It looks like AT&T, Nokia and Microsoft have big plans together for the near future. Apart from launching the Nokia Lumia 900 (which will hit the shelves on March 18), the companies reportedly want to bring two other Windows Phone handsets to the US market.
According to The Verge, the upcoming handsets are called Nokia Prodigy and Nokia AC/DC, and both should become available at AT&T sometime later this year. Reportedly, the Nokia Prodigy will be a Windows Phone 8 Apollo “superphone”, while the Nokia AC/DC should be a mid-end device. Sadly, more specific details are unavailable for the time being.
AT&T is currently selling four Windows Phone devices: two launched in 2010 (Samsung Focus and HTC HD7), and two released in 2011 (HTC Titan and Samsung Focus Flash).
