New Info on 9 Upcoming AT&T Phones

AT&T user looking for a new phone? Well, we got more info on 9 (!) upcoming AT&T phones, and boy do they look AMAZING. If you are an AT&T user, there is something here that is probably for you.

Well start with the simplest phones, and move up to the more high featured ones.

Samsung a637

A small phone, it looks pretty nice and also has some decent features.

  • Sleek, stylish design– very nice and small, this phone should fit very well in any pocket.
  • AT&T 3G
  • AT&T Navigator– aka GPS
  • Mp3 and Video Player
  • AT&T Video Share– AT&T’s one way video chat with other Video Share phones when both are in a 3G area.

This phone is available now for $50 from AT&T’s website after a 2 year contract and a $50 mail in rebate.

Samsung Propel

The official features of this phone are still a mystery — its not yet official — but the features we know include:

  • Small Design– This should fit in any into any pocket as well, but also features what appears to be a pretty big screen.
  • Slide-out QWERTY (computer-like) keyboard— something great for heavy texters
  • AT&T 3G
  • AT&T Navigator
  • 3 Different colors—  red, blue and green.

This phone should cost $80 on a 2 year contract when it launches hopefully soon for AT&T.

Samsung Propel

AT&T Quickfire

This phone is something I personally find really cool. Looking like the sidekick, its rumored to have a slide up screen that reveals a full keyboard (great for texters). Like the Propel’s, the features are strongly rumored but we do know:

  • Small Design– Like the other two phones, this should also fit smooth in any pocket.
  • AT&T Navigator
  • AT&T 3G
  • 1.3 Megaixel camera with Video Capture
  • Mp3 and Video player
  • Micro-SD card slot– not sure how high this goes
  • AT&T Mobile TV
  • Available in multiple colors–  silver, orange and green.

This is expected to come later this month for $99.99 with a 2 year contract.

AT&T Quickfire

Pantech Matrix

This phone is a really cool dual slide phone- like the older Pantech Duo. Slide it to the side and you get a QWERTY keyboard like the Quickfire and Propel mentioned above, slide it down, a regular phone keypad. Other features include:

  • AT&T 3G
  • AT&T Navigator
  • Mp3 and Video Player
  • AT&T Video Share
  • Micro-SD card slot
  • Three colors to choose from– Blue, Red or Green.

This phone should be available for $79.99 on a 2 year contract when it launches hopefully later this month as well.

Samsung a867/ Eternity

This is the rumored Samsung Omnia AT&T look-a-like. This all-touchscreen phone looks really nice with that little AT&T logo up top, and is really the most feature packed device on this list.

  • Samsung OS– Fortunately or unfortunately (depending on how you look at it 😉 ), there is no Windows Mobile on this phone unlike the Omnia which uses Windows Mobile.
  • Thin design– Will fit into any pocket.
  • 3.2 inch touchscreen– This is a smaller screen than the iPhone, but about the same size as the new Blackberry Storm for Verizon.
  • AT&T TV– This phone really is more like the LG Vu, now than any other phone. Unlike the LG Vu though, this phone doesn’t need you to have an antenna to watch TV as everything is built in!
  • AT&T Navigator
  • 3 megapixel camera
  • Mp3 and Video player
  • Micro-SD card slot– Ability to add up to 16 GB of memory to this phone
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack– Ability for you to use regular headphones with this phone.
  • A new “light pipe”– This “light pipe” has little lights on the bottom of the phone that glow when you get new emails, text messages etc.

The phone should be out be next month for $150 on a 2 year contract.

Samsung Eternity

Sony Ericsson W760a

This is a regular sliding phone that is very sleek and stylish. Loaded with features like:

  • AT&T 3G
  • Walkman 3.0 with Shake Control– This lets you “shake” the phone to change or shuffle songs like what is on the new Nano.
  • 3.2 Megapixel Camera
  • AT&T Navigator
  • Tilt Control Gaming– We’re not sure exactly what this is, but our best guess is that it is like the iPhone and iPod Touch games where you can tilt and shake the phone to play games.
  • Mp3 and Video Player
  • FM Radio built-in
  • AT&T Video Share

This phone looks really nice, cost $129.99 on a 2 year contract, and is available now at any AT&T store (online ordering should be available soon as well).

  • High resolution touchscreen
  • 3 megapixel camera
  • Windows Mobile 6.1
  • GPS
  • AT&T 3G
  • WiFi

A regular Blackberry — not a touchscreen like the Storm — its release was scheduled for over the summer, but was delayed by buggy software. Features will be including:

  • AT&T 3G
  • WiFi
  • Mp3 and Video Player
  • Blackberry Media Sync– For syncing your non-bought iTunes (or songs without iTunes copy protection, aka DRM)  music to your Blackberry! And yes, this uses your iTunes library.

