After launching the Nokia Lumia 900 as its first LTE smartphone, Nokia is also making the Nokia Lumia 900 available around the world in a DC-HSPA variant, for high speed data connection (42Mbits download) in countries where LTE is not available. We ask Nokia for any other changes. Video after the jump
Just like the LTE version, the global variant of the Nokia Lumia 900 features a 4.3 inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, Carl Zeiss optics, front-facing camera, and runs on Windows Phone. They have the same size and thickness.
The Nokia Lumia 900 DC-HSPA supports GLONASS which the LTE variant doesn’t. GLONASS is a radio-based satellite navigation system operated for the Russian government. It both complements and provides an alternative to the United States’ Global Positioning System (GPS) and is currently the only alternative navigational system in operation with global coverage and of the same precision.
The Nokia Lumia 900 will be available in white, cyan and black, is priced at EUR 480 and also expected to begin shipping in the second quarter of 2012.
