Nokia Lumia 900 from Rogers

Expanding to the east, the Rogers LTE network is now live in St. John’s making Rogers the first carrier to bring the fastest wireless speeds in Canada to Newfoundlanders. We’re now offering LTE to a total of 11 million Canadians and we’ll double our coverage this year with plans to expand to more than 25 cities in 2012, including Halifax and surrounding areas.

With Rogers LTE network, customers have access to speeds similar to broadband connections, making it easier to use mobile devices to download apps, stream HD videos and music or play on-line games, with virtually no delays or buffering.

In addition to expanding our network, we’re also expanding our leading lineup of LTE smartphones with two new exclusive LTE devices available this spring:  the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC One X.

Nokia Lumia 900

After winning best in show at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this year from CNET and a variety of prominent websites, the Nokia Lumia 900 marks a strong leap forward for Nokia it will be exclusively coming to Rogers as Canada’s first Windows Phone LTE smartphone.

The Nokia Lumia 900 is packed with a large 4.3-inch ClearBlack AMOLED touchscreen, 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor and runs on the LTE network, offering an impressive option for new and loyal Windows smartphones users.  If you’re looking for a smartphone and camera in one, this device also features Nokia’s exclusive Carl Zeiss 8MP back-camera with F2.2 large aperture and 28mm wide angle lens for snapping high-quality images on-the-go.

  1. I thought you were going to start the pre-order yesterday for the lunia 900

  2. Does the nokia lumia 900 support Chinese language display and input? I know there are smart phones out there that cant yet.

      HI DIN,
      Yes, I can confirm that Chinese language and keyboard are supported in Lumia 900 sw 12082.

  3. Is the Lumia 900 only going to be released in Black or will the Cyan, Magenta, and White models be coming too?

  4. When will you be taking pre-orders for the HTC One X???

      Hi Shaun,
      We don’t have details to share at this time, but be sure to follow us on Twitter @RogersBuzz for the latest updates.

  5. It’s available ! https://twitter.com/#!/RogersBuzz/status/182476371677810688

    Question : Do you have a date for the avaibility ? And I have more that 30 months on my contract, what would be the price I pay for the Lumia 900 if I upgrade to it ?

      Hi Matthieu,
      As advised on Twitter, we’ll share more details closer to launch. Thanks for your enthusiasm!

  6. I guess it makes sense to have the black Lumia 900 for the Dark Knight promotion. Can’t wait for the cyan or white versions to be available though. It would be nice to have all colors available when the Lumia 900 finally arrives in-stock.

  7. My three year contract is coming to an end with rogers and i would love to renew it for this phone .. please let me know the release data !!!

    • MattthieuGD says: March 23rd, 2012 a 9:34pm

      I think April, 9th since it’s the date of the launch for AT&T and the April, 10th is the limit to enroll into the Batman thing

  8. when do you think the HTC ONE X will be released?

  9. wow .. AT&T Released the details !!! .. April 9th .. $100 for two yr contract .. that’s a pretty sick price for this flagship phone !!!!

  10. Will there be other color variants of the lumia 900 at lunch or later? particularly the white.
    i’m on bell planning to switch to rogers only if there’s a white or blue lumia 900 coming soon, otherwise i’ll just stay on bell and buy the international version.
    I’ll appreciate a reply ASAP given that i’m not very patient and in need of a new phone ASAP

      Hi Stash,

      We’ll share more details but I can already confirm the black version.
      Thanks for your feedback!
