The Samsung Focus 2 is the latest entry in the company's popular series of Windows Phone handsets, improving on prior models with the addition of 4G LTE connectivity.

Description

The Samsung Focus is a Windows Phone 7 handset that features a capacitive Super AMOLED 4-inch screen, a 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 390 minutes of talk time, 6.9GB of internal storage, and a 5-megapixel camera that shoots in 720p.

Nokia's Lumia 900 represents their first big push back into the US smartphone market. The device runs Windows Phone 7.5 and includes a 1.4GHz CPU, 512MB RAM, a Carl Zeiss rear camera, and a 4.3-inch AMOLED display — an improvement over the Lumia 800 screen.
