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

The computer does things faster, better, and more efficiently than any single device designed specifically for one specific purpose.

Replacing the Radio

The radio was once the focal point of people’s lives. It was where everyone listened to the newest music. People began their days by listening in to their favorite morning talk shows. There was a radio in every home, and you could often see people carrying portable radios with them. You no longer need a radio to enjoy your favorite stations; all you need is a computer.
