Android phones at CTIA Fall 2011


CTIA 2011 has brought a lot of new phones into the spotlight, and it is no surprise that a lot of them are Android.

We have already discussed the Stratosphere which will be available from Verizon.

One of the most unique is the Doubleplay, that you can see in the illustration here. As you can see, it has a secondary screen in the middle of the split QWERTY keyboard. It will be running Gingerbread with a 5 Megapixel camera in the rear and unknown resolution of the front. This one will be available from T-Mobile.

AT&T announced a fall line-up of Android phones.

There is the Samsung Captivate Glide, a 4-inch Super AMOLED slide-out QWERTY keyboard. It also has 1 GB of RAM as well as a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor. Other features include a HSPA+ radio, 1.3 front facing camera, and an 8 Megapixel rear camera.

Another AT&T phone is the Motorola Atrix 2, and it has a 4.3 inch screen. It runs Gingerbread, as well as an 8-Megapixel camera that can do 1080p video rounds.

Then there is the Pocket, from Pantech. It has a 4-inch SVGA display, a 2 GB microSD card, a 5 Megapixel rear camera, and a frame that is just 11.3 thick.

ZTE also enters the AT&T fray with the Avail, and it has a 3.5 inch touchscreen as well as a 5 Megapixel camera.

The Samsung DoubleTime is the last from AT&T, and it seems rather odd to me that it doesn’t have Gingerbread, but still have Froyo.

Okay, that is a lot of Android phones. Just in time so Android can make a killing before the holidays.
