ATT roadmap carries Sony slate and solidifies plan
More details from AT&T's escaped roadmap have shown in two leaks Wednesday afternoon. The new BGR tips point to a new, $410 Sony tablet known as the Crystal. While it could be something new, it's most likely to be the long-delayed Tablet P (S2), a dual-screened Android tablet with HSPA+ 3G.
The rest of the roadmap would see AT&T bring several announced and unknown devices to shops. February 18 would see three Android devices arrive, headlined by the Samsung Galaxy Note at $300 on a contract. Samsung would also have the Rugby Smart, an upgraded Android version of its entry-level phone, while a carrier-branded AT&T Fusion would also appear. The two more modest devices would respectively cost $100 and $125 on contract.
March 18 wouldn't just be reserved for the Nokia Lumia 900 if the roadmap is correct. The HTC Titan II would also arrive that day for a considerably more expensive $200 on contract. Other phones unveiled during CES like the Samsung Exhilarate, Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket HD, and Sony Xperia ion would also show up before the end of March, but didn't have exact ship dates.
AT&T is planning one of the most comprehensive revamps ever for its smartphone line for early 2012 and is hoping to once again show that it's not completely dependent on the iPhone. Apple still makes up the majority of its smartphone sales and has managed to keep Android and Windows Phone as minorities.
