Android finally comes to AT&T-five times

Android finally comes to AT&T-five times
AT&T has finally joined the list of carriers that is offering an Android handset. The cellular carrier is actually planning on selling 5 different Android models by the end of the first half of this year. Three of the five will be exclusive to AT&T and include a Motorola model with MOTOBLUR and a unique form factor which adds up to the Motorola Backflip/Motus. This handset is designed so that the keyboard faces out, even when the device is closed. Another exclusive model will be the Dell Mini 3 and the last one will be a device built by HTC. The last two phones could be the Nexus One and another Android device that is anyone's guess. Each of the top 4 carriers in the U.S. will now offer Android handsets to its customers. Ever since the nation's top carrier, Verizon, launched both the Motorola DROID and the HTC DROID Eris back in November, Google's open source OS has picked up momentum on the back of some well-reviewed hardware and the media attention given to the Nexus One.
