HTC Titan II landing March 18th for $200? Xperia Ion, Skyrocket HD, Exhilarate, and Sony Crystal tablet are coming later?
We’re sure you’re probably still trying to get over the possibility of the Nokia Lumia 900 launching with AT&T for a mere $99.99, but the news regarding AT&T isn’t over just yet. And in fact, it appears we’re hearing some additional juicy news that should no doubt get many AT&T customers extremely excited in the coming months.

This time around, it’s in regards to that other 4G LTE Windows Phone – you know, the HTC Titan II that made its debut during CES. According to a leaked Q1 2012 roadmap obtained by BGR, it mentions that AT&T is tentatively planning to launch the HTC Titan II on March 18th for $199.99 with a 2-year agreement. Of course, at that price point, people will look at the possible $100 price attached to the Nokia Lumia 900, but still, it has some advantages – like having a wickedly larger display.

Meanwhile, it’s also being reported that the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, Samsung Exhilarate, and the gorgeous Sony Xperia ion will all be coming out sometime at the end of Q1 – though, exact dates and pricing weren’t mentioned. Interestingly, we’re also being introduced to a new tablet from Sony that AT&T will be planning to launch in the future, however, it’s looking to be an HSPA+ enabled tablet as opposed to offering 4G LTE. Dubbed as the Crystal, the report indicates that AT&T will have it priced at $409.99, but it’s unknown if that is its on-contract or outright pricing – albeit, we’d figure it to be the former.

Well, there you have it folks! It seems that AT&T has many things in store for Q1, which should no doubt keep AT&T customers very content. Knowing that the HTC Titan II will be sporting a $200, would you still considering choosing it over that other flagship Windows Phone?

I'd rather get the Lumia 900 than the Titan II. I think having a 4.3 inch screen would actually be better than 4.7 inches with the VVGA resolution. 4.7 would just be too pixelated for me. Plus, the screen on the Nokia is an AMOLED ClearBlack screen which, from what I've read, is amazing. Add to that the polycarbonate body on the Lumia, and I think it's a better overall phone.

I have a question. I'm not being rude though. Is 184 ppi to low like the screen ppi on the optimus one? The ppi on the HTC Titan is around 200 even. I've seen thr HTC titan in action and it is not as pixalated as you would be led on to think. The 200 ppi still gives quite good legibility. But I would be using the phone mostly for videos not reading so I wouldn't be to precise a judge. ROFL. But the screen is quite good on the Titan and the screen is very bright at over 500 nits.

I am rather speechless on that. A hundred dollars more for the HTC over a Nokia which is rumored to have a huge marketing campaign behind it? Who is pricing these thingamajigs?

How do you mean? Is one too expensive, or too cheap? Personally I think the $99.99 pricetag is a good fit, it's not too low, not too high, so people take it seriously but would give it a closer look versus the Focus S, Titan/Titan II. Price-wise it puts it at a good space between itself and its Nokia brother on T-Mobile, the Lumia 710, which is priced at $49.99

DAMN!!! I was able to wait out the regular Galaxy S2. Then I waited out the black GS2 Skyrocket. I finally cracked when the white Skyrocket came out. Now they're putting out an HD Skyrocket?!! AT&T has really been scumbagging its GS2 customers over. I thought being I got the 3rd version that I would be safe, but nope!!
