It"s going to be a bigger day for Windows Phone on April 8th than we first thought. Following the official announcement that the Windows Phone-based Nokia Lumia 900 will go on sale on that day on AT&T, Engadget reports that that same wireless provider will also begin selling the HTC Titan II on that same day. Unlike the Lumia 900, the Titan II will be sold on AT&T for a relatively pricey $199.99 with a new two year contract when compared to the 900.
The HTC Titan II is basically an upgraded version of the original HTC Titan smartphone, which made its debut in November in the US. This new version was first announced at CES 2012 in January and has most of the same hardware features as the first Titan with a big 4.7 inch screen, a 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S2 processor and a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera.
The two big hardware changes for the Titan II are that it will support AT&T"s faster LTE wireless network and that it will have a rear facing camera with 16 megapixels. It remains to be seen if those two features will be enough to justify the $199.99 price tag compared to the Lumia 900"s more reasonable $99.99 price point.
