AT&T Planning to Launch Three Windows Phone Mango Based 4G Phones

Telecom giant AT&T is reportedly planning to launch three brand new 4G handsets from HTC and Samsung based on Windows Phone Mango.

Amongst these new offerings from the second largest wireless provider in the US are Focus Flash and Focus S from Samsung and the Titan from HTC. All the handsets are likely to hit the market sometimes during the fourth quarter in the running year.

All the three phones will be powered by the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango software. In addition to these offerings, the company is reportedly planning to upgrade all the existing Windows Phone 7 products to the Mango platform.

AT&T currently offers 4G services by exploiting the High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) technology, and it is currently planning to dish out the LTE (Long Term Evolution) sometimes towards the end of 2011.

During the initial phase, the LTE technology will be unveiled in a total of 5 cities including Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, San Antonio and Houston.

AT&T’s 2011 blueprint shows a total of 20 4G devices which include a wide range of smartphones, tablets, mobile hotspots, as well as modems. In addition to that, the company is also aiming towards building a large Android portfolio consisting of over 12 brand new devices which are likely to hit the market pretty soon.
