Nokia Lumia 900 approved for China and reportedly arriving in June

Nokia is moving closer to its China launch of the Lumia 900, according to dates reported by Chinese news website Sina Tech. The Lumia 900 was approved for use on GSM and WCDMA networks by State Radio Regulation Committee (SRRC) on April 18, and the website is pointing to a June release for the Windows Phone. The younger brother, the Lumia 800c, was launched in the country back in March.

AT&T has been witnessing expectation surpassing results with the 4G version of Nokia's flagship Windows Phone since its launch earlier this year. Let's not forget the news of the platform market share overtaking the iPhone in China, which should continue to capture more of the market with the introduction of this high-end device. The Lumia 900 sports a 4.3" ClearBlack AMOLED display, 1.4GHz chip, 512MB RAM, and 16GB of storage.

  • * its not platform market share, is it?? from what I've read elsewhere, its only passed the iphone in the past few months' sales figures.. And I honestly find that pretty believable given the huge popularity of all things iApple in China.
  • also, anyone know if this will end up being a 900c (i.e. CDMA)?! if so, i may just hop over to china and pick one up if i can get it eo work on VZ..
  • Yeah I think they mean sales market share...
  • "expectation surpassing results" <== just wondering is this suppose to be the other way around?
  • Am I the only one who finds it curious that China has recieved CDMA varients of the Lumia 800 and now the 900 while U.S. CDMA carriers have nothing? I understand China is a booming smartphone market, but come on. MS only has 2 of the 4 U.S. carriers on board with there products. As a Sprint customer who is dying for a new Nokia device, this is upsetting.
  • Verizon and Sprint will get the Nokia WP8 phones
