Messaging and mobile data could not possibly be hotter right now, and AT&T knows it. The company has just debuted four new messaging phones for their Spring lineup, perfect for those who just came back from Spring Break with a "lost, stolen, missing or otherwise broken" cellphone. We know there are quite a few of you in that camp too, so don't play coy.

In an effort to get mobile data out to more people, AT&T is bringing smartphone-like experiences to a wider range of powerful yet affordable devices designed for the mass-market. The new lineup of four Quick Messaging devices will be "among the first to offer a new suite of consumer data services that will significantly enhance messaging, video and photo sharing, and contacts management." The four newcomers are listed and detailed below, and all four are exceptionally affordable. Just watch out for any monthly data plans, though--oftentimes it is better to pony up for something like an iPhone up front in order to best take advantage of that $30/month data plan.

The new quick messaging phones lineup for spring 2010 includes:

  • Samsung Strive™— In addition to featuring the new AT&T services, the SamsungStrive will be available on March 21 in two color combinations,black/silver and purple/charcoal.

If the cellular providers keep upping included services, and lowering costs sooner or later we'll get to where I would love it to be. Free cellular phone service with compensatory advertisements, right lol.
