Leaked AT&T document reaffirms commitment to Android and 4G in 2011Alex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Back at the beginning of January, AT&T said that it would be bringing 12 Android phones and 20 4G devices this year, and today a leaked document has reaffirmed its plans. As you can see in the image above, the bottom two bullet points AT&T will be offering two exclusive 4G devices in the first quarter alone, with 18 more coming later this year. There's also going to be 12 Android phones joining Ma Bell's lineup, although obviously some of those Android and 4G devices will overlap. For example, the Inspire and Atrix are both Androids and are both 4G. Speaking of the Inspire and Atrix, it's now being rumored that the two handsets could arrive as soon as February 14th.
Considering that AT&T's Android offerings up to now have been meager at best, the news that they'll be getting 12 handsets in 2011 is pretty exciting for those customers that have held off jumping to another carrier. When you know that included in that number are devices like the Atrix and Infuse, I'd say that the wait will have been worth it.
