We should expect no less than three different LTE-capable Windows Phone devices next year. Paul Thurrott reports that all three of the LTE-capable handsets will launch only in the U.S. and only on AT&T.




The plans for this news will be officially revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas next month. The three LTE-capable handsets are - the Nokia ACE, HTC Radiant and Samsung Mendel. Nokia's ACE handset is due on March 18, 2012.


Thurrott says that its still unclear whether the new LTE-based devices will come alongside a software update of some kind. There has been rumor of a "Tango" rumored to ship in early 2012, and is for low-end phones. So how that gels with a high-end feature like LTE, is anyone's guess. Windows Phone is finally getting something to fight against Apple with.
