HTC Titan II reportedly set to land at AT&T on March 18th, Sony Crystal tablet may also be comingAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Earlier today a rumor claimed that Nokia's Lumia 900 is heading for AT&T on March 18th for $99.99. That's all well and good, but the Lumia 900 isn't the only new Windows Phone device that AT&T has in the pipeline, as it also took the wraps off of the HTC Titan II back at CES. The good news for those of you anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Titan II is that, if a report out of BGR is accurate, HTC's new Windows Phone isn't far off. The site claims that the same roadmap used as the source of these two AT&T leaks also shows that the Titan II is due on March 18th, the same date as the Lumia 900. Pricing for the new Titan is reportedly set at $199.99 on contract.
That's not the end of the roadmap leaks, though, as the same BGR report claims that AT&T is prepping a Sony-made tablet that's reportedly dubbed the "Crystal" that packs HSPA+ connectivity and a $409.99 price tag. Also in Android news, the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD and Exhilarate are tipped to be landing toward the end of the first quarter. Lastly, BGR claims that the Sony Xperia ion is also due in the latter part of Q1, which is a tad earlier than the Q2 window previously mentioned by AT&T.
So it looks like March 18th could be a pretty big day for AT&T, Windows Phone and fans of Microsoft's mobile platform. If the rumors hold true, customers will have the option of picking up a Lumia 900 with its 4.3-inch display and polycarbonate body or the 4.7-inch Titan II and its 16-megapixel camera, both of which also pack LTE connectivity. Seems like the problem of having to choose between the two would be a good one to have. Are any of you eyeing the Titan II and its 16-megapixel shooter? If you're on the fence, it may be worth your time to check out our hands-on with the handset down below. Just sayin'.
