It’s finally nice to see that AT&T is not basing the success of it’s cell phone market on just one handset. For a while they just concentrated on the iPhone and was a little late to the Android party, but all that has changed over the past couple of years. There is now a feeding frenzy going on, and the video of five new Android phones coming to AT&T is proof of that.
By the time 2011 draws to a close the second largest cell phone carrier would have increased its Android smartphone portfolio by another 19 devices, even though we were only meant to get 12 – not bad going at all. There is a fear that AT&T is rushing out as many devices as they can; Engadget just hopes that they are not sacrificing quality for quantity, which is a fare point to make?
In the video (see below) you can get to see a preview of those five new handsets, which are the Motorola ATRIX 2, Samsung Captivate Glide, Samsung DoubleTime, Pantech Pocket and finally the AT&T Avail. Looking at this list of new Android handsets there seems to be something for everyone. However, there are one or two that stand out above the rest.
Not surprisingly the Motorola Atrix 2 will be a big deal for AT&T, and we just hope that it will be a successful follow up to its predecessor? Looking at the specs we cannot see why not, it’s all there for the taking; we just hope that consumers warm to it, but the launch of the iPhone 4S and the Nexus Prime could put a spanner in the works.
Out of the five new AT&T Android handsets, we expect the carrier to market the Avail more than the others, as it forms part of their prepaid lineup. Which of the five new devices will AT&T have the most success with?
