NEW YORK (AP) - AT&T Inc. on Monday said it will sell the Lumia 900, its first Nokia Corp. smartphone that runs Windows Phone software, on April 8, for $100 with a two-year contract.

The Finnish phone manufacturer is counting on Microsoft Corp.’s software to turn its fortunes around and provide it with an entry into the U.S. market. U.S. consumers were not interested in the Symbian software Nokia used for its earlier smartphones.

AT&T, the country’s No. 2 wireless carrier, said in January that it would carry the phone, but did not announce the price or launch date.

On Monday, Dallas-based AT&T said it would also carry another Windows Phone, the Titan II from Taiwan’s HTC Corp. It will 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.

For Microsoft, the partnership with Nokia is a chance to break into smartphones, which are dominated by Apple and Google Inc., through its Android software. Other phone makers have also put out Windows phones, but sales have been slow.
