in black exclusively at Rogers
Communications on April 9 for $99.99 with select 3-year plans. For more
