AT&T Launches 3 Windows Phone 7 Devices: HTC Surround, Samsung Focus, and LG Quantum

AT&T on Monday announced three smart phones from three manufacturers paired with the new Windows Phone 7 OS. On stage at the Windows Phone 7 launch, AT&T’s mobile chief Ralph de la Vega gave details on the HTC Surround, Samsung Focus, and LG Quantum. All of the devices fall have their own unique traits, but all are defined by the new Microsoft smart phone OS.

The HTC Surround is a touch-screen slab smart phone with a music and media focus. What separates the phone from its peers is the  hidden, slide-out Yamaha speakers, where most phones would have a slide-out keyboard. The phone carriers a 3.8-inch WGVA screen, a 1-GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording. The Surround will cost $199.99 with a 2-year contract.

The Samsung Focus has a 4-inch super-AMOLED screen and should be the only WP7 device with that kind of display at launch. It’s also one of the slimmest and lightest WP7 devices, measuring just 3.87 ounces.

The LG Quantum is a touch-screen slab with 5-megapixel camera and a horizontal QWERTY keyboard. It will be on sale at AT&T stores and online on November 8th. AT&T’s de la Vega  boasted that this keyboard is one of the best AT&T has seen.

Stay tuned for hands-on impressions.
