Today was the big Nokia announcement and unfortunately, we couldn;t get in for it. But still, we had a small private briefing, at which we were told the Nokia Lumia 900 is now official. We couldn’t see it, that will come tomorrow, but either way, Nokia now has a Windows Phone device in the US. It will launch some time in Q1 of this year, has a 4.3″ screen, 8MP camera and will run exclusively on AT&T’s network. Hopefully I will get a hands on in the coming days and post more then. In the meantime , head on over to Nokia Conversations for a bit more about the device, and an exclusive Stephen Elop video.
Also released to day is the HTC Titan ||, also on AT&T. It’s a Windows Phone device with a huge 16MP camera. Good competition for the Lumia right away.
Other than that, Steve Balmers keynote offered very little that was new (unless you have never seen Windows 8). Probably the biggest news is that for those who are previewing Windows 8, the app store opens Feb 1st.
