Yesterday, AT&T announced an availability of Android ICS powered Motorola ‘Atrix’ HD Smartphone. The U.S. carrier is offering the device for just $99.99, mentioning three models—Motorola Atrix Black, HD Titanium and HD-Modern White–, having almost the same specifications. Device has been subsidized by AT&T for two years of contracts and fall back to AT&T’s HSPA+ network in the areas without LTE coverage. The device features 8MP camera with digital Zoom, Bluetooth 4.0 LE  support, 1080 video capture and 1780 mAh battery. The device is offering 1280 x 720 pixels screen display resolution on 4.5 inch screen, comparability higher than the screen display resolution (960 x 540 pixels) of 4.3 inch Razr. Besides, Motorola Atrix HD has quad-core 1.5 GHz  processor with 1 GB of RAM.

What would you expect from Android fanatics, whether they will buy Android ICS powered Motorola Atrix or Windows phone-based Nokia Lumia 900 model from the same carrier (offering both the device)?  I’m not blaming to Windows Phone OS’s credibility, but potential buyer will focus on Antrix HD, having super clear high definition display and  HDMI out.

According to a recent report from Asymco, in the U.S., there were 330,000 Lumia users in the last quarter. At present, there’s an intense competition in the market and lots of models such as Samsung Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Nexus, HTC Titan II and Motorola Atrix ‘HD’ are available in the market. Since the launch of Lumia 900, the sales of device have not been so impressive and users are still reluctant to buy the device. Presently, users are more likely to own Android and iOS Smartphones rather to buy other OS based devices. But, the lower price ($49.99) of Lumia 900 model could boost the market share of Windows powered Nokia’s flagship.

At present, AT&T is offering Nokia Lumia 900 model in four different colors–blue, white, black and recently added pink–with two years of contract. We have already gone through with the specifications of Nokia Lumia 900 model, but in nutshell, the device features 4.3-inch screen size, 1.4 GHz processor and 8 MP camera with Carl Zeiss lens. Microsoft has already announced the none of the devices is going to be upgraded with Windows Phone 8 coming this fall, but Lumia 900 will go to Windows Phone 7.8 later this year.

Ironically, Microsoft is still struggling to track the attention of users towards its Windows Phone platform. However, according to a recent survey, 96% respondents (Lumia 900 owners during survey period) accepted that they were either extremely or somewhat satisfied with their Windows Phone powered Nokia Lumia 900 model. Really, this time, the shipments of Lumia 900 is more important for Nokia than Microsoft because at present, everything of the Finnish handset maker is on the stake.
