AT&T adds three more devices to Android stable


We already told you about the Atrix 2 and Captivate Glide, but AT&T isn't done unveiling fresh Android flavors just yet. The carrier just announced that it will be releasing three additional handsets from Samsung, Pantech and ZTE, with the latter being served to the prepaid GoPhone market. You read that right: Ma Bell just let loose five new products, bringing the total number of Android smartphones that will have seen release in 2011 to 19. If you'll recall, the carrier committed to introducing 12 such devices back in January, a goal which it has already exceeded by a fair margin. 

Now come the hardware details you crave. First on the agenda is the Samsung DoubleTime. Wielding dual 3.2-inch touchscreens at 320 x 480 and 480 x 320 (HVGA) resolutions, this flip-style phone offers a QWERTY keyboard alongside a 3.2-megapixel camera. A 600MHz Qualcomm chipset powers those internals, though the device is rather unfortunately relegated to Android 2.2 (Froyo) out of the box. If Gingerbread is more your style, AT&T is happy to point you toward the Pantech Pocket, with a 4-inch SVGA display, 5-megapixel shooter with HD video recording and expandable microSD storage up to 32GB. AT&T also touts the device as 4G capable, but doesn't define precisely what that means in this context.

As alluded to earlier, GoPhone customers aren't being left in the dark either. The AT&T-branded, ZTE-manufactured Avail is centered around a 3.5-inch display, runs Android 2.3 and utilizes a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus. The Avail includes Wi-Fi functionality and packs in a 2GB microSD card for the prepaid faithful. All three devices are due at your local AT&T shop before year's end.
