Earlier this month, Nokia took the wraps off the Lumia 900, a smartphone equipped with a 4.3-inch high-resolution display, 512MB of RAM, an 8-megapixel camera, and the Windows Phone Mango operating system. The new Windows Phone OS has been a hit among reviewers, but the phones that it runs on have so far been rather lukewarm. Nokia hopes to change that with this Lumia line, which has performed consistently well in Europe

And according to tech reporter Paul Thurrott, the Lumia 900 could be arriving as soon as March – earlier than many tech insiders had suspected. Thurrott, who runs the SuperSite for Windows blog, made the comments during a video interview from the floor of CES, the annual electronics show in Las Vegas.

The timing would be propitious for Nokia, which could get out in front of the crushing press blitz sure to surround the next iPhone, while sustaining the already high level of Lumia buzz. The Lumia 900, after all, has been called "one of the hottest phones" at CES – a svelte, a high-powered piece of eye-candy.
