If you've been looking at the Nokia Lumia 900 and wondering if it's going to be available outside of America, then that wait is almost over. Rogers in Canada will be the first to pick up an LTE version, while a "world style" phone with Dual Carrier HSPA support is expected to retail for 480 Euros before taxes and subsidies, with availability during Q2 of this year.

Highlights on the 900 include an 1800mAh battery to keep the smartphone running for as long as possible. The dual carrier HSPA will support connection speeds up to 42.2 Mbps, where supported by networks.

Nokia's software suite for Windows Phone, with the existing Nokia Maps, Drive, and Music will be enhanced with the addition of two more titles. Nokia Reading, a hub for reading and discovering content; and Nokia Transport, an additional navigation tool that integrates timetables of buses, trams, and municipal transport, matching it up with location and time data to help you reach your destination.
