AT&T committed to the launch of 12 Android smartphones in 2011 but once the carrier’s latest batch of devices hits store shelves, it will have surpassed that goal. AT&T on Tuesday announced five new Android-powered handsets from the CTIA show in San Diego, bringing the carrier’s total to 19 devices this year.
The star of the show is likely the highly anticipated Motorola ATRIX 2, pictured above, which features a 4.3-inch qHD display, a 1GHz dual-core processor, 8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, HSPA+ 21 and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. The ATRIX 2 will be released on October 16th for just $99.99 with a 2-year contract. Read on for more.
