AT&T Unveils Six New LTE-Enabled Android Devices
Up until recently, AT&T’s Android offerings have been somewhat lacking compared to the other major American carriers. And while the Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy S II Skyrocket have certainly helped close the gap, there’s no denying that other carriers simply pack a stronger punch.
Luckily for Ma Bell customers, AT&T is bolstering its Android arsenal with six new LTE-enabled and Android-packing devices: the Samsung Exhilarate, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, Sony Xperia Ion, Pantech Burst, the Pantech Element tablet, and the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone/tablet hybrid.
Of most interest, the Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD features a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor and the same 4.65″ HD Super AMOLED screen as the Galaxy Nexus—all while keeping itself slim-and-trim at just 9.279 mm. The Xperia Ion packs a 4.6″ HD display, 12 MP rear-facing camera, and a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor. The Pantech Element, as its name suggests, is a weatherproof tablet for those who take tablet computing to the extreme. The Pantech Burst is a 4.0″ 1.2 GHz dual-core phone, and it marks Pantech’s first truly high end device. The Galaxy Note, already released in Europe, is an HD-packing tablet/phone hybrid with S-pen functionality for easy copy/paste and note-taking. And finally, the Exhilarate boasts a 4″ screen and eco-friendly construction.
