    AT&T Inc. announced Monday said it will begin selling Nokia's Lumia 900 on April 8 for $100 with a two-year contract.

    The Lumia 900 is the Finnish phone maker's first smartphone that runs Windows Phone software. It's counting on Microsoft's software to turn its fortunes around and provide it with an entry into the U.S. market.

    U.S. consumers weren't interested in the Symbian software Nokia used for its earlier smartphones.

    Dallas-based AT&T is the country's No. 2 wireless carrier. On Monday, it also said it would carry another Windows Phone, the Titan II from Taiwan's HTC Corp. It'll cost $200.

    Both phones can use AT&T's new "LTE" wireless broadband network for faster downloads.

    T-Mobile USA, the No. 4 U.S. carrier, already sells one of Nokia's Windows Phones.
