AT&T announced that it will launch two Windows Phone handsets
on November 6th. For $199.99 with a signed 2-year pact, the Samsung Focus S
is the higher-end model of the pair. It will be equipped with a 4.3 inch Super AMOLED plus display, with a 1.4GHz Second -generation Snapdragon processor under the hood. An 8MP camera on back is complemented with a 1.3MP front-facing shooter for self-portraits and video chats. The device is only 8.55mm at its thinnest point.
The less expensive Samsung Focus Flash
has a 3.7 inch Super AMOLED display, but is driven by the same 1.4GHz S2 Snapdragon processor used in the Focus S. A 5MP camera is on back. Both models are follow-up devices to the Samsung Focus
which, as AT&T pointed out, is the highest selling Windows Phone in the States. Will this duo keep up the tradition of the original Samsung Focus, said to have one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any smartphone? We should know shortly.