HTC Fuze

A successor to the AT&T Tilt, features on this phone are:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 with Touch Flo 3D– This is amazing (Touch Flo 3D), and lets you view text, mail, pix, contacts, play music and more with a sleek menu interface. Add the fact that you got Windows Mobile, means you can add a whole bunch of games and apps already created- without the need for an App Store.
  • AT&T 3G
  • A full web browser– For viewing the “real” internet
  • GPS
  • High Resolution Touchscreen
  • Slide-out QWERTY keyboard
  • WiFi

HTC Touch Pro (aka AT&T Fuze)- Touch Flo 3D to left, keyboard open to right

What does all of this mean to you? If your looking for a new phone for AT&T at a good price, then you got some really nice choices just from the phones here. Big texters are also in luck with phones like the Propel, Matrix and Quickfire. Throw in some higher end phones like the HTC Fuze, Samsung Eternity, and Blackberry Bold and if your looking for a high end phone your good as well. Oh, and AT&T does still have already launched phones like a certain iPhone 3G (we think this is popular with some people 😉 ), and the LG Vu.

What you think- any of these phones looking good to being your next phone, if so which phone strikes your interest? Would you rather go for an iPhone 3G or LG Vu instead of one of these phones, or are you willing to wait for a phone like the Bold or HTC Fuze? Let us know your thoughts and plans in the comments.

  1. I need a new phone, now. AT&T seems to be the only one taking their good old time
    getting some new cell phones out there!! I have been waiting for some of the HTC Touch
    phones such as the Fuze, or HTC Touch 3G, or Nokia N96. I don’t want to wait much longer.
    I need a new cell phone now, mine is not working good anymore/
    Please let me know when they are coming to to AT&T.

  2. I AM DEFFENTLY WAITING FOR THE HTC FUZE! THAT IS ONE OF THE COOLEST PHONES. IF ATT GETS IT THEN THEY WILL MAKE A FORTUNE!!!!!!!!! I KNOW I WILL BUY IT RIGHT WHEN IT COMES OUT!!!!

  3. Hello the HTC Fuze looks like a great phone, but will at&t get this phone? AT&T will lose customers soon if they don’t start getting phones like the other companys!!!!

  4. the fuze comes out on nov. 11th wwwwwwwwwwwwwoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhoooooooooooooo
    also my phone broke and my back up broke and the other back up so i am using my cuz’s old tmbile razr v3

  5. is the Quickfire same size as the walkman.?

  6. ALll of those phones att phones, they have each of those phone right now and they are priced well too, they have very good rating on all of them, they are getting alot better with the quality of the phones , that is why its worth the wait for them to get the phones, BTW, with e blackberry bold, its better than the storm, did you know you have to doubl click everything with the storm and it decreases the battery and the delay in internet access.

  7. omg da iPhone is so awsome i mean itz amazing its many things put into 1 thing*_*

  8. holy **** the at&t quickfire is awsome!!! it is mad cool!!!!! i want it so bad all i have to do is to make the high honner role one more time!!

  9. i want the quickfire sooooooooooooooo BAD it is the coolest phone i have ever seen and it’s really inexpensive.

  10. Hey $$KB-Dogg$$ and ch!!!ck76–

    Just wanted to let you know that while the Quickfire looked like an awesome phone, it really wasn’t and was actually pulled off AT&T shelves because it would actually burst into flames while charging (making good use of the name “Quickfire”).

    I recommend you check out the Samsung Impression instead as it keeps the same awesome touchscreen slide out keyboard design while updating it with features like a better touchscreen (when I saw the Quickfire, it’s touchscreen was pathetic and hard to use, unlike the Impression’s which is just easy to use and awesome), better keyboard and design, and is a phone that won’t randomly burst into flames and kill you. You can find out more on it and other phones like it such as the LG Neon and Xenon, in our post here.

    Also, best of luck $$KB-Dogg$$ with making the honor roll.

    Ttyl,

    –Eli

  11. i eather wanna quick fire or a LG Vu. bothh ahmazing fonesss!

  12. I think at&t needs to make more phones that FLIP open into a full keyboard instead of slides. Some examples are:the voyager and then envy 1,2,3,and touch.

    Thanks

  13. i dont recommend the at&t impression to anyone. i know it wasnt displayed on this page but yeah.the touch screen is great and all but its extremly sensitive to moisture.thats how mine got ruined. and its not very strong.

  14. i am soooooo getting the quickfire it looks AMAZING !!!!!!!!!!! i love ittttttt

  15. omg the fuze looks bomb i wan it bADD AWESOMEE!!!

  16. I think that at&t needs way more keyboard phones. but i don’t really like touch screen and i want a keyboard. the only issue is that they dont really have that many without being touchscreen. other than the blackberry curve. im not going to pay like 20 extra dollars a month for somthing that im not going to use.

  17. QUICKFIRE ROCKS!

    If anyone knows a phone like the quickfire (that wont burst into flames while charging!) 😛 could you please point it out to me? Thanks! 🙂

  18. QUICKFIRE ROCKS!

    Also, i’m looking for a good flip phone, since I think i’ll be texting and tweeting more than calling! 😉
