New Sony Tablet called Crystal in AT&T Q1 2012 Roadmap

The device roadmap of US mobile phone operator AT&T for the first quarter of 2012 has apparently been leaked to mobile website BGR - with one surprise.

Sony may well launch a new tablet called the Crystal for $409.99 with HSPA+ rather than 4G LTE connectivity. No details as to whether it is a follow-up to either the Sony Tablet P or Tablet S. Crystal is likely to be the codename, rather than the final product name.

Other details brought by the roadmap, include the fact that the Nokia Lumia 900 and the jaw-dropping HTC Titan II wil be available as 4G contenders. HTC's new Windows Phone behemoth will cost $199.99 on a two year contract from the 18th of March.

Three other smartphones will also go on sale, including the Sony Xperia Ion, the Samsung Exhilarate and the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD - almost certainly an improved version of the Samsung Galaxy S II, with a faster chipset and a HD ready (1280x720 pixels) display.

Pricing and availability are still unknown; expect some of these products to be showcased at the forthcoming Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona towards the end of February.
