Microsoft and Nokia have a lot riding on the Nokia Lumia 900, the new flagship Windows Phone handset. The handset represents one of Microsoft’s biggest pushes to get Windows phones in the minds of consumers — an effort that’s being helped along by a huge advertising push from AT&T.
For a complete review you can check out The Post’s Joshua Topolsky’s latest column, but here are some quick hits for those looking for a little shopping advice.
Pro: This phone looks good. When you pull it out of your pocket, friends who are interested in gadgets are going to react — and likely in a positive way. The phone feels well-built and fits well in hand for long conversations or marathon texting sessions.
Con: It’s a bit form over function. The hardware is great, but the software needs some work, as does the Microsoft app ecosystem. And this may sound nit-picky, but I don’t like the layout of the buttons on this phone. The power button is far too easy to hit by accident, and I often ended up locking the phone screen when I wanted to hit the volume rocker.
