AT&T Beefs Up 4G LTE Portfolio with Quartet of Samsung Galaxy Devices

The 4G LTE options on AT&T’s network just got a little deeper and more diverse with the addition of four new Samsung Galaxy devices, and each of the four offer something for specific market segments.

The Galaxy Express is a solid entry-level smartphone with a 4.5-inch AMOLED display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.0, and 5MP camera, while the Galaxy Rugby Pro offers a step up for many business users, featuring a rugged waterproof, dust proof, and shock resistant chassis as well as a 4-inch AMOLED display, with a 5MP back camera capable of 702p HD. It also offers device encryption, EAS corporate email support, and handy push-to-talk capabilities.

On the higher end, AT&T and Samsung are offering the Galaxy Note II; it has a quad core 1.6GHz Exynos chip, huge 5.5-inch display, Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), Samsung’s spate of built-in apps, and of course, the S Pen.

There’s also a tablet in the mix--the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1--which boasts a large display; Samsung’s Media Hub, Smart Remote, and AllShare Play; business features such as on-device encryption and VPN; and a long-lasting 7000 mAh battery.

AT&T says that all four devices will land “in the coming months”.

As a simple consumer, I must ask: Are those the new Apple iPhones/iPad? They have rounded corners, and are rectangles... so patents dictate that they're either an Apple product, or my dining room table, right?

Wait... that bottom one is definitely my dining room table. nm.

I like the Rugby. We used to have tuff phones at work, then we upgraded to smart phones, which was less then Ideal. If I can get a tuff, smart phone then I have the best of both worlds. :-)
