AT&T was perhaps the one carrier who came into CES this month and exceeded our expectations.  Announcing no less than six Android devices for the new year, we came away pleased with the mixed bag of offerings.  The only questions we really had at the time were “When can we get these and how much is it going to cost us?”  Thanks to new details passed to BGR, we can answer those burning questions.

According to Boy Genius Report we can look for the big, fat Samsung Galaxy Note to arrive on February 18 with a $299.99 price tag.  Additionally, we can now put two more Android devices on our radar, the Samsung Rugby Smart, and the AT&T Fusion.  The Rugby Smart will likely be a low-end HSPA+ model and carry a $99.99 sticker while the AT&T Fusion will be slightly more at $124.99 with a contract.  Like the Galaxy Note, these two will also debut February 18th.

AT&T is also said to be launching  a Sony “Crystal” tablet for $409.99 which should offer HSPA+ connectivity as opposed to the 4G LTE stuff that’s beginning to trickle out.  Finally we can also expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, the Samsung Exhilarate and Sony Xperia ion over the first quarter of the year however pricing and exact dates remain unknown.
