AT&T announced today a new Windows Phone with the Samsung Focus 2 4G LTE. Beginning May 20, customers can purchase the Focus 2, available in a glossy pure white, from AT&T for only $49.99 with a two-year contract.
Like AT&T’s other new 4G LTE Windows Phones, the Samsung Focus 2 features the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system which makes it easier to do everyday tasks faster. Only Windows Phone has Live Tiles, providing real time updates on your Start Screen including calendar appointments, emails or social media feeds. With Bing Search built-in, you’ll never be lost, as finding directions or a highly rated restaurant nearby is quick and easy. Microsoft Office Mobile and SkyDrive® also allow you to create, save and access documents anywhere from the cloud to help maintain productivity while on-the-go.
The Samsung Focus 2 comes with a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and 5-megapixel camera that makes taking pictures or shooting video in HD 720p a breeze. The front-facing VGA camera provides the ability for video chat. Hands-free messaging is available through speech-to-text and text-to-speech features that make it easier to stay in touch safely while out and about.
The new Windows Phones seem to try to get customers with low prices. Will this work?
