Nokia's Lumia 900 Now On Sale in the UK

Looks like Windows Phone fans in the United Kingdom are finally in luck: The Nokia Lumia 900 has officially landed in the UK. At least, retailer Phones 4u has a shipment and is selling the phone from today.

Last we heard, Nokia had been forced to delay the UK launch of the Lumia 900 because it couldn't keep up with demand for the phone in the United States. Though Nokia insisted that it was still on track to deliver the phone in the second quarter of 2012, retailer Phones 4u adjusted its shipping date from April 27 to May 14. Despite the fact that we're still a few days away from that amended date, it seems the phone has arrived a few days earlier than Phones 4u anticipated.

Engadget reports that Phones 4u got in touch to let the site know that the Lumia 900 had arrived early and would start selling to customers today instead of next Monday. Pop on over to Phones 4u to check out pricing and tariffs for the different carriers that will be supporting the Lumia 900. 

The Lumia 900 is similar to the Lumia 710 and Lumia 800 in appearance but is packing a bit more of a punch under the hood. It boasts a single-core 1.4GHz Snapdragon CPU, a 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED 800 x 480 touchscreen display, 512MB RAM, an 8-megapixel (F2.2, 28mm) camera in the rear with Carl Zeiss optics, and a 1840mAH battery. It's also got support for 4G LTE in the U.S.

    Sort of Yawn. After spending some time with one and a couple other actually older phones. It is at best a marginal improvement over the 710 and 800. The only reason a family member got one was because of the $100 bill credit Nokia was handing out because of their (continuing) "beta test is over" fiasco.

    How has your family member liked it? I assume by your comments, you or someone you know has one of the earlier versions. How have they been?
