With the announcement of the Nokia Lumia 900 Nokia has truly started “Rolling Thunder” here in the US Market. So the question is to be asked why should I buy a Nokia Windows phone when there are other Windows Phones out there on the market?
First: Uni-body polycarbonate design
While I have not gotten my hand on Nokia Lumia 900 yet I am lucky enough to own an N9 (which is the same body style) and I can tell you it feels great in your hand. Plus looks ten times better than generic “slab phone” than other manufacturers are currently cranking out en mass.
Second: It’s a Nokia
This means the quality of construction, the amazing signal strength, the years and years of Nokia experience built into every phone. While others have just recently started to produce phones and are still using trial and error on their production phones they are using you as their “phone tester/guinea pig” Nokia is instead relying on two decades of phone manufacturing experience.
Do you remember the quality and build of your first Nokia phone back in the 1990’s? Well believe me it’s still there but now processor speed, RAM, etc… have all come back not only to meet your expectations in a lot of cases it will exceed them.
Third: Software/Operating System
Nokia is no longer leaving you with Symbian (which seemed outdated to many here in the US) they have stepped up and put Windows Phone on their smartphone. Not only is Windows Phone easier to use than Symbian ever was, it is improving at blistering pace. In the past six months there has been many minor builds sent to Windows Phone and one major build of Mango for Windows Phone users. Sometime this year there will be another major build release Tango and than Apollo to follow shortly there after.
Nokia is the ONLY phone manufacture that has an exclusive agreement with Microsoft to “tweak” Windows Phone in anyway they see fit. This means while all the other Windows Phone manufactures are all bringing you same experience only Nokia can deliver to you a better and truly unique Windows Phone experience.
Fourth: Exclusive Content
Also Nokia Windows Phone will have apps that no other manufacturer’s Windows Phone have.
– Nokia Drive, available to download from Windows Phone Marketplace, provides free voice-guided, turn-by-turn navigation with a dedicated in-car user interface that turns the Nokia Lumia 900 into a GPS navigation device.
– The exclusive ESPN sports hub is pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia smartphones, and provides a onestop sports application for news, videos and scores.
– The CNN App for Windows Phones provides the latest news and video from CNN’s reporting around the globe and direct access to iReport, CNN’s participatory news community. Launching globally for free in the next month, the CNN App will be exclusive to Nokia users for 90 days.
– The Univision App will be exclusive to Nokia Lumia users in the U.S. and Puerto Rico for 18 months, delivering unique and exclusive Spanish-language content experiences, including Univision entertainment, sports and soccer coverage, plus news, cooking and local content for different U.S. markets – all in one App.
– A partnership with EA to bring over 20 of the world’s most popular games to the Windows Phone marketplace, coming first to Nokia Lumia devices.
What do you think? Is this enough for you choose a Nokia Windows Phone? Is there anything else you would like to see out of Nokia to here in the US Market that would make you choose an Nokia Windows Phone over say an HTC one?
