The three new handsets and one tablet will be available over the coming months and will give consumers that many more decisions to have to make when trying to pick out their new Android device. Here’s a quick look at all four new AT&T devices.
Samsung Galaxy Express
The Samsung Galaxy Express fills the void on the middle-to-upper tier offerings in the AT&T line up. That’s right, they have so many phones that there are now tiers between tiers. The 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display will give users a great view of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and images captured on the 5-megapixel rear-facing camera. The 1.5GHz dual-core processor have the phone running fast and the 2000mAh battery will keep it going.
Samsung Galaxy Rugby ProCheck out our review of the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro smartphone.
Designed for people with a more rugged outer shell while maintaining its smarts, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is designed to take a beating. It’s probably best for people with a rough-and-tumble jobs. So on-site engineers or tax auditors or something along those lines, we’d imagine. We’re not really sure as we spend our days typing on keyboards. What we do know, is that it comes with a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, and enhanced Push-to-Talk capabilities. No word on operating system (what version of Android), processor, battery, RAM, or any of the other details one would expect from a phone announcement. It will have full phone data encryption though, so add secret agents to the list of professions that would use this handset.
