Looks like AT&T will have some very tempting smartphone options this spring. The carrier just confirmed with us that the HTC Titan II , a high-octane Windows Phone, will cost $199.99 and land on shelves April 8.

This joins the upcoming HTC One X , HTC's flagship Android handset along with Nokia's premier Windows Phone, the Nokia Lumia 900 .

Both the Nokia Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II will be the first Windows Phone devices to feature fast 4G LTE data connections. While the Lumia 900 will have a lower $99.99 entry price, AT&T perhaps expects the more expensive Titan II to entice buyers with its high-resolution 16-megapixel camera. Of course, the Lumia's Carl Zeiss optics may trump the Titan II despite its lower 8-megapixel sensor.

Style may also be the deciding factor that the Lumia 900 has in spades. I can't wait until these phones arrive to stack them head-to-head. In the meantime, check out our hands-on with the Nokia Lumia 900 , HTC Titan II , and HTC One X to decide for yourself.
