The annual Consumer Electronics Show opened today in Las Vegas, with Steve Ballmer once again providing the keynote. Ballmer’s speech included demonstrations of the first LTE-based Windows Phones, announced by Microsoft partners Nokia and HTC and available exclusively from AT&T in North America.
The Nokia Lumina 900 features a gorgeous 4.3-inch screen, sharp 8 megapixel camera with exclusive Carl Zeiss optics, and a front facing camera for video chats—all set in a sleek polycarbinate unibody.
The HTC Titan II features the biggest touchscreen of any Windows Phone (4.7-inch WVGA). It’s fast, with a 1.5 gigahertz Snapdragon processor, and delivers a great front-facing camera for video chat and a 16-megapixel rear camera with a fast wide-angle lens.
