CES: AT&T teases new 4G Nokia Windows Phone and details Android additions During today's build up to the opening of this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, which officially starts tomorrow, AT&T has announced some major additions to their lineup of LTE smartphones.
Perhaps the most anticipated announcement was a teaser for the new Nokia Windows Phone, which is set to be formally unveiled at a Nokia press conference in a couple hours. However they did offer significantly more details about the HTC Titan II, which has a 4.7 inch display, a 16 megapixel camera, and is powered by a 1.5GHz Qualcomm.

Leaks, rumors, and general speculation from around the web about the Nokia phone tell us it's an updated version of the Lumia 800 with a bigger display, and of course, LTE support as well. That last part AT&T has officially confirmed.

Today they also officially announced an Android smartphone everyone knew was coming. Samsung's Galaxy Note has been upgraded with LTE support and some new capacitive buttons. They also announced two other Samsung Android models, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD with a 720p (1280720) display and the eco-friendly Exhilarate, which is made from 80% recycled material.

AT&T's lineup of new Android phones will be rounded out by Pantech's Element and Burst and the first smartphone from Sony since their breakup with Ericcson. Like the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, the Sony Xperia ion has a 720p display.

When I think of Nokia.......I can only remember that part in Transformers when the agent from Sector 7 says, "Gotta respect the Japanese, they know the way of the Samurai" and then the blonde says "Nokia is Dutch".

1........I don't know a single solitary soul that owns a Nokia
2........I only know 1 person that owns a Windows phone.
