AT&T has announced the latest editions to their Windows Phone 7 handsets today with three new devices being detailed all of which are 4G devices.
Samsung Focus S
The Samsung Focus™ S builds on the success of the award-winning and highest-selling Windows Phone in the U.S., the Samsung Focus™. Featuring a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4 GHz processor, 4G-capable speeds and a thin profile at 8.55 millimeters. It includes front facing 1.3-megapixel and a rear facing 8-megapixel cameras. The Samsung Focus S will find its way into a lot of pockets this fall.
Debuting as the largest screen in AT&T’s smartphone portfolio at 4.7 inches, HTC TITAN™ fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Watch video from AT&T U-Verse Mobile or play Xbox LIVE® games on the largest screen yet for a Windows Phone. Running a 1.5 GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, HTC TITAN will feed the senses.
Samsung Focus Flash
Designed to hit the market packed with value, Samsung Focus™ Flash’s 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen will both fit in pockets and be light on pocketbooks with the full power of Windows Phone 7.5 inside. As fast and lightweight as it is compact, it runs a 1.4 GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera plus front facing camera.
In addition to showing details on these new Windows Phone 7 handsets AT&T also shared their plans to be among the first carriers to release the much anticipated Windows Phone 7.5 update codenamed “Mango”.
AT&T will be among the first to offer the Windows Phone Mango update to its leading portfolio of Windows Phones this fall. Current Windows Phones from AT&T include:
- HTC HD7S™
- HTC Surround™
- LG Quantum™
- Samsung Focus™
With its unique user interface complete with colorful Live Tiles, the next version of Windows Phone, code-named Mango, puts people front and center making it easier to connect and share with friends, family and colleagues so important moments are never missed.
Windows Phone has modern communication built in. Only Windows Phone has a People Hub with one touch access to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter, all built right in. You can group your friends, pin them to your Start screen to get live updates and easily text, email and IM them all at once. Windows Phone even has Facebook Chat, Messenger, check-ins and photo tagging all built-in so you can stay connected without missing a moment.
Windows Phone has the apps you need but takes them a step further. Pin your apps to your Start screen for live updates at a glance. And only Windows Phone connects apps to your searches making them easier to discover and use.
Windows Phone brings you the Internet beyond the browser. It delivers a fast, beautiful web experience with Internet Explorer 9 and hardware acceleration – but it doesn’t stop there. Local Scout provides suggestions and prioritized local search results on restaurants, shopping and things to do so you can live like a local no matter where you are.
I have to tell you this is great news and those of you waiting to see Mango in action are in for a treat. I have had the opportunity to run the new update on my LG Quantum for the last few months or so and it is Windows Phone 7 done right. The integration with social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook is excellent and the ability to see all of your interactions with one contact across many different venues is unmatched.
Many thanks to @manan for the tip on this via Twitter.
