First 4G LTE Windows Phones Hit Stores

[Techtaffy Newsdesk]

AT&T launched two new devices, the Nokia and the HTC Titan II, the first Windows Phones available on the mobile operator’s 4G long-term evolution (LTE) network.

The Nokia Lumia 900 is getting what AT&T calls ‘hero status,’ which means the company will make it the primary device in marketing for a given promotional period. The Nokia Lumia 900 will sell for $99.99 with the activation of a two-year service contract. The Nokia Lumia 900 comes in two colors, cyan and matte black (with a white version coming soon), and sports a one-piece polycarbonate design and true color manufacturing process, instead of paint. The phone has a 4.3-inch active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) display, which makes it easy to view in sunlight or black light; a 1.4 GHz Snapdragon processor; an 8 megapixel camera with an exclusive Carl Zeiss wide-angle lens; and a 1 megapixel front-facing camera.

The HTC Titan II, the next-generation Titan device, will be available for $199.99 with a two-year service contract. It features the most powerful camera yet among Windows Phones, at 16 megapixels. The Titan II also has a dedicated image processor and a back-illuminated sensor for low lighting. It has a 4.7-inch display, also the largest among Windows Phones, and a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor

To mark the launch of the first 4G LTE  Windows Phones, Microsoft set up Free-Time Machines (FTMs) across the country, promotions where Microsoft is driving across the point that Windows Phone does everyday tasks faster, and frees up the user, saving her time.
