AT&T has finally stepped up and announced two LTE smartphones for its network. The first is the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket. It's an Android 2.3.5 device, with a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4.5-inch Super AMOLED Plus display at 800 x 480 pixels, 8-megapixel rear camera with a dual-LED flash, capable of full HD 1080p video, a 2-megapixel camera on the front, and 16GB of on-board storage with a microSD slot. It's set to be released on November 6th for $249.99 on a two-year contract.

The second is the HTC Vivid, another Android smartphone. It's coming in both black and white and includes a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2HGz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, an "enhanced" 8-megapixel camera that can record 1080p HD video at 60 frames per second, and 16GB on on-board storage with a microSD slot for more. It will run Android 2.3.4 with HTC Sense. It will also be available on November 6th, priced at $199.99 on a two-year contract.

AT&T won't be changing its data plans for customers who step up to these LTE smartphones, so the standard Data Plus and Data Pro plans will apply to both 3G and 4G data.
