AT&T adds the Motorola Atrix 2, Samsung Captivate Glide, and 3 other Android smartphones to lineup at CTIA
At AT&T’s CTIA presentation back in March, they announced their intention to purchase T-Mobile. At CTIA San Diego, they have just added 5 new Android smartphones to their line up. Not quite as exciting as purchasing T-Mobile, but still exciting nonetheless.
First up we have the Motorola Atrix 2, the successor to the original Motorola Atrix. Specs wise, the Atrix 2 spots a dual-core 1GHz processor, 8 GB of internal storage, Android 2.3, a 4.3 qHD display with 960×540 resolution, a 8 megapixel camera with LED flash and 1080p HD recording, a front-facing camera, HSPA+ network connectivity, and 1GB of RAM. The Atrix 2 will also be compatible with the Motorola Lapdock 100. The Atrix 2 will be available for $99.99 on a two year contract starting Oct. 16th.
Second, we have the Samsung Captivate Glide. The Captivate Glide features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 2.3, a Tegra 2 dual-core processor, a sliding QWERTY keyboard, HSPA+ connectivity, a 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
The Samsung DoubleTime has a clamshell shape with two touch screens, one on the inside and one on the outside along with a full QWERTY keyboard in the inside. Despite the unique shape and dual screens, the DoubleTime’s insides are pretty weak: It runs Android 2.2 on a 600MHz Qualcomm CPU.
The Pantech Pocket has a very wide 4-inch display with 800 x 600 resolution. The pocket offers users midrange specs: Android 2.3, a 1GHz processor, and a 5 megapixel camera with HD recording. The pocket is expected to make its debut November 6th, although we do not have an exact price.
Lastly we have the AT&T Avail, a device manufactured by ZTE. The Avail features a 3.5-inch display, Android 2.3, 512 MB of RAM, and a 5 megapixel camera. The Avail will be part of AT&T’s pre-paid roster.
Kudos to AT&T for revealing not only one, but 5 devices at one press conference. Besides the Pocket and Atrix 2, we don’t have any info on pricing or release dates. We will keep you updated on the status of these devices.
