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.
