ATT ships LTE Android phones, new Windows Phones

AT&T had one of its bigger non-Apple phone launches in recent memory on Sunday after it launched four headlining smartphones. Its first two LTE smartphones, the HTC Vivid (reviewed) as well as the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket, headlined the group. Both run Android 2.3 on 4.5-inch screens and with eight-megapixel back cameras; the Vivid has the slower 1.2GHz dual-core processor but a 540x960 screen, while the Skyrocket's 480x800 screen is made up for through a dual-core 1.5GHz chip.

Prices are unusually left out online, although AT&T had previously set the Vivid at $200 on a contract and the Skyrocket at $250.

Both of Samsung's new Windows Phone 7.5 devices are also making their appearance. The Focus Flash is the budget model of the two with a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen, five-megapixel rear camera, and front facing camera, but the same 1.4GHz single-core Snapdragon as its bigger sibling. The higher-end phone, the Focus S, upgrades mostly through its 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus screen as well as an eight-megapixel rear camera.

Both of the Microsoft-powered phones keep prices down, at $50 on a contract for the Focus Flash and $200 for the Focus S.
