Priced on contract for 99 cents by AT&T, Samsung Focus Flash gets full-page treatment
AT&T has cut the price of the Samsung Focus Flash to 99 cents with a signed two-year pact. And to let everyone know all about the special deal, the carrier put a full-page ad in the LA Times. Why the carrier choose the Focus Flash to splash all over one of the highest circulating papers in the States instead of, say, the HTC Titan, might be a bit of a mystery. Then again, the carrier didn't cut the price of the 4.7 inch beast to the price of a McChicken sandwich.

AT&T obviously thinks that the Windows Phone OS is going to make a three horse race out of things. 2012 looks to be a big year for Microsoft's mobile OS with Nokia bringing the Lumia line to the U.S. with the Nokia 710 heading to T-Mobile and Verizon too, if rumors are correct. There is even talk of an LTE enabled model of the Nokia Lumia 800 for Big Red and AT&T.  Don't forget the Tango and Apollo updates scheduled for 2012. The latter is expected to let hardware manufacturers build more competitive handsets for the Windows Phone OS. If the Apollo update does for Windows Phone what Android 2.0 did for Android, who knows what the complexion of the cellular industry will look like next year at this time.
