Further AT&T Roadmap Details: HTC Titan II, Samsung Galaxy Note
The guys over at BGR have gotten their hands on a supposed Q1 2012 AT&T roadmap, and started things off by revealing what secrets it contained regarding the Nokia Lumia 900. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though, and now the site has expanded on its coverage of the leak, featuring upcoming Android phones, tablets, and Windows Phone handsets.
Let’s start with the HTC Titan II, which will join the Lumia 900 as one of the first Windows Phone LTE models. According to this document, the Titan II will be showing up at the carrier hand-in-hand with the 900, both arriving on March 18. The phone, with its big 4.7-inch display, will sell for about $200 on-contract.
In Android phone territory, the LTE-enabled version of Samsung’s Galaxy Note is scheduled to show up on February 18 for a pricey $300. If you’re looking to keep costs down, there’s another Samsung on the roadmap, called the Rugby Smart, that will sell for just $100. Like the Galaxy Note, the Rugby Smart is supposed to arrive on February 18. This leak claims they’ll both be joined that day by AT&T’s carrier-branded Fusion, selling for about $125. That sounds pretty darn odd, considering AT&T is already selling the Huawei-made Fusion as a pre-paid GoPhone, and you can currently find it much cheaper than $125. We’re not sure what to make of this, except that it possibly means this roadmap is out-of-date.
The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, Samsung Exhilarate, and the Sony Xperia Ion are all on-track for releases sometime in Q1, but this document doesn’t specify just when, nor provide pricing details.
Finally, in tablet news, this roadmap foretells the release of the Sony Crystal. Details on the device are sparse, save for the claim that it will not support AT&T LTE. Look for it to sell at around $410.
