AT&T has introduced five of its newest upcoming Android smartphones, bringing to 19 the carrier’s grand total of Android smartphones released this year.
The upcoming phones are the Motorola ATRIX 2, Samsung Captivate Glide, Samsung DoubleTime, Pantech Pocket, and AT&T Avail.
A next-generation successor of the original Motorola ATRIX, the Motorola ATRIX 2 will boast of faster power and great entertainment with its 4G capabilities and a 4.3-inch high-definition (960×540 resolution) display. Browsing is also easy with Motorola’s webtop application, which allows you to surf with a full Firefox browser. It also features an HDMI cable–though not included in its box–that allows you to connect your phone to any HD monitor.
The phone also sports features that will make it a great pocket-sized personal business partner: microSD card encryption, enhanced Exchange options, enterprise-grade VPN, and personal information management.
It also gives you hands-free access to your remotely stored media files through the preinstalled ZumoCast app.
Samsung will truly captivate its users with the side-sliding QWERTY keyboard on the Samsung Captivate Glide. The Android QWERTY phone will feature enhanced Exchange ActiveSync, task synchronization, and global address–a perfect combination for on-the-go professionals. It also keeps your data safe with its virtual private network and device encryption.
The Samsung DoubleTime features two touchscreens–an internal and an external screen–designed into a clamshell form factor. At the same time, it also features a full-flip keyboard. The phone comes in pink and white, and also features voice recognition, drag-and-drop widgets, dedicated function key for shortcuts, and an expandable menu.
Though expected to provide mid-range performance, the Samsung DoubleTime will be perfect for those seeking a unique design on their Android phone.
Although expected to offer mid-range performance, the Pantech Pocket fits an 800×600 resolution on a 4-inch display and allows you to access AT&T hotspots for a fast, convenient, and reliable broadband connection.
The AT&T Avail from ZTE is one for those who prefer to stay on top of their mobile usage while enjoying an affordable option for experiencing Android on a smartphone. The AT&T Avail is available for prepaid customers.
With the announcement of these five new smartphones from AT&T, consumers will be having a hard time choosing which phone will fit their style. Whether you shop for phones according to personal style, device performance, social networking needs, or business related needs, all are found on the shelves of AT&T.
