AT&T is hitting the ground running in 2012, opening the year with two Windows Phones. Both the HTC Titan II and the Nokia Lumia 900 are hitting shelves on March 18th. The HTC Titan II can be yours for $199.99 on a new two-year contract. It features a whooping 4.7 inch screen, a 16megapixel camera, 1.5 GHz processor, and will run on AT&T’s LTE(4G) network. The Nokia Lumia 900 on the other hand will be only $99.99 but still gives the Titan II a run for it’s money. The Lumia has a slightly smaller 4.3 inch screen, with a 8megapixel camera on the back, and a 1.4 GHz processor, however, it has a larger battery compared to the Titan II. Like the Titan II, the Lumia is also compatible with AT&T’s LTE(4G) network.

This year is starting off very well for Microsoft and their Windows Phone line, look for them to continue to make a push in the smartphone market throughout the rest of this year

It seems that Microsoft has accidentally let the cat out of the bag by revealing that Xbox Live games will be making their way to devices beyond Windows Phone. No word specifically on which operating systems (iOS or Android) will be the next target, however, a Microsoft spokesperson did have this to say when speaking with Forbes,

“While the Xbox Live experiences and games always work best on the Windows platform, we understand that some Xbox fans may be using other types of devices. To satisfy that need, we are working to extend a few of our Xbox experiences and titles to other platforms.”

With so much Apple action over the past few days we felt the need to throw in some Google announcements to mix things up a little. Google released Google Music version 4.1.512, which fixes minor bugs such as: shuffle mode, and syncing music on multiple Google accounts. Google Music is only for Android devices running 2.2 or higher. Follow the link to receive your update and continue to enjoy your music that you’ve stored in the cloud.
