HTC Vivid and Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket are first AT&T LTE Phones

AT&T announced today their first LTE phones.

AT&T announced the first two smartphones for their new LTE network available on November 6. The first AT&T LTE phones are the HTC Vivid and the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket. The AT&T LTE network will be available in 9 markets by November 6 including Atlanta, Chicago and Houston.

HTC Vivid LTE Smarpthone
The HTC Vivid is powered by a dual core 1.2GHz processor and a 4.5-inch qHD display. HTC Vivid features the acclaimed HTC Sense user experience, which includes a customizable active lockscreen that transforms the display into a real-time window to your most important information and content, such as social updates, photos, weather or stock updates that are viewed by simply waking up the display. Sharper graphics, vibrant animations and new widgets make HTC Sense better than ever and, by continuing to focus on the details, HTC provides a more cinematic and immersive multimedia experience with stunning imagery and audible weather effects.

  • 4.5-inch qHD display (540x960 pixels)
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • Enhanced 8-megapixel camera with f2.2 28mm wide angle lens for low light photos
  • 1080p HD video recording at 60 frames per second, slow motion playback and on-device trimmer to optimize social media uploads and memory space
  • 16GB of on-board memory, microSD expandable to an additional 32 GB

The HTC Vivid will arrive in AT&T company-owned retail stores and online Nov. 6 for $199.99 with a two-year commitment. 

Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
The Galaxy S2 Skyrocket LTE Phone is powered by a 1.5GHz dual core processor and AT&T 4G LTE speeds make the Galaxy S II Skyrocket faster for Web browsing and all your favorite apps. A SuperAMOLED Plus display spanning 4.5-inches is the brightest, most colorful screen on the market.

  • 4.5-inch SuperAMOLED Plus display(800x480 pixels)
  • Android Gingerbread (2.3.5)
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED flash, with 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 1080p HD video recording
  • 16GB of on-board memory, microSD expandable to an additional 32 GB

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket will arrive in AT&T company-owned retail stores and online Nov. 6 for $249.99 with a two-year commitment. 

AT&T LTE Data Plans
Customers can choose from tiered data plans starting as low as $15 per month. Existing smartphone customers do not have to make changes to their data plan. All plans include access to AT&T’s national Wi-Fi network of more than 29,000 hotspots.

  • DataPlus provides 200 megabytes (MB) of data for just $15 per month. An additional 200 MB of data usage is $15.
  • DataPro provides 2 gigabytes (GB) of data for $25 per month. An additional 1 GB of data is $10. Customers who want to use their device as a mobile hotspot can sign up for DataPro 4GB for $45 a month, which lets you tether or share your data connection across multiple devices.
AT&T has still ways to go to bring LTE coverage to as many markets as Verizon. But if you happen to live in an AT&T LTE coverage area the Galaxy S2 Skyrocket looks like a winner.
