Carrier set to launch six new LTE devices

At a special event ahead of CES, AT&T has announced that it is set to launch six new LTE devices early this year. The offerings include Samsung's Galaxy Note, Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD and Exhilarate; Pantech's Element and Burst; and Sony's Xperia ion. The Note, a 5.3-inch device that fits somewhere between smartphones and tablets, was the subject of several recent leaks.

The large display is produced using Super AMOLED technology and offers a resolution of 1280x800. Users can take advantage of the included S Pen stylus to produce sketches, take notes, or draft documents using handwriting instead of a keyboard.

The Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD serves as an improvement over the standard Galaxy S II, upgrading from a 480x800 display to a 720p Super AMOLED Plus panel paired with a dual-core 1.5GHz processor.

The Exhilarate features eco-conscious construction, produced from 80 percent post-consumer recycled materials. Other features include a four-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen and dual cameras.

The Pantech Element tablet is a budget model that serves as the company's first LTE-equipped Android tablet. Despite its $300 price tag, the eight-inch tablet offers waterproof construction and dual cameras. The Burst smarthpone also maintains a relatively low price point, bringing a four-inch AMOLED panel for $50 with a new two-year contract.

Sony's Xperia ion is said to be the electronics maker's first LTE-equipped smartphone, with a 4.6-inch 720p display and a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. The handset also offers a 12-megapixel primary camera paired with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing sensor.
