AT&T Announces Samsung Focus S, Plus Three Windows Phone 7.5 Devices
AT&T has just announced that all of four of their exiting Windows Phone 7 devices will receive an upgrade to Windows Phone 7.5 (AKA Mango) this Fall. The update will be available for the HTC HD7S, HTC Surround, LG Quantum, and the Samsung Focus SGH-1917. We’re relieved to see that devices like the Samsung Focus that we previously reviewed, still have plenty of life left ahead of them. The Mango update brings much anticipated new features to Windows Phone such as multitasking and colorful Live Tiles.
AT&T has also announced that three new Windows Phones are on the way, and that includes the Samsung Focus S, Samsung Focus Flash, and the HTC Titan that we recently got a hands-on with at IFA 2011. At the moment, AT&T is the carrier with the biggest selection of Windows Phone 7 devices.
Samsung Focus S
The Samsung Focus™ S builds on the success of the award-winning and highest-selling Windows Phone in the U.S., the Samsung Focus™. Featuring a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4 GHz processor, 4G-capable speeds and a thin profile at 8.55 millimeters. It includes front facing 1.3-megapixel and a rear facing 8-megapixel cameras. The Samsung Focus S will find its way into a lot of pockets this fall.
Debuting as the largest screen in AT&T’s smartphone portfolio at 4.7 inches, HTC TITAN fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Watch video from AT&T U-Verse Mobile or play Xbox LIVE® games on the largest screen yet for a Windows Phone. Running a 1.5 GHz processor and an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, HTC TITAN will feed the senses.
Samsung Focus Flash
Designed to hit the market packed with value, Samsung Focus™ Flash’s 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen will both fit in pockets and be light on pocketbooks with the full power of Windows Phone 7.5 inside. As fast and lightweight as it is compact, it runs a 1.4 GHz processor and a 5-megapixel camera plus front facing camera.
