LTE-Capable Windows Phone Launch Scheduled For Next Year

A good majority of people don’t prefer to go for Windows Phone platform. It is a little unfortunate for the platform that people don’t even give it a chance over other OS. Perhaps, the major reason for this is that majority of the customers equate cost with quality and in this sense Windows Phone are inexpensive.

It seems that Redmond Company has taken this into consideration and planning to launch some higher-end devices in the coming year.

Microsoft and its partners will reportedly launch three new LTE-capable Windows Phones earlier next year, reports WinSupersite’s Paul Thurrott (it has yet to disclose the sources, but also ensures that the news is authentic).

The three LTE-capable devices will include the Nokia Ace, HTC Radiant and Samsung Mendel, which are all run on AT&T’s 4G LTE network during the first half of 2012, with Ace hitting the market on March 18. Similarly, Thurrott also reports that the recently introduced Nokia Lumia 710, which doesn’t support 4G LTE, will arrive at Verizon camp in April, just three months after hitting T-Mo shelves in January 2012.

However, factually speaking, we don’t have much information available regarding the new LTE Windows Phone, such as “Will they run Mango or Tango?” The leaked road map about the Microsoft’s plans provided by WMPoweruser indicates that Apollo is nowhere near to make its debut until late 2012. It is also not clear whether the next line of Windows Phone would be eligible for Tango update or not.

Whatever the approach Microsoft used, the good thing is that the company is now ready to take on Android with LTE support. If this is going to be true, then Apple would be the last to offer 4G LTE network support in its iOS devices.
