The Vivid gets Android Gingerbread skinned with the HTC Sense user interface.
First we have the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket: the long-rumored device can be yours for $0 with a two-year commitment and will offer a .-4.5inch Super AMOLED Plus display, Android .1.5GHz dual-core CPU, 8MP rear camera with a 2MP front-facing cam and 16GB of internal storage space. Well hello gorgeous — both of you! The first two AT&T G LTE handsets will be the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket and the HTC Vivid. AT&T is launching its G LTE network Sunday along with two new G LTE smartphones in a bid to catch up with Verizon, which launched its G LTE network in December. The Vivid has a 1.2.-gigahertz dual core processor,gigabytes of built-in storage, an 1.3-megapixel camera that can shoot 1080p video, a dual LED flash and a 1.3.-megapixel camera in front. Contrary to the carrier’s HSPA+ devices, neither device will have LTE or G as part of their official name.
AT&T’s G LTE data plans will be offered at the same prices as the carrier’s G and G HSPA+ plans. 2.28mm wide angle lens and 1080p HD video recording.
Both versions of the flagship Samsung phone feature Android Gingerbread with a modified user interface, a .-gigahertz dual core processor, an -megapixel rear camera that can shoot up to 00p video, a dual LED flash on the back, a -megapixel camera in front and -gigabytes of built-in storage. Data plans for AT&T’s LTE smartphones will remain the same, with 15$ getting you 200MB per month, 2GB going for 25$ and 4GB with mobile hotspot connectivity for 45$. When it launches, AT&T’s G LTE service will be offered in just five markets: Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio, the carrier said in a statement. AT&T has offered 4G phones for months, but its previous handsets ran on the company’s HSPA+ network, which offers theoretical top speeds ofmegabytes per second for downloads andmegabytes per second for uploads.
LTE refers to “long term evolution” and is considered to be the most scalable of the G options for telecommunications companies. LTE networks, from both AT&T and Verizon, have promised to be as much as 0 times fast than G networks, with speeds of theoretical top speeds of 200 megabytes pers second for downloads and megabytes per second for uploads. Of course, just how fast and how reliable a cellular network varies by city and by carrier. T-Mobile currently uses a HSPA+ G network and Sprint uses a technology called WiMax for its G service, but both are also looking to eventually switch to LTE networks as well. Next up is the HTC Vivid (Holiday), which will be offered in both black and white for $250 and appears to match the specs leaked to us a couple months ago.
