Nokia Lumia 900 teardown
Released in April 2012, the Nokia Lumia 900 is an attractive Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) handset. But, does it have the hardware to compete with Samsung's Galaxy Nexus and Apple's iPhone 4S? Following along as I crack open the Lumia 900 for a look at the hardware inside.

The phone looks good and is slim. Only time will tell, when owners of this phone will rate it and make comments.
Any thoughts about which supplier is providing the 16gb embedded flash? I think Hynix is providing the flash in the Lumia 800....
Two interesting things that need to be said: 1) Nokia dont change the way the assembly theirs devices. Little changes, we can see here. 2) Why now internal battery? What this means? Perhaps (a)that the phone will resist less than the battery or (more obviously) or other better phone will replace it, and this model will be disposal very soon (b) they want to give an idea to the clients that this phone is some like tablet, and if they buy one of this, no need to buy anything else. Thanks for that. Hugs form Brazil
