AT&T and Nokia may announce a 4G LTE Windows Phone at CES 2012

AT&T may announce a Nokia Windows Phone during the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show, WinRumors said on Thursday. Here is where it gets more interesting, though: The Verge said Nokia is supposedly in discussions with AT&T to make a big splash in the U.S. by launching a Lumia-branded Windows Phone with 4G LTE connectivity. If Nokia really wants to turn heads, we expect that it will launch either a tweaked version of its higher-end Lumia 800 device, instead of the watered-down Lumia 710, or a new flagship phone with entirely new hardware. It is possible that Verizon Wireless could get into bed with Nokia for an LTE device as well, but Verizon hasn’t appeared to be a big Windows Phone partner so far. The carrier has launched a single device, the HTC Trophy, while AT&T has launched more than a half-dozen. Windows Phone Tango, the release between Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) and the more significant Apollo update, is also expected to launch in early 2012 with support for LTE, WinRumors said.
