AT&T announces three new Samsung devices and the Son of phablet
AT&T announced on Friday that it will be offering three new Samsung 4G LTE devices and a highly awaited sequel.  The Samsung Galaxy Express is designed for first-time smartphone users. Still, it offers a 4.5 inch display, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor and a 5MP rear-facing camera. And to keep the lights on, the model has a 2000mAh battery. Let's hope smartphone newbies can handle all that power!

For those who put their phones through hell, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is waterproof for 30 minutes in up to three feet of water. That allows you to drop in the toilet, think about if for a few minutes, fish it out and still use it. The phone also is dustproof and shock resistant. And since it's perfect for construction workers, it's no surprise that the phone will support AT&T's new enhanced PTT service which starts in November. The Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro features a 4 inch WVGA screen and a 5MP rear-facing camera. Also joining the AT&T line up is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1). This tablet has a 10.1 inch screen with several Samsung apps pre-loaded such as Media Hub and Smart Remote. There is also a 7000mAh battery inside to power the tablet.

But the big news is the announcement that the sequel to the Samsung GALAXY Note has officially been introduced by the nation's second largest carrier. With its larger 5.5 inch screen, faster processor and new features like PopUp Video and enhancements to the S Pen, the Son of phablet outdoes the original model in many areas of performance including battery life. Android 4.1 is pre-installed on the model. The Samsung GALAXY Note II is expected to sell 20 million units in the next year, according to Samsung's J.K. Shin.

AT&T didn't release pricing or availability for the new devices, so we will leave it up to them to pass that news around when they are ready.
