AT&T today announced its Spring season phone lineup consisting of smartphones and messaging phones. The phones unveiled were Nokia E71x, Samsung Propel Pro, Impression, Magnet, LG Neon and Xenon.
Nokia E71x is the same E71 which is already being sold unlocked in most markets. The E71x will come in black steel finish, operates on Symbian S60 and features Wi-Fi, GPS and bunch of AT&T customized services. It will retail in the “following weeks” for $150.
Next up is Samsung Propel Pro that takes over the previous Propel. The sliding QWERTY smartphone runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and has Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and 3 megapixel camera. This will sell from April 14 for $200.
Samsung Impression has a horizontal slider form factor with the QWERTY keyboard beneath it. The phone features a 3.2-inch AMOLED touchscreen which makes it the first commercially available phone in US to sport an AMOLED screen. Apart from this, it has a 3MP camera, Bluetooth with A2DP, GPS, AT&T services, microSD expansion etc. It will retail from April 7 for $200.
Magnet on the other hand, is the cheapest Samsung offering. With its jazzy orange and black color and the candybar QWERTY style, AT&T considers this will be a hit amongst youths. Not many details are revealed but it does have a WAP browser and an integrated camera (2MP, I assume).
Xenon is an affordable phone from LG bringing 3G surfing, 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, music player, microSD slot and a 2.8-inch screen with haptic feedback. The phone will go for $150.
Lastly is the Neon (similar to KS360) is a low-cost touchscreen device. It has a full sliding QWERTY pad, 2 megapixel camera and bunch of AT&T services.
All the phones are tied to AT&T with a 2 year contract. For phones including E71x, Propel Pro, Impression and Xenon, users will receive an additional $50 promotion card after a mail-in rebate.
