Phone dates for AT&T leak
A Friday afternoon posting on Engadget is claiming to have the release dates for a number of handsets from various manufacturers coming to wireless provider AT&T. While the dates are tentative, they reveal the first new handset to come to AT&T is most likely the Nokia E71x smartphone, a variant of the stock smartphone due to come to stores on March 24th.
The next expected release is the Samsung Propel Pro on the 19th, a Windows Mobile smartphone that slides to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. Following that up is the Samsung Impression on March 26th, which is a touchscreen slider with a 3-megapixel camera. LG's Xenon, another QWERTY slider, packs a 3-megapixel camera and is apparently finally coming to the provider on April 9th.
The LG Neon will be an EDGE-only phone when it arrives on May 9th. On the same day, a BJ 2 phone from Samsung is expected, with the only known spec being a 3-megapixel camera. The codename suggests it will be a successor in the BlackJack series of handsets.
The last of the dates, June 9th, is reserved for the Sony Ericsson C905.
