It's a good day to be an AT&T customer. Hot on the heels of the HTC Lancaster, two more brand new smartphones have been scheduled to come out for the megacarrier's network. The Pantech Aladdin and LG Monaco will both be out for AT&T by 2010.

The Pantech Aladdin has a front-sliding QWERTY keyboard with a 2.2 inch screen, a dinky 1.3 megapixel camera, GPS, and support for Napster and eMusic, as well as other Windows DRM programs. The Aladdin is a simple, low-level smartphone for the budget-conscious customer. I'm not a big fan of most Pantech designs, but if the price is right the Aladdin sounds like a solid buy.

The LG Monaco is a much higher-end device. It's got a 3.2 inch WVGA touchscreen, a sliding QWERTY keyboard, a 5 megapixel camera, and a Pico projector accessory. The Monaco will run Windows Mobile 7, which means we'll be waiting until mid-to-late 2010 to see it. No word yet on whether or not the projector will come standard with the phone. Either way, the Monaco looks like a costly beast, but one well worth the price. Its specs make it a probable equal to the HTC Magic or iPhone 2009.

How good a buy it will end up being will depend on the price. That projector will be hard to beat, though, and the 5 megapixel camera means it will have one of the best cameras on the smartphone market.
