1st of 12 planned cities to get LTE services

AT&T is continuing with its planned next round of LTE services. The carrier will be bringing Muncie and Bloomington in Indiana, as well as Bryan-College Station in Texas, on April 8. The 8th is the date that AT&T announced that it would begin shipping two LTE-aware Windows Phones, the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II.

The three cities are part of the next round of 12 cities that AT&T revealed in March would be getting LTE by this summer. The other municipalities include Akron, Canton, and Cleveland in Ohio; Baton Rouge and New Orleans in Louisiana; Staten Island, New York; St. Louis, Missouri; Lafayette, Indiana; and Naples, Florida. The company claims that it now has launched 4G LTE services in 31 markets covering 74 million people.

The Nokia Lumia 900 was announced at CES back in January. The Windows Phone incorporates a 4.3-inch screen with a Qualcomm 1.4GHz Sanpdragon processor. The main camera is an eight-megapixel with a f2.2 aperture lens. Nokia is kicking off the phone with a special event in Times Square on April 6. AT&T is pricing the Lumia 900 at $100 with contract.

The HTC Titan II, also showcased at CES, is a 4.7-inch smartphone. It comes powered by a slightly more powerful 1.5GHz Snapdragon. Its most unique feature is its 16-megapixel rear-facing camera. AT&T has priced the device at $200 with a contract.
