Nokia Lumia 900 Smartphone Makes Life Easy! Giveaway!!


I recently had the opportunity to review the new Nokia Lumia 900. The Lumia 900 belongs to that category of phones known as smartphones...and after a few weeks of use, I can see why! Basically, whatever you need from your electronic device, the Lumia can do. I am honestly amazed at all the apps, tools, and uses for this little (just over 4 inches) device.


It also came with a green case :)

Because a description of the Nokia Lumia could last several pages, I'll just share some of the highlights (for me) and then include some specs from Nokia. So, here goes:

1. The Nokia Lumia 900 is, after all, a phone. I received great reception, even in some areas that have pretty spotty pickup. The audio is clear and loud; with a volume limit of 30, you don't have to worry about being able to hear the conversation. 


2. With a 16GB drive, you have plenty of room for music, videos and photos. I loaded mine with my "Exercise" playlist, and now bring the Lumia along on my 2-mile aerobic walks every morning. This means one less item to carry, and gives me the ability to use my bluetooth headphones for listening...and if I get a phone call, it's easy to swap over to the call.



3. I never have to worry about packing my camera, as the Lumia 900 has an 8MP rear-facing camera (with flash!) and a 1MP front-facing camera for video chatting, etc. While it's obviously not a DSLR, the camera does capture great shots, both indoor and out. I also love having the flash for those dark night shots!

Also works great for close-up shots! (Apple cinnamon crepes :)

4. I love the 4G capability of the Lumia 900! I can check my email while I'm out shopping, navigate my way to an unfamiliar address, or post updates on Facebook while sitting at a restaurant. The maps/navigating is a huge help, as I do a lot of traveling!


5. The organizing tools are amazing! I can set alarms for certain days of the week, weekends, or weekdays. I can keep track of upcoming events, meetings, and appointments. I can calculate and budget with the Lumia 900, and keep track of finances. This is literally a 1-stop organizing station!


6. The games available for the phone are great for keeping the kids occupied during long drives, or wait times at various places. A couple weeks ago we ended up sitting around for an hour waiting for something, and the children happily played Shuffle Party, Chess and Ball Maze. I didn't hear one comment about the lengthy wait!


These are just a few of the reasons that I love the Nokia Lumia 900! It's available in 4 colors, so you can choose whatever suits your style. Before we get to the giveaway, I'll share some of the stats...for more detailed information, visit the Nokia website.
