AT&T has two awesome Windows Phones available right now - they're both under $100, and both pack 4G LTE capabilities.  The Samsung Focus 2 is available now for $49.99 and offers a 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU, 4-inch Super AMOLED display, 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD video recording, and a 1,750 mAh battery.  The Nokia Lumia 900 can be had in three colors for $99.99, and sports a 1.4 GHz single-core Snapdragon CPU, 4.3-inch AMOLED display with ClearBlack technology, 8-megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and 720p HD video recording, a 1,830 mAh battery, and a polycarbonate shell.

Andrés Serrato Capote if the windows phone and the windows 8 they had some kind of thing going on. it could be great. I don`t know something like an integration. Windows is everywhere so...
Muthu Kumaran Lumia 710. It's just the perfect specs and price for me.
Lee Phillips Are people really discussing which Windows Phone to purchase??? And can it really be considered a fight? It's like watching elementary kids pretend they are Michael Jordan...
Rafael Almonte Nokia so that I can install Android on it
Renan Gallardo @ Patrick Most likely, they hate it because no matter what specs a new Android device comes with, it's still going to have the same Beta OS... They could throw in all the hardware they want but it's still going to have the same mediocre problems...
Patrick Moyle You Android guys are getting dumber and dumber, I think you're now worse than the isheep...the Lumia is one of the highest rated phones in the planet by those who use it. The people that seem to hate it are the dumb android people who have never used it. Are you really that mad because it is a newer, cleaner, faster, more original os???
Kirk Ngo 900 for sure
Daniel Rivera I think the Lumia 900 because of its 4.3'' super AMOLED display.
