AT&T Confirms Android Plans – 5 Handsets in First Half of 2010

AT&T has finally added their name to the list of carriers officially on board with Android.  Coming not a moment too soon, the nation’s 4th largest carrier announced today that five Android-based handsets are coming in the first half of 2010.  Speaking at the 4th annual AT&T Developer Summit in Las Vegas, executives promised phones from HTC, Motorola, and Dell.

The Motorola phone pictured below is all but confirmed as the Backflip, which has been tossed through the rumor mill of late.  The Dell handset will be a variation of the Mini 3 that’s been released in other countries.  And as for the HTC device… the only thing we know at this point is that it will be an “AT&T exclusive”.

If you are interested in keeping up to date, head to AT&T’s dedicated Android page and add your email address.

Any AT&T subscribers out there getting excited over the news?  Anyone gonna hold off for a few more months to switch to “the nation’s fastest 3G network“?

    In what sense is AT&T the 4th largest carrier? As far as I know they are the 2nd largest in the US unless you mean something other than subscribers?

    4th largest? They're second; barely smaller than Verizon. They used to be number 1 until Verizon recently bought Alltel. AT&T and Verizon are by far the two largest, T-Mobile and Sprint aren't even on the same level as Verizon and AT&T in terms of subscribers in the US.

    Verizon – 89 Million subscribers
    AT&T – 81.6 million subscribers

    Sprint – 48 million customer

    T-Mobile – 33.4 million customers

      WTFCares? Whether they are #4 or #2, they SUCK at CS and TS and from what I read here, also at BS.

      T-Mobile is #1 in CS, and THAT is what really matters. Do you want a company that cares about YOU, the customer, or just them selves, the Corporate MEGOPOLY that spends 100's of millions on stupid ads bragging how BIG they are. If ATT were a human being, they would be diagnosed with Narcissistic personality disorder (NPD) .
