In addition to the flagship Samsung Omnia 7 Windows Phone 7 smartphone, AT&T will be offering up the HTC Surround, and LG Quantum. CEO Ralph de la Vega calls them “game changers.” That’s exciting and all with the Windows Phone 7 floodgates now open, but we’ll just have to wait and see them first hand before we start “changing” anything.more →
Windows Phone 7 is a pretty big deal for the boys and girls in Redmond, Washington. Windows Mobile hasn’t exactly been the most popular of mobile platforms, so WP7 could represent quite the revival for Microsoft. When is that going to happen? For AT&T folks, one of the biggest dates to circle is November 8th.more →
The Android family at AT&T just welcomed three new members. Announced at CTIA, the Motorola Bravo, Flipout and Flipside are all making their way over to big blue to sit on the same shelf alongside the Apple iPhone 4. If you’re looking for some more Android action, AT&T wants to have you covered.more →
Motorola’s Flipside, an Android 2.1 smartphone skinned with MOTOBLUR is heading to AT&T. Confusingly due to Motorola’s naming conventions on mobile phones, the Flipside does not flip at all like we would expect it to. The Backflip flips its keyboard back and forth, while the Flipside offers a more traditional slideout keyboard.more →

Up until now, if you were looking at Android phones, but in on an AT&T contract your choices were pretty slim. You could go for the Motorola Backflip, or a reincarnation of Dell’s Mini 3, the Dell Aero. Today the Aria enters the Android line expanding AT&T’s offerings with another mid-level phone. The soon-to-be iPhone 4 carrier has been pretty hesitant to pick up any high-end Android smartphones that could compete with the Apple’s devices.more →
I’m just as tired as you are about hearing that Verizon or Sprint is going to get the iPhone 4. The rumor has been going on for quite some time. Even with the Wall Street Journal reporting on it, there hasn’t been a whole lot to back that up, until now. What AT&T is calling “another very exciting day for customers,” could be a ploy to lock you in to another contract. With the iPhone 4 release, new plans from the exclusive carrier were announced offering current iPhone owners the option to upgrade early; the clincher, you are with them for another 2 years.more →
Ever since the original Apple iPhone launched way back in 2007, thousands of customers have complained about how poor the network performance was with the iPhone. AT&T’s exclusivity over Americans gave them little choice but to put up with it or get another phone.
Could the shackles be broken? If the rumors of a CDMA-equipped iPhone destined for Verizon Wireless, why would Apple and AT&T be continuing the a relationship by working closely with Apple to rectify the network issues.more →
It looks like AT&T is expanding their lineup again. Already with the prized and coveted iPhone, the new Palm phones from earlier today, and joining the family is a new Android phone called the Dell Aero. Looks familiar doesn’t it? That’s because it’s basically the same handset as the Dell Mini 3 that has been on sale in China for a little while now and we suspected back in January headed this way. The critical difference – aside from the clear language alterations – is that the phone is branded as the Dell Aero, and no, you won’t be seeing this on 7-11 shelves.more →
AT&T plans to offer the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus to their network of 80 million customers. This will expand AT&T’s offering of available smartphones to include those of the Palm webOS type, the only to hit their network.
The Palm Pre Plus has a slider keyboard and 16GB of storage. It will sell for $149.99 with a two-year plan after a $100 mail-in rebate. Palm’s Pixi Plus is their slimmest phone and it adds Wi-Fi, a full QWERTY keyboard and two color choices of black or blue (exclusive to AT&T) on for $49.99 with a two-year plan.more →
It’s here Canada. Google’s Nexus One phone just got released for the Canadian market and US customers on AT&T. Previous Nexus One phones would only utilize 2G and EDGE network connectivity, not the best for your Android experience, but good enough. Now Google has announced a compatible 3G version, so T-Mobile USA is no longer the only one with a Nexus offering and Canadian Rogers Wireless customers can get on board.
The phone can be purchased from Google’s phone store for $529 USD, free shipping in the USA.more →
Everyone seems to be jumping on the Google Android bandwagon these days, but how can they not? AT&T wants in on the action so they decided on a release date of March 7th for the Motorola Backflip. That’s less than a month away.more →
AT&T announced Thursday that the SlingPlayer Mobile application will be able to stream video over their 3G network, allowing users to watch video recorded at home anywhere their iPhone’s go.more →
Motorola has already confirmed its commitment to the Google Android platform with the highly successful Motorola Droid available through Verizon, and rumored to be released by Telus either tomorrow or the 2nd week of February as the Motorola Milestone. Well, it seems an even more interesting Android phone is coming to AT&T from Moto too.more →
The two have always been at battle, but with AT&T’s response so closely timed with Verizon’s, its a complete price war and we don’t know when it will stop, or what other carriers plan to join in. Undercutting each other to maintain a larger market share, both companies unlimited voice plan package prices were cut, that goes for the iPhone too.more →
