    I'm new to this side of Mobile Nations since I use iOS daily and was using Android daily on my company issued phone. I am a rep for AT&T and I volunteered to try out this new Nokia 900, and I am very excited to use it.

    I use iPhone 4s, was using Samsung Galaxy SII Skyrocket and now I'm using the Nokia Lumia 900. This isn't my first WP as I used the Samsung Focus.

    I can answer questions I guess about the device and what not. I'm learning all the new features it has on 7.5.


    Physically, I think the phone has a great feel to it. I have the cyan colored version and the unibody feels awesome. It has like a matte finish to it and it feels comfortable in the hand. I don't feel like I'm gonna drop it soon and break it like my Samsung or iPhone.

    *UPDATED WITH PICTURES*

    Did the phone come with a skin/ case?

    Does the 900 support internet sharing?

    Is it only going to be available in cyan and black, or will white come eventually?

    I'm also curious as to whether or not it comes with a case. It would be amazing if it did.

    I'm curious about not only the included case, but whether you have any knowledge about aftermarket cases that at&t might be stocking on launch day. I know that it's been very disappointing so far with regards to wp7 cases. Thanks in advance.

    I can't compare the display because I haven't tested it with games or videos just yet. Overall though putting it on high it looks very crisp and clean.

    I just watched Kanye West & Jay-Z - Otis and it looks very clean in HQ, I'd say comparable to my Skyrocket.

    The phone didn't come with a case and I asked the Nokia Rep that came to visit our store if we would offer any, and she stated that she doesn't think we will see cases because of the vibrant colors the phone comes in and they don't want to hide the colors.

    Internet Sharing is available on the phone, I see the options in settings.

    The phone will comes in Cyan, Black, White and Magenta. *Though Magenta won't be carried in AT&T Stores I guess because it represents T-Mobile colors, I laughed when the Nokia Rep told me that.*

    Batter life: I wouldn't know just yet. I haven't even given it a full charge because I keep playing with it.

    Can't answer 1, but my ATT 900 has Internet Sharing option available.

    Very good so far on WIFI only.

    Have not done 3G/LTE tests :( On Wifi, it lasted me 2 full days before died.

    Nokia Rep stated that white was coming later. Didn't specify if later as in along with the others or after launch date later.

    Slightly dissapointing that, unlike the 800, there's no case included. However, it is listed as an accesory for the 900

    Depending on the price I might have to purchase one of those just in case.

    from what I see ur best bet is to turn on ur WiFi or turn ur data off in the settings. The lumia has an outstanding battery. Takes for ever to completely charge it. I wouldn't be to worried about bat life with the LTE.

    Okay, thank you. I doubt I'll see LTE in my area anytime soon anyway. We don't even have HSPA+. On the plus side, with just 3G it sounds like the 900 will last days!

    the phone does have a solid feel and we think the weight is due to the massive battery. The front facing camera blew my mind when it came to quality and clearness. Haven't seen a phone that compares imo. Very responsive just and with the fully function camera button that lets u push half way to focus and the rest of the way to take the pic, can have u forget this is a phone and not a fully functional digital camera.

    All WP devices running current OS build have the option to set your highest data speeds.(edge, 3g, etc) I don't see why they would omit this feature, especially since many areas don't have LTE coverage yet. Just go to Settings>Cellular>Highest Connection Speed
