Microsoft’s Ballmer announces new Windows Phone devices
Cecilia KangLAS VEGAS Microsoft opened the International Consumer Electronics Show by introducing much-awaited Windows Phone devices that will struggle to close a canyon-like gap established by leaders Apple and Google.
In a keynote speech, Chief Executive Steve Ballmer announced that Nokia's Lumia 900 and HTC Titan II phones using Windows Phones software will be offered later this year on AT&T's 4G LTE network. Nokia's Lumia 710, using the Windows Phones software, will be available Wednesday to T-Mobile USA customers.
With wide screens that recognize voice and touch, the Windows smartphones are focused on contact lists and allow users to organize contacts into groups. Then the phone creates threads of communication with those people integrating Facebook messaging, Windows Messenger, Twitter in one place, without having to fire up separate apps for each way of communicating. The Lumia and other Windows phones will connect to other Microsoft products such as the XBox game console.
