Samsung Focus 2 now available, brings $49.99 LTE to AT&T
Starting on Sunday, AT&T is offering a Windows Phone flavored LTE enabled smartphone for less than $50 with a signed 2-year pact. Ok, so it's 1 cent less than $50, but that still counts. The $49.99 Samsung Focus 2 brings affordable LTE connectivity to the customers of the second largest mobile carrier in the nation. The 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display has a pixel density of 233ppi. Under the hood is a single-core 1.4GHz processor. On back is a 5MP camera with AF and LED flash. The camera captures video in 720p while a front-facing VGA camera snaps self-portraits. The phone comes with 8GB of native storage Windows Phone 7.5 is installed.

The Samsung Focus 2 is available in white and you can check out our hands-on video to see the device in action. And just in case you're wondering, the major difference between the OG Samsung Focus and the sequel is the faster processor and that fantastic white finish on the sequel.

Am I missing something? Why would anyone choose this over the Lumia other than not caring for Nokia? The Lumia is even the same price with a MUCH better camera...

I guess brand loyalty to Samsung? Or maybe they don't want a 4.3" screen like the Lumia. But I do agree with you. If a consumer shops around, they can find a Lumia at the same price, making it a better value for its added features and the Lumia is also available in white if you HAVE to have it. EDIT: Given the Focus 2's lower price point entering the market, it may become free at national retailers earlier than the Lumia. Then it would be pretty enticing. I remember Target doing this the Pantech Burst with good success.

Can you still not send videos through mms or did the update solve this? I couldn't believe Windows couldn't do this.
