Two Samsung Devices Among AT&T's 'Mango' Device Lineup

A new version of the HTC Titan and two phones from Samsung were reveled today by AT&T as its first wave ow Windows Phone 7 "Mango" smartphones.

The three 4G phones will hit the AT&T network in the fourth quarter, the carrier said.

"The HTC Titan was unveiled to the world last week as a global phone and we are excited to share that an exclusive version of this device will make its way to the U.S. at AT&T," Brian Seitz wrote on Monday on Microsoft's official Windows Phone Blog. The distinguishing feature of the Titan is its 4.7-inch display, which is gigantic by smartphone standards.

New to the AT&T announcement were two devices from Samsung, the Samsung Focus S and the Samsung Focus Flash.

"The Samsung Focus S builds on the success of the award-winning and highest-selling Windows Phone in the U.S., the Samsung Focus. [It features] a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 1.4 GHz processor, 4G-capable speeds and a thin profile at 8.55 millimeters. It includes front facing 1.3-megapixel and a rear facing 8-megapixel cameras," AT&T said in a news release.

The other Samsung, the Focus Flash, is designed as a value phone. It will have a 3.7-inch Super AMOLED screen and the higher-resolution rear-facing version of its two cameras will be only 5 megapixels.

Calling itself the "clear leader in Windows Phones" based on sales, AT&T also vowed that it would be "among the first to offer the Windows Phone Mango update" for its Windows Phone 7 devices. That lineup of devices includes the HTC HD7S, HTC Surround, LG Quantum and Samsung Focus.
