With CES kicking off on Monday, a new report all but confirms that Nokia will introduce the Windows Phone-based Lumia 900 at the Las Vegas event tomorrow, as well as the phone maker’s plans to sell the smartphone through AT&T.
Two people with knowledge of these plans spoke on condition of anonymity with New York Times, even though the product has yet to be announced. In addition, there have been numerous previous reports claiming Nokia will debut the sleek metallic Lumia 900 at the Consumer Electronics Show.

The Lumia 900 is expected to sport a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED display, along with other high-end features, including a 1.4GHz single-core processor and an 8MP camera. A leaked image of the device surfaced last week, giving us the closest look yet. In the picture, the Lumia 900 features 4G support, which matches up nicely to reports that the phone will run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network.
Nokia and Microsoft forged a partnership last year with hopes that their handsets will catch on with consumers. Nokia unveiled its first lineup of Window Phone-powered handsets in October, and then gave the world a sneak peak of the Lumia 900 in November.
While there are other phone manufacturers that create devices with Microsoft’s software as well as Google’s Android platform, Nokia does not have plans to develop Android phones. “We are doing our best work for Windows Phone,” said Stephen Elop, the chief executive of Nokia and a former Microsoft executive, as originally stated in the New York Times.
While the Nokia Lumia 900 is still technically under wraps, be sure to check back tomorrow do more details, as Brighthand‘s editors and staff will be at CES to get a first look at the Windows Phone device.
